More About Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch
 
 
 
Overview
The blistering, compulsively readable new novel from Herman Koch, author of the instant "New York Time"s bestseller "The Dinner."
When a medical procedure goes horribly wrong and famous actor Ralph Meier winds up dead, Dr. Marc Schlosser needs to come up with some answers. After all, reputation is everything in this business. Personally, he s not exactly upset that Ralph is gone, but as a high profile doctor to the stars, Marc can't hide from the truth forever.
It all started the previous summer. Marc, his wife, and their two beautiful teenage daughters agreed to spend a week at the Meier s extravagant summer home on the Mediterranean. Joined by Ralph and his striking wife Judith, her mother, and film director Stanley Forbes and his much younger girlfriend, the large group settles in for days of sunshine, wine tasting, and trips to the beach. But when a violent incident disrupts the idyll, darker motivations are revealed, and suddenly no one can be trusted. As the ultimate holiday soon turns into a nightmare, the circumstances surrounding Ralph s later death begin to reveal the disturbing reality behind that summer s tragedy.
Featuring the razor-sharp humor and acute psychological insight that made "The Dinner" an international phenomenon, "Summer House with Swimming Pool" is a controversial, thought-provoking novel that showcases Herman Koch at his finest."
