Acclaim from Around the World for "The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair"
France
"If you dip your toes into this major novel, you're finished: you won't be able to keep from sprinting through to the last page. You will be manipulated, thrown off course, flabbergasted and amazed by the many twists and turns, red herrings and sudden changes of direction in this exuberant story.""--""Le Journal du Dimanche"
"A funny, intelligent, breathtaking book within a book . . . There is a real joy in discovering this extraordinary novel." --"Lire"
"A master stroke . . . A crime novel with not one plot line but many, full of shifting rhythms, changes of course and multiple layers that, like a Russian doll, slot together beautifully . . . In maestro form, Dicker alternates periods and genres (police reports, interviews, excerpts from novels) and explores America in all its excesses--media, literary, religious--all the while questioning the role of the literary writer.""--""L'Express"
"The success story of the literary season . . . An American thriller reminiscent of the best work of Truman Capote."--"Paris-Match"
"Dizzying, like the best American thrillers . . . Rich in subplots and twists, moving backwards and forwards in time, containing books within books." --"Le Figaro"
Italy
"After "The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, " the contemporary novel will no longer be the same. Verdict: summa cum laude. . . . A beautiful novel." --"Corriere della Sera"
"Narrative talent is about making a work of art out of life. Dicker has got it." --"Vanity Fair"
Germany
"A book within a book, a crime novel, a love story. Extraordinary." --"Cosmopolitan"
"Brilliantly narrated." --"Stern"
Switzerland
"A novel with all the ingredients of a global bestseller." --"Die Zeit"

"Never have I felt so compelled to recommend a book this highly. . . . I was mesmerized and fascinated long af

Worldwide Acclaim for "The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair"
U.S.
"This sprawling, likable whodunit [is] obvious ballast for the summer's beach totes. . . . Dicker keeps the prose simple and the pace snappy in a plot that winds up with more twists than a Twizzler. . . . [An] entertaining debut thriller." --"Kirkus Reviews"
England
"The cleverest, creepiest book you'll read this year . . . The most talked-about French novel of the decade . . . Breathtakingly plotted . . . Addictively fast . . . It's like "Twin Peaks" meets "Atonement" meets "In Cold Blood." . . . The New England setting [is] immersively convincing. . . . Very few foreign-language novels make big waves in Anglophone countries, but this one seems genuinely likely to buck the trend." --"The Telegraph"
France
"If you dip your toes into this major novel, you're finished: you won't be able to keep from sprinting through to the last page.

Product Description

A crime story. A love story. More than 2 million copies sold worldwide.

And now a major 10-part MGM TV series starring Patrick Dempsey and Ben Schnetzer.

August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.

That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell 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 the novel that made him a household name. Quebert is the only suspect.

Marcus Goldman - Quebert's most gifted protégé - throws off his writer's block to clear his mentor's name. Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon merge into one. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of 'The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America'.

But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems.

The film is directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud (Seven Years in Tibet) and released on 23 August on SkyWitness.

The Baltimore Boys, a follow-up to the bestselling The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair, is published in paperback.
