Description : “Press review “Magically built! Never did Guillaume Musso dug his characters so well, gave them so much psychological depth.” Bernard Lehut, RTL “It would be criminal to tell the end.” Alain Jean-Robert, AFP
“Perhaps the most personal novel of Musso […] On a background of blue sky, murderous campuses and disturbing azure big houses, he waltzes a gallery of particularly successful characters.”
“An effective thriller that does not hesitate to rely on the times.”
France Inter. “Looking for the polar of summer? You will love the latest novel by Musso!”
“An effective thriller that does not hesitate to rely on the times.”
France Inter. “Scary, very rhythmic, this new suspense is a real turner page impossible to put aside.” Marie-France Bornais, The Journal of Montreal. “A campus novel” in Pays de Pagnol “Marianne Payot, L’Express.
“An avenging cold box […] an entertaining and skillfully driven polar”. Sophie Pujas, The Point. “**** A suspense in concrete [Guillaume Musso refocuses] on a more classic form and close to the masters of the crime that fed him, Patricia Highsmith in the lead”. Pierre Vavasseur, The Parisian. “A story of poisonous friendships, the thriller that (almost) everyone was waiting for”
Pascale Frey, ELLE. “The Girl and the Night is one of the rare French examples of campus novel, a genre that flourished among the Anglo-Saxons.”
“Guillaume Musso – who does not hide his admiration for Stephen King – knows how to embark his readers in dark walks where the truth finally burst like a blood bubble.” West France. “Guillaume Musso has surprised everyone by transposing his plot on the Côte d’Azur, a first.”
The mountain. “It’s an event, a great book”. Patrick Simonin, TV5 World. Presentation of the publisher. A prestigious campus frozen in the snow. Three friends bound by a tragic secret. A girl carried away by the night
French Riviera – Winter 1992.
On a freezing night, as her high school campus is paralyzed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell, one of the brightest prep school students, runs away with her philosophy teacher with whom she has a relationship secret. For the girl, “love is everything or nothing”.
Nobody will ever see her again.
French Riviera – Spring 2017
Formerly inseparable, Fanny, Thomas and Maxime – the best friends of Vinca – have not spoken since the end of their studies. They meet at a meeting of alumni. Twenty-five years earlier, in terrible circumstances, they all committed murder and locked up the corpse in the high school gymnasium. The one that we must completely destroy today to build another building.
Henceforth, nothing stands in the way of breaking the truth.
