Antoine Laurain combines intrigue and charm in a novel full of mystery, love and the power of books.

When the manuscript of a crime novel arrives at a Parisian publishing house, everyone in the readers’ room is convinced it’s something special. The committee for France’s highest literary honour, the Prix Goncourt, agrees.

But when the shortlist is announced, there’s a problem for editor Violaine Lepage: she has no idea of the author’s identity. When the police begin to investigate a series of murders reminiscent of those in the book, Voilaine, suffering memory blanks following an aeroplane accident, starts to wonder what role she might play in the story.

‘A stylish whodunnit blended with an affectionate send-up of the world of books’ Sunday Mirror

‘A profound love of books and authors underpins this sprightly mystery’ Publishers Weekly
