Description

Recently widowed grandmother Eliette is returning to her house in the mountains when her car breaks down. A stranger offers help and Eliette gives him a lift, glad of the company and interruption to her routine.

A tale of retirement and calm domesticity, with a hint of menace about to explode.

Publisher Review

Praise for Pascal Garnier: 'Masterly' John Banville 'Deliciously dark ... painfully funny' Marilyn Stasio, New York Times 'Only now working their way into English translation, Garnier's crime novels add significantly to the latest renaissance for this type of dark narrative.' Publishers Weekly 'Readers will relish the late Pascal Garnier's graveyard humorous dark French noir' Midwest BookReview 'Tense, strange, disconcerting and slyly funny' Sunday Times 'The final descent into violence is worthy of J G Ballard. 4 stars' The Independent 'A master of the surreal noir thriller - Luis Bunuel meets Georges Simenon.' TLS 'Combines a sense of the surreal with a ruthless wit.' The Observer
