Antoine is twelve years old. His parents are divorced and he lives with his mother in Beauval, a small, backwater town surrounded by forests, where everyone knows everyone's business, and nothing much ever happens. But in the last days of 1999, a series of events unfolds, culminating in the shocking vanishing without trace of a young child. The adults of the town are at a loss to explain the disappearance, but for Antoine, it all begins with the violent death of his neighbour's dog. From that one brutal act, his fate and the fate of his neighbour's six year old son are bound forever. In the years following Remi's disappearance, Antoine wrestles with the role his actions played. As a seemingly inescapable net begins to tighten, breaking free from the suffocating environs of Beauval becomes a gnawing obsession. But how far does he have to run, and how long will it take before his past catches up with him again? Translated from the French by Frank Wynne

Lemaitre may be the best current French writer of crime fiction * Financial Times * Lemaitre is surely France's most elegant and imaginative crime writer -- Marcel Berlins * The Times * Thought-provoking and unsettling, Three Days And A Life is another work of genius from a master storyteller at the top of his game -- Jon Coates * Express * Pierre Lemaitre continues his upward movement with Three Days and a Life ... typically astringent and accomplished fare -- Barry Forshaw * Guardian * No one is writing quirkier thrillers than Lemaitre, who gets inside the head of his unhinged protagonist with wicked delight while capturing the madness of the modern world ... A feverish, wickedly entertaining work * Kirkus Review *
