Description

"A LABYRINTHINE, MATRYOSHKA DOLL OF A NOVEL, THE BOOK'S MANY LAYERS WILL SHOCK AND ASTOUND YOU." --Mystery Scene Magazine

"UNPREDICTABLE IN A DELICIOUSLY DEPRAVED WAY" --Kirkus Reviews


With a new name and a new life, Sophie Duget hopes that she'll be able to put her demons to rest for good. It soon becomes clear, however, that the real nightmare has only just begun . . .

Young, successful, and happily married-- Sophie thought at first she was becoming absentminded when she started misplacing her mail and forgetting where she'd parked her car the night before.

But then, as her husband and colleagues pointed out with increasing frustration, she began forgetting things she'd said and done, too. And when she was detained by the police for shoplifting, a crime she didn't remember committing, the confusion and blackouts that had begun to plague her took on a more sinister cast.

Now, Sophie is in much deeper water: One morning, she wakes to find that the little boy in her care is dead. She has no memory of what happened. And whatever the truth, her side of the story is no match for the evidence piled against her. Her only hiding place is in a new identity. A new life, with a man she has met online.

But Sophie is not the only one keeping secrets . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 27, 2016 – Like an ingenious long con, this devious psychological thriller from Prix Goncourt winner Lemaitre (The Great Swindle) promises a satisfying eventual payoff but only to readers willing to persevere through a depressing first half centered on a protagonist who's pretty hard to root for, despite the many tragedies in her young life. Down-on-her-luck Parisian Sophie Duguet becomes the subject of a nationwide manhunt, accused of cold-blooded murders including the strangulation of the six-year-old she was caring for which she has no recollection of committing. From there things swiftly worsen for the fugitive, who seems to be struggling more with paralyzing nightmares and other manifestations of what she interprets as mental illness than with evading capture until a second main character, the mysterious Frantz, bursts onto the scene. His arrival turns everything you think you know about Sophie and the story so far on its head, setting up an intensely suspenseful, if wildly unbelievable, cat and mouse game.

Customer Reviews

Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre

Just when I thought Lemaitre's latest novel might not make me shiver as did Alex or Camille--kapow! I didn't move from my chair until I'd finished the book. So wicked, so clever and despite the title, surprisingly lacking in gore. Will take a few days to shake this one out of my head. A delicious read.
