|Italian Cover (from Goodreads.com)|
The international best seller from 28 year old Swiss author Joël Dicker is being described as "a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book". The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair focuses on a 15 year old New Hampshire girl who went missing 30 years prior and an American author who wants to clear his mentor's name while finding material for his next best seller.
Causing quite the stir at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair has won 3 literary awards in France. Purchased by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo publisher at Frankfurt, rights to this European hit have been been sold in more than 32 countries. Following an intense bidding war executive editor John Siciliano came away the victor for the US publishing rights. Penguin plans a paperback original release in Summer 2014.
