From the bestselling author of After the Crash, "a novel so extraordinary it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the first time."--Sunday Times
Holidaying in an idyllic resort on the island of R union, wealthy Parisians Martial and Liane Bellion are enjoying the perfect family moment with their six-year-old daughter. Turquoise skies, clear water, palm trees, a warm breeze.
Then Liane Bellion disappears from her hotel room. The door to her room is open, the walls and sheets are spotted with blood. A hotel employee swears he saw Martial in the corridor at the time Liane went missing, and he becomes the number one suspect. But then Martial also disappears, along with his daughter. An all-out manhunt is declared across the island.
Could Martial really have killed his wife? For fans of Gone Girl and The Fugitive, Bussi's fast-paced, atmospheric thriller does not disappoint.
