Vain, womanising Tony and passionate, manipulative Andrée met eight times in eleven months in the blue room at the Hôtel des Voyageurs for afternoons of abandoned love. For Tony the conversation that last time was just the casual, almost banal, talk of lovers. But for Andrée it was something else. And it led inevitably to an appalling double murder and a nightmare which Tony couldn't escape.

Review:

A wondrous achievement, brief, inexorable, pared to, and agonisingly close to, the bone, and utterly compelling; in short, a true and luminous work of art. (Irish Times John Banville)

A double crime, a dark provincial scandal, and a dreadful sort of triumph . . . presented with shattering power (San Francisco Chronicle)

One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories (Guardian)

A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness (Independent)

Book Description:

'Quiet, subtle, tense...singularly powerful' The New York Times Book Review
