Graeme Macrae Burnet’s latest novel is a literary mystery that takes place in Saint-Louis, the sleepy French backwater that provided the setting for The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau, and reintroducing Inspector Georges Gorski. This time the diffident sleuth finds himself investigating a seemingly unremarkable fatal car crash – but where had the victim, an outwardly austere lawyer, been on the night of his death? Darkly humorous, subtle and sophisticated, The Accident on the A35 was longlisted for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year award and the Hearst Magazines Big Book Awards.
