Publisher's Summary

A twisting new thriller from the author of The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair

In the summer of 1994, the quiet seaside town of Orphea reels from the discovery of two brutal murders. Confounding their superiors, two young police officers, Jesse Rosenberg and Derek Scott, crack the case and arrest the murderer, earning themselves handsome promotions and the lasting respect of their colleagues.   

But 20 years later, just as he is on the point of taking early retirement, Rosenberg is approached by Stephanie Mailer, a journalist who believes he made a mistake back in 1994 and that the real murderer is still out there, perhaps ready to strike again. Before she can give any more details however, Stephanie Mailer mysteriously disappears without trace and Rosenberg and Scott are forced to confront the awful possibility that her suspicions might have been proved horribly true.   

What happened to Stephanie Mailer?   

What did she know?   

And what really happened in Orphea all those years ago?

No Numbered Chapters

I didn’t like the way the book was structured with no chapter Number. It was very difficult to return to the place you last read to, especially if the Book jumped ahead or jumped back. If this is the way this author structures his books I won’t be listening to any more.

Amateurish

Disconnected, too many flips back in time, too many characters, too many end of book explanations needed and unneeded. Other than that, it was all I could do not to stop and give up in the middle of the book or earlier.

A very tricky story

Enjoyed it since page 1. Loved the way the storyline was put all together. perfectly structured. maybe and just maybe the revelation of the killer could have been shortened by about two chapters. it was exhausting to keep listening that one clue took it to another and to another and to another. I rated 5. It was an excellent book

Was this really the same Joel Dicker?

This was such a disappointment. I found Baltimore Boys to be a real tour de force and although there was poor characterisation of the female lead in The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair, it was still gripping. The plot of this book was simply uninteresting, the characters were one-dimensional and it felt as if every single line of prose was taken a cliche. What has happened? Sadly even the narration was bland. Avoid at all costs, especially if you loved his previous books.

Confusing

It might just be me but I found this book confusing with the different time frames and different characters. The main story is ok but I just couldn't really get into it. Just my opinion at the time and could be me.
