LOVE TRIANGLE. A POWER STRUGGLE. AN IMPOSSIBLE TWIST FROM THE MASTER OF DECEPTION. 1.5 MILLION COPIES SOLD


“Dicker salutes Agatha Christie even as he drops the reader through one trapdoor into another, so that by the end, we doubt we’ve ever read another novel quite like it. (We haven’t.) Fans of Ruth Ware and Lucy Foley will hug this book in between chapters; the many readers who love Anthony Horowitz’s mysteries will celebrate. And me? I’ll be reading it again” A.J. Finn

By the author of the Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair:

“It’s that most engaging of treats, a big, fat, intelligent thriller” SIMON MAYO
“It’s a terrific story and I’m loving it” PHILIP SCHOFIELD




It all starts with an innocuous curiosity: at the Hotel Verbier, a luxury hotel in the Swiss Alps, there is no Room 622.

This anomaly piques the interest of the writer Joël Dicker, Switzerland’s most famous literary star, who is staying at the hotel to recover from a bad breakup, mourn the death of his longtime publisher, and begin his next novel. Before he knows it, Joël is coaxed out of his torpor by a fellow guest, who swiftly uncovers the reason behind Room 622’s deliberate erasure: an unsolved murder.

Meanwhile, in the wake of his father’s passing, Macaire Ebezner is set to take over as president of the largest private bank in Switzerland. The succession captivates the news media, and the future looks bright, until Macaire learns that the bank’s board plan to appoint one Lev Levovitch ­- Geneva’s very own Jay Gatsby ­- in his place. What seemed a race to the top has just become a race against time . . .

A Russian doll of a mystery crafted with the precision of a Swiss watch, The Enigma of Room 622 is a diabolically addictive thriller in which a love triangle and a power struggle – fuelled by envy and betrayal ­- play out between Geneva and the Alps, as the truth twists and turns into something no reader will see coming.

“Dicker has the first-rate crime novelist’s ability to lead his readers up the garden path” Sunday Express

Translated from the French by Robert Bononno
