9781474601764: Black Water Lilies: A stunning, twisty murder mystery

[Translated by Shaun Whiteside]
[Read by Joan Walker]

From the author of the ''wonderfully ingenious'' (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review) novel After the Crash, a thrilling tale of a murder that takes place in Claude Monet's garden and the mystery that surrounds it.

Giverny, France. During the day, the town is the home of the famous artist Claude Monet and the gardens where he painted his waterlilies. But once the tourists have gone, there is a darker side to the peaceful French village.

This is the story of thirteen days that begin with one murder and end with another. Jerome Morval, a man whose passion for art was matched only by his passion for women, has been found dead in the stream that runs through the gardens. In his pocket is a postcard of Monet's Water Lilies with the words: Eleven years old. Happy Birthday.

Entangled in the mystery are three women: a young painting prodigy, the seductive village schoolteacher, and an old widow who watches over the village from a mill by the stream. All three of them share a secret. But what do they know about the discovery of Jerome Morval's corpse? And what is the connection to the mysterious, rumored painting of Black Water Lilies?

About the Author:

Michel Bussi is one of France's most celebrated crime authors, the winner of more than fifteen major literary awards. He is a professor of geography at the University of Rouen and a political commentator. After the Crash is his first book to appear in English, as well as twenty other languages.

Review:

''Bussi's portrait of the difficulties of investigating a closed community is fascinating, and the novel ends with one of the most reverberating shocks in modern crime fiction.'' --The Sunday Times (UK)

''[A] dazzling, unexpected, and haunting masterpiece.'' --The Daily Mail (UK)

''Murder always seems especially appalling against a beautiful backdrop, which is why Michel Bussi's novel begins to strikingly.... A good deal of eccentric Gallic charm.'' --Sunday Express (UK)

''A work of genius befitting the masterpiece by Monet at its heart.... Bussi cleverly breaks all the perceived rules of plotting in a story containing riddles within riddles.... But every loose thread is meshed neatly together in the final pages until the jaw-dropping big reveal at the end. The result is simply stunning.'' --Daily Express (UK)

''The plot is set in Giverny, where Monet planted and painted water lilies. It's where the characters live, the murders are committed, the clues are scattered, and the police investigate ... [an] intelligent and absorbing book.'' --The Times (UK)

''This fascinating tale of intrigue and murder delves into complicated family bonds as it builds to a surprising and shocking conclusion.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Fast-paced and action-packed, this thriller is adrenaline pumping. Bussi offers a smart, complex mystery with plenty of plausible twists and surprises ... An engrossing story that's almost impossible to put down.'' --Shelf Awareness
