    A brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish farming community in 1869 leads to the arrest of 17-year-old Roderick Macrae. There is no question that Macrae committed this terrible act. What would lead such a shy and intelligent boy down this bloody path? Presented as a collection of documents, His Bloody Project opens with a series of police statements taken from the villagers, which offer conflicting impressions, throwing Macrae's motive and his sanity into question.

    From the author of His Bloody Project, short-listed for the Man Booker Prize 2016. There does not appear to be anything remarkable about the fatal car crash on the A35. But one question dogs Inspector Georges Gorski: where has the victim, an outwardly austere lawyer, been on the night of his death? The troubled Gorski finds himself drawn into a mystery that takes him behind the respectable veneer of the sleepy French backwater of Saint-Louis.

    Manfred Baumann is a loner. Socially awkward and perpetually ill at ease, he spends his evenings quietly drinking and surreptitiously observing Adèle Bedeau, the sullen but alluring waitress at a drab bistro in the unremarkable small French town of Saint-Louis. But one day, she simply vanishes into thin air. When Georges Gorski, a detective haunted by his failure to solve one of his first murder cases, is called in to investigate the girl's disappearance, Manfred's repressed world is shaken to its core.

    L'évidence n'est pas toujours la vérité. Manfred Baumann est un solitaire. Timide, inadapté, secret, il passe ses soirées à boire seul, en observant Adèle Bedeau, la jolie serveuse du bar de cette petite ville alsacienne très ordinaire. Georges Gorski est un policier qui se confond avec la grisaille de la ville. S'il a eu de l'ambition, celle-ci s'est envolée il y a bien longtemps. Peut-être le jour où il a échoué à résoudre une de ses toutes premières enquêtes criminelles, qui depuis ne cesse de l'obséder.
