Publisher's Summary

A new translation of George Simenon's taut, devastating psychological novel set in American suburbia. The inspiration for the new play by award-winning playwright David Hare.
'I had begun, God knows why, tearing a corner off of everyday truth, begun seeing myself in another kind of mirror, and now the whole of the old, more or less comfortable truth was falling to pieces.'
Confident and successful, New York advertising executive Ray Sanders takes what he wants from life. When he goes missing in a snowstorm in Connecticut one evening, his closest friend begins to reassess his loyalties, gambling with Ray's fate and his own future.

Simenon psychology

For many people, Simenon is Maigret and Paris. This is neither, and demonstrates the breadth of Simenon's writing and the depth of his understanding of human nature, and of women in particular. A disturbing but compelling psychological study set in America. Well read and thoroughly recommended, albeit a chilly read.
