WELCOME TO A SCHOOL REUNION YOU WON’T FORGET

FRENCH RIVIERA, WINTER 1992
On a freezing night, as her high school campus is engulfed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell runs away with Alexis, her philosophy teacher.

No one will ever see them again.

FRENCH RIVIERA, SPRING 2017
Formerly inseparable, Thomas, Maxime and Fanny – Vinca’s best friends – have not spoken in twenty-five years. But when they receive an invitation to their school reunion, they know they must go back one final time.

Because there is a body buried in that school…

…and they’re the ones who put it there.

‘With a sun-drenched Cote d’Azur setting and a deliciously tangled plot of teenage passion, secret assignations, threats and brutal violence, this elegant thriller keeps its nerve-jangling suspense until the very last page’ Daily Mail

Publisher Review

Extraordinary. -- Joan Smith * Sunday Times Culture * The Reunion will see him hailed as one of the great thriller writers of our age. -- Stuart Winter * DAILY EXPRESS * This vastly satisfying mystery is a huge bestseller in France - and it fully deserves to be... Written with fluency and charm, this is breathtakingly good. Do not miss it. * Daily Mail * Hugely enjoyable and beautifully staged, with an audacious authorial coup at the death that is simply breathtaking. -- Declan Hughes * Irish Times * Stylish and streamlined, nostalgic... More please. -- Mark Sanderson * The Times * A fun read, spiced with pop-cultural references. -- Laura Wilson * Guardian (Thrillers of the Month) * This immensely satisfying thriller about a prep school scandal and three friends' buried secrets had me turning the pages well into the night. The Reunion has everything a masterful thriller should: gut-wrenching suspense, a twisting story with blindsiding surprises, and a narrator with a mysterious past. It's no wonder that Guillaume Musso is one of France's most loved, bestselling authors. * Harlan Coben * In Musso's masterful plotting, Thomas faces fresh dangers at every turn. The atmospheric finale - which unfolds at Villa Fitzgerald and along Smugglers Way, the coastal path near some of the most lavish properties on the Cote d'Azur - brings shocking revelations. * BBC.com (The 10 Smartest Beach Reads of 2019) * Despite the ticking-clock premise, Musso takes time to set the atmosphere, with lush details that transport the reader to a locale that's at once glamorous and also laced with a deep, abiding sadness. * Crime Reads (The Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2019) * The French call it a coup de foudre: a strike of lightning. That's how The Reunion zapped me, electrified me. For almost a decade, Guillaume Musso has reigned supreme as France's most popular author, and with this, his American debut, he's instantly poised to join the ranks of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. The Reunion zigzags so nimbly - between past and present, from intrigue to terror, amid possible suspects and potential victims - that you're at very real risk of whiplash. Witty, elegant, and peopled with complex characters, it's one of the most sheerly suspenseful novels I've read in years - and among the most enjoyable, too. * A.J. Finn, #1 bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW * This is a suspenseful and utterly consuming novel... Highly addictive! -- Helena Gumley-Mason * THE LADY * Generations and eras intertwine against the backdrop of a murderous school campus... The perfect summer book to devour while lounging by a swimming pool * Elle * A fine tale of suspense from France's best-selling author. * Booklist * Despite the ticking-clock premise, Musso takes time to set the atmosphere, with lush details that transport the reader to a locale that's at once glamorous and also laced with a deep, abiding sadness. * CrimeReads * Long-buried secrets will give way to the truth in this tragic, riveting, French-Riviera-set story. * Globe and Mail * A fast-paced thriller, set on the Cote d'Azur, packed with a glamorous missing girl, a dead body, and enough references to Twin Peaks and raves and Belle and Sebastian to tickle anybody who came of age in the 1990s. * Vanity Fair * Hitchcock meets Twin Peaks * Repubblica * With a sun-drenched Cote d'Azur setting and a deliciously tangled plot of teenage passion, secret assignations, threats and brutal violence, this elegant thriller keeps its nerve-jangling suspense until the very last page. -- Jane Shilling * DAILY MAIL *
