Book Description
By a Booker Prize nominee and an internationally bestselling author: a captivating homage to Georges Simenon, an absorbing character study and a highly original detective story. Manfred Baumann is a loner. Socially awkward and perpetually ill at ease, he spends his evenings quietly drinking and surreptitiously observing Adèle Bedeau, the sullen but alluring waitress at a drab bistro in the unremarkable small French town of Saint-Louis. But one day, she simply vanishes into thin air. When Georges Gorski, a detective haunted by his failure to solve one of his first murder cases, is called in to investigate the girl’s disappearance, Manfred’s repressed world is shaken to its core and he is forced to confront the dark secrets of his past. The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau is a literary mystery novel that is, at heart, an engrossing psychological portrayal of an outsider pushed to the limit by his own feverish imagination.

Georgi Gorski - een detective die gekweld wordt door zijn onvermogen om zijn eerste misdaad op te lossen - krijgt de zaak toegewezen.

Book Description
Manfred Baumann è un solitario. Personaggio scomodo e perennemente a disagio in società, passa le serate a bere e a osservare di nascosto Adèle Bedeau, la scontrosa ma seducente cameriera di uno scialbo bistrot nell’insignificante cittadina francese di St. Louis. Ma, quando la ragazza all’improvviso scompare nel nulla, l’esistenza di Manfred, principale sospettato, viene stravolta e scandagliata da George Gorski, un detective perseguitato dalla triste fama di essere un incapace nel risolvere tutti i casi di omicidio che gli sono stati affidati. Sarà difficile, a quel punto, per Manfred, continuare a celare l’oscuro segreto che grava sul suo passato. Dall’affilata penna dell’autore di Progetto di sangue, La scomparsa di Adèle Bedeau è un romanzo poliziesco letterario e, al contempo, un avvincente thriller psicologico.

Book Description
L'évidence n'est pas toujours la vérité. Manfred Baumann est un solitaire. Timide, inadapté, secret, il passe ses soirées à boire seul, en observant Adèle Bedeau, la jolie serveuse du bar de cette petite ville alsacienne très ordinaire. Georges Gorski est un policier qui se confond avec la grisaille de la ville. S'il a eu de l'ambition, celle-ci s'est envolée il y a bien longtemps. Peut-être le jour où il a échoué à résoudre une de ses toutes premières enquêtes criminelles, qui depuis ne cesse de l'obséder. Lorsque Adèle disparaît, Baumann devient le principal suspect de Gorski. Un étrange jeu se met alors en place entre les deux hommes. Une affaire en apparence banale, des vies, une ville, qui le sont tout autant... Graeme Macrae Burnet nous démontre ici avec une incroyable virtuosité que la banalité n'existe pas : elle est la couverture de l'inattendu. À la façon des grands maîtres du noir, de Simenon à Chabrol, il transfigure avec un incroyable talent l'histoire de ses deux héros, paralysés par un passé mystérieux, dont la délivrance réserve bien des surprises.

Book Description
The year is 1869. A brutal triple murder in a remote community in the Scottish Highlands leads to the arrest of a young man by the name of Roderick Macrae. A memoir written by the accused makes it clear that he is guilty, but it falls to the country’s finest legal and psychiatric minds to uncover what drove him to commit such merciless acts of violence. Was he mad? Only the persuasive powers of his advocate stand between Macrae and the gallows. Graeme Macrae Burnet tells an irresistible and original story about the provisional nature of truth, even when the facts seem clear. His Bloody Project is a mesmerising literary thriller set in an unforgiving landscape where the exercise of power is arbitrary.
