about

'Riveting! Bussi spins psychological suspense at its finest with this consuming tale of one child, two families, and the dark secrets that define us all. Clear your schedule; this book is worth it!' - Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Crash & Burn and Find Her

On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly. The miraculous sole survivor is a three-month-old baby girl. Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades. Is she Lyse-Rose or Emilie?

Eighteen years later, having failed to discover the truth, private detective Crédule Grand-Duc plans to take his own life, but not before placing an account of his investigation in the girl's hands. But, as he sits at his desk about to pull the trigger, he uncovers a secret that changes everything - then is killed before he can breathe a word of it to anyone . . .

'A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the very first time. Bussi's novel brings with it the same thrill of discovering a truly original voice.'Joan Smith, Sunday Times

'After the Crash is a jolt to the senses and a jolt to the heart - both rollicking and labyrinthine, both wildly propulsive and yet rich with grand drama, and with a cast of characters - particularly its sumptuously powerful women - you won't forget' Megan Abbott, author of The Fever

'You find yourself quite frantic to know the truth, before this cleverly constructed, smart mystery concludes by delivering a delicious sting in the tail.' Sunday Mirror

'Truly compelling ...Michel Bussi knows exactly how to keep the reader turning page after page even when it's past time to turn out that bedside lamp' Barry Forshaw, Good Book Guide
