Irene (Spanish Edition)
by Pierre Lemaitre




Overview -
El comandante Camille Verhoeven vive la vida perfecta: est casado con la maravillosa Irene, con la que espera su primer hijo. Pero su felicidad se resquebraja tras un asesinato inusualmente salvaje. Desde que la noticia se hace p blica, la prensa parece acecharlo y cada uno de sus movimientos se convierte en noticia de portada. Cuando Verhoeven descubre que el asesino ha matado antes --y que cada uno de sus cr menes parece rendir homenaje a una novela negra cl sica--, los periodistas se apresuran a darle un sobrenombre: El Novelista . Quienes pueden ayudar a encontrarlo se suman a la lista de sospechosos: un librero y un profesor universitario expertos en novela negra. La investigaci n se convierte as en un duelo intelectual, y en una aterradora carrera contra el reloj. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Pierre Lemaitre is known for writing crime fiction with an alchemical mix of white-knuckle intensity, fearlessly unconventional plotting, and psychologically intricate character development. In Irene Lemaitre ingeniously uses five contemporary and classic literary murder scenes--from William McIlvanney's Laidlaw to Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho--as the framework on which to craft a diabolical prequel to his Crime Writers' Association International Dagger Award-winning novel Alex. Camille Verhoeven, whose diminutive stature belies his fierce intensity, has reached an unusually content (for him) place in life. he is respected by his colleagues and he and his lovely wife, Irene, are expecting their first child.
