Publisher's Summary

From the author of His Bloody Project, short-listed for the Man Booker Prize 2016.

There does not appear to be anything remarkable about the fatal car crash on the A35. But one question dogs Inspector Georges Gorski: where has the victim, an outwardly austere lawyer, been on the night of his death?

The troubled Gorski finds himself drawn into a mystery that takes him behind the respectable veneer of the sleepy French backwater of Saint-Louis.

Graeme Macrae Burnet returns with a literary mystery that will beguile fans of His Bloody Project and The Disappearance of Adele Bedeau. Darkly humorous, subtle and sophisticated, The Accident on the A35 burrows deep into the psyches of its characters and explores the forgotten corners of small-town life.

Not much redeemable here

the other is clearly very literate and is a competent writer, but none of the characters in this book are redeemable. at the end of the book I felt like I had wasted a lot of time and energy on negativity. I don't need a happy ending, but at least one person who's worth rooting for would be nice.

A nystery without a conclusion

The audio book held my interest, the reader did a good job. The story ended abruptly leaving a void, but not leaving you with a sense of needing to figure it out.

I have enjoyed all of the Burnet books. The

Introspection and self-doubt of his main characters is interesting and entertaining. I find much of their second guessing of themselves very humorous at times. I would like true conclusions of the story lines, however. But the the writing and narration are excellent.
