French thriller The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is the book that has taken the world by storm, earning a position as one of the creepiest, cleverest books you’ll read this year.

On August 30th 1975,  Harry Quebert falls 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 his career-defining novel. Quebert is the only suspect.

A 28 year old Swiss lawyer, Dicker has been compared to Nabokov and Roth,  and his debut novel is a brilliantly intricate murder mystery and a love story like no other. Not one to miss!
