“One of the world’s most original voices in crime fiction
A. J. Finn, #1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

The murder of Alaska Sanders was quickly solved. Within days, two suspects were identified. One died, the other pleaded guilty. Case closed.

But, eleven years later, the death of another woman in a fast-food parking lot changes everything. Marcus Goldman, celebrity author and amateur investigator, picks up a thread that will unravel not only an open and shut case, but the very fabric of his best friend’s life.

Sergeant Perry Gahalowood, who led the original investigation, is hell-bent on setting the record straight. Teaming up with Marcus, he seeks redemption in most the intricate and testing case of his career.

In this sequel to the phenomenal worldwide bestseller The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair, Joël Dicker delivers the last word in slow-burn police procedurals. Clue by clue, witness by witness, question by question, his characters solve an unguessable puzzle that could only have been set by the master of the plot twist.

Sunday Times
A literary superstar
A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window and End of Story
Joël Dicker's novels evoke the creepy pastoral dread of Twin Peaks, the clockwork plotting of Golden Age detective fiction, and the black comedy of the noir masters. If The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair read like Gatsby by way of David Lynch, then The Alaska Sanders Affair recalls True Detective: there's something both classic and daring about it. One of the world's most original voices in crime fiction
