Megan Davis - The Messenger Contact us to buy specially priced copies of this debut novel and bring your book group along. Set in the heart of Paris, against a backdrop of political corruption, fake news and civil unrest, The Messenger is a mind-racing, intelligent, literary thriller. Following a falsely accused son’s quest to solve his father’s murder and clear his own name, Davis’ award-winning debut is a richly atmospheric, twisting, conspiracy-soaked tale. Charting a young man’s struggle to find redemption and uncover the truth, it’s stylish, tough and gritty and has drawn comparisons to both Catcher in the Rye and the hit Netflix series Lupin.
