"A dazzling thriller: Stunningly original and brilliantly plotted, down to the very last twists. It's a murder mystery, a literary puzzle, and a love story, all ingeniously woven into a masterly novel of suspense. Joel Dicker is an enormous talent, and this book is extraordinary" (The New York Times). Joel Dicker is Swiss, but spent his childhood in the United States. So it's not surprising that his novel is set in New Hampshire and involves two generations of writers, one of whom is accused of murder. The success of his debut is the stuff of legend.

Please note: The American Edition is a cheaply produced paperback, and was released after the British Edition. There is no comparison between the beautiful, collectible British Edition and its American "reading copy" counterpart. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPY OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0857053094. Bookseller Inventory # 18876
Synopsis: Instant New York Times Bestseller
?Unimpeachably terrific.? ?The New York Times Book Review
One of CBS This Morning?s 6 ?Must-Have Titles for Your Summer Reading List?
The publishing phenomenon topping bestseller lists around the world, with sales of more than two million copies in Europe and rights sold in more than forty countries, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book, by a dazzling young writer.
August 30, 1975: the day fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan is glimpsed fleeing through the woods, never to be heard from again; the day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.
Thirty-three years later, Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist, visits Somerset to see his mentor, Harry Quebert, one of the country?s most respected writers, and to find a cure for his writer?s block as his publisher?s deadline looms. But Marcus?s plans are violently upended when Harry is suddenly and sensationally implicated in the cold-case murder of Nola Kellergan?whom, he admits, he had an affair with. As the national media convicts Harry, Marcus launches his own investigation, following a trail of clues through his mentor?s books, the backwoods and isolated beaches of New Hampshire, and the hidden history of Somerset?s citizens and the man they hold most dear. To save Harry, his own writing career, and eventually even himself, Marcus must answer three questions, all of which are mysteriously connected: Who killed Nola Kellergan? What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a book to save someone?s life?
Product Description: August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that made him a household name. Quebert is the only suspect. Marcus Goldman - Quebert's most gifted protege - throws off his writer's block to clear his mentor's name. Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon merge into one. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of 'The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America'. But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems.
