THE NOVELIST KILLS BY THE BOOK For Commandant Camille Verhoeven life is beautiful. He is happily married and soon to become a father. HE'S ALWAYS ONE CHAPTER AHEAD But his blissful existence is punctured by a murder of unprecedented savagery. When his team discovers that the killer has form - and each murder is a homage to a classic crime novel - the Parisian press are quick to coin a nickname . . . The Novelist. HE HATES HAPPY ENDINGS With the public eye fixed on both hunter and hunted, the case develops into a personal duel, each hell-bent on outsmarting the other. There can only be one winner. The one who has the least to lose.

'Thrilling ... with a page-turning race to a grand-slam finish' Laura Wilson, Guardian. * Guardian * 'Irene, Pierre Lemaitre's first novel, will be the book that people will remember in years to come. Intelligent and engrossing, it's a worthwhile read primarily for that sense of amazement that will have you flicking back through pages looking for the mirrors or trapdoors, but also because of the mystery itself. A crime novel for genre fans penned by a man who is obviously a fan himself' Reader Dad. * Reader Dad * 'Quirky, brutal and not for the faint-hearted, it is crime fiction of the highest class ... Superbly constructed and executed, it puts Lemaitre very close to Ellroy's class. If you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down' Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail. * Daily Mail * 'Irene builds on the considerable promise of Alex and confirms Camille Verhoeven as one of the most intriguing protagonists to emerge in crime fiction in recent years' Declan Burke, Irish Times. * Irish Times * 'Ingeniously plotted, deftly mixing dark and comic scenes, introducing the detective's team with panache' John Dugdale, Sunday Times. * Sunday Times * 'Having now read two of his books I am even more impressed by the writing of Pierre Lemaitre, and am already looking forward to the third book being released in English' A Book Worm. * A Book Worm * 'Gripping, frightening, intelligent and brilliant' Marcel Berlins, The Times. * The Times * 'Fans of the legendary Derek Raymond will love this gem' Sunday Sport. * Sunday Sport * 'A unique and gritty novel firmly placing Lemaitre as one of the most talented authors writing in the genre today' Upcoming4.me. * Upcoming4me *
