The Accident on the A35
The methodical but troubled Chief Inspector Georges Gorski visits the wife of a lawyer killed in a road accident, the accident on the A35. The case is unremarkable, the visit routine.
Mme Barthelme--alluring and apparently unmoved by the news--has a single question: where was her husband on the night of the accident? The answer might change nothing, but it could change everything. And Gorski sets a course for what can only be a painful truth.
But the dead man's reticent son is also looking for answers. And his search will have far more devastating consequences.
The Accident on the A35is the spellbinding follow-up to Graeme Macrae Burnet's debut noir novel The Disappearance of Ad#65533;le Bedeau.
Graeme Macrae Burnet was born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, and now lives in Glasgow. He won a Scottish Book Trust New Writer's Award in 2013 and the following year he published his debut novel The Disappearance of Ad#65533;le Bedeau. His Bloody Project, his second novel, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
