About the Author:

Michel Bussi is the author of the bestsellers After the Crash and Black Water Lilies, both of which were Waterstones Thriller of the Month. In France, where he has published ten novels, he is the second bestselling author overall, with over a million novels sold in 2016 alone, and he has won over sixteen literary awards. When not writing fiction, he is a Professor of Geography at the University of Rouen.

Review:

A richly satisfying story...a hugely enjoyable ride. * Irish Independent on AFTER THE CRASH * Thriller of the month * Good Housekeeping on AFTER THE CRASH * A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Steig Larsson for the very first time . . . Bussi breaks every rule in the book, but I doubt I'll read a more brilliant crime novel this year * Sunday Times on AFTER THE CRASH * A work of genius befitting the masterpiece by Monet at its heart. The award-winning author weaves an enchanting tale that kept me absolutely hooked as Bussi cleverly breaks all the perceived rules of plotting in a story containing riddles within riddles. It works on multiple levels and left me completely baffled, yearning to work out how the different strands connect. But every loose thread is meshed neatly together in the final pages until the jaw-dropping big reveal at the end. The result is simply stunning * DAILY EXPRESS * enjoyment of this intelligent and absorbing book need not be confined to Monetists * THE TIMES * Murder always seems especially appalling against a beautiful backdrop, which is why Michel Bussi's novel begins to strikingly * SUNDAY EXPRESS * Bussi's portrait of the difficulties of investigating a closed community is fascinating, and the novel ends with one of the most reverberating shocks in modern crime fiction. * SUNDAY TIMES * A bestseller in France, it is a dazzling, unexpected and haunting masterpiece * DAILY MAIL * A work of genius befitting the masterpiece by Monet at its heart . . . Simply stunning * DAILY EXPRESS *
