Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best seller
Waterstones nonfiction book of the month
On the Saturday morning of January 9, 1993, while Jean Claude Romand was killing his wife and children, I was with mine in a parent-teacher meeting....
With these chilling first words, acclaimed master of psychological suspense Emmanuel Carrère begins his exploration of the double life of a respectable doctor, 18 years of lies, five murders and the extremes to which ordinary people can go.


What the Critics Say

"As a writer, Carrère is straight berserk; as a storyteller he is so freakishly talented, so unassuming in grace and power that you only realize the hold he's got on you when you attempt to pull away. You say: True crime and literature? I don't believe it. I say: Believe it." (Junot Díaz)
"Mesmerising." ( Sunday Telegraph)
"Stunning." ( Evening Standard)
