Description

'Michel Bussi is one of France's most ingenious crime writers... has plenty of twists and turns in store in this fast-moving novel about a long-planned act of revenge' Joan Smith, SUNDAY TIMES

'Takes the reader on a thrilling ride across the remote isle in the Indian Ocean with plenty of twists and turns to keep them gripped until an epic, unexpected conclusion' Jon Coates, DAILY EXPRESS

Picture the scene - an idyllic resort on the island of Reunion. Martial and Liane Bellion are enjoying the perfect moment with their six-year-old daughter. Turquoise skies, clear water, palm trees, a warm breeze...

Then Liane Bellion disappears. She went up to her hotel room between 3 and 4pm and never came back. When the room is opened, it is empty, but there is blood everywhere. An employee of the hotel claims to have seen Martial in the corridor during that crucial hour.

Then Martial also disappears, along with his daughter. An all-out manhunt is declared across the island. But is Martial really his wife's killer? And if he isn't, why does he appear to be so guilty?

'Some writers try carefully calibrated alternations on a winning formula from book to book, but offer few surprises. That can't be said of the French author Michel Bussi... That refusal to repeat himself is evident in Don't Let Go, which is just as accomplished as its predecessors - GUARDIAN

'As it draws towards its heart-pounding final pages, it's hard to concentrate on anything other than the outcome of the desperate manhunt - and the startling revelation of the truth. Inventive, original and incredibly entertaining' SUNDAY MIRROR

Review quote

A work of genius befitting the masterpiece by Monet at its heart . . . Simply stunning * DAILY EXPRESS on BLACK WATER LILIES * The novel ends with one of the most reverberating shocks in modern crime fiction * SUNDAY TIMES on BLACK WATER LILIES * A richly satisfying story...a hugely enjoyable ride. * Irish Independent on AFTER THE CRASH * Thriller of the month * Good Housekeeping on AFTER THE CRASH * A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Steig Larsson for the very first time . . . Bussi breaks every rule in the book, but I doubt I'll read a more brilliant crime novel this year * Sunday Times on AFTER THE CRASH * This is a thriller full of suspense that leaves you desperate to know where the truth lies. There are twists, turns and red herrings at every corner . . . A very clever novel, paced perfectly and written with elegance, which wraps up the mystery at a stunning climax -- Mik Brown * Shots magazine * What Bussi's... books do share are a ticking clock mechanism, signaled by constant date and time checks, and a stonking great twist at the end * THE TIMES * as it draws towards its heart-pounding final pages, it's hard to concentrate on anything other than the outcome of the desperate manhunt - and the startling revelation of the truth. Inventive, original and incredibly entertaining * SUNDAY MIRROR * The third novel by the bestselling French author takes the reader on a thrilling ride across the remote isle in the Indian Ocean with plenty of twists and turns to keep them gripped until an epic, unexpected conclusion -- Jon Coates * DAILY EXPRESS * Some writers try carefully calibrated alternations on a winning formula from book to book, but offer few surprises. That can't be said of the French author Michel Bussi... That refusal to repeat himself is evident in Don't Let Go, which is just as accomplished as its predecessors * GUARDIAN * Michel Bussi is one of France's most ingenious crime writers... has plenty of twists and turns in store in this fast-moving novel about a long-planned act of revenge -- Joan Smith * SUNDAY TIMES *
