Publisher Description

"A captivating psychological thriller" -Herald. 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.

Timeless, clever, thriller with a difference

This is not so much a crime thriller as a psychological page-turner, in which our loner hero/anti-hero faces up to his nemesis, the not-terribly-competent detective, and we learn his secrets from the past. It's very different and one of the best books I've read this past year. Thoroughly recommended.
