Agatha Christie updated (with sex, DNA samples and that modern staple, the mobile phone) then cranked up to 11, and the reader will not mind that one jot as they go along for the ride: it's a blast.
PRAISE FOR MICHEL BUSSI'S NOVELS 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
You find yourself quite frantic to know the truth, before this cleverly constructed, smart mystery concludes by delivering a delicious sting in the tail.
Clear your schedule: this book is worth it!
A work of genius.
A dazzling, unexpected and haunting masterpiece.
The novel ends with one of the most reverberating shocks in modern crime fiction.
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.
A thrilling ride across the remote isle in the Indian Ocean with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers gripped until an epic, unexpected conclusion.
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.
Combines an extraordinarily inventive plot with characters haunted by long-ago events - and demonstrates why he has such a hold on readers.
Never Forget wittily explodes the whole concept of the serial killer sub-genre. The result is outrageously entertaining.
A labyrinth as exhilarating as anything in Bussi's breakthrough novel, After the Crash.
