A crime story. A love story. More than 2 million copies sold worldwide.

And now a major 10-part MGM TV series starring Patrick Dempsey and Ben Schnetzer.

August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.

That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that made him a household name. Quebert is the only suspect.

Marcus Goldman - Quebert's most gifted protégé - throws off his writer's block to clear his mentor's name. Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon merge into one. As his book begins to take on a life of its own, the nation is gripped by the mystery of 'The Girl Who Touched the Heart of America'.

But with Nola, in death as in life, nothing is ever as it seems.

The film is directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud (Seven Years in Tibet) and released on 23 August on SkyWitness.

The Baltimore Boys, a follow-up to the bestselling The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair, is published in paperback.

An expertly realised, addictive Russian doll of a whodunnit - Fanny Blake, Daily Mail

A top-class literary thriller that smoothly outclasses its rivals - Melissa Katsoulis, The Times

Should delight any reader who has felt bereft since finishing Gone Girl, or Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy - Patricia Nicol, Metro

It's a terrific story and I'm loving it - Philip Schofield, Mail on Sunday

It's like 'Twin Peaks' meets Atonement meets In Cold Blood - the French thriller everyone is talking about - Gaby Wood, Daily Telegraph

An intricate murder mystery that could be the read of the summer - Sunday Times

The tale is expertly told, as unreliable information dances with necessary plot shifts and unexpected moments of catastrophe. An accomplished thriller - James Runcie, Independent

Pacy, pleasingly complex and addictive - Good Housekeeping

Complex, intriguing and highly enjoyable - Heat

With enough plot twists to fill a truck, it is a racy read - Economist

Tremendous fun and almost insanely readable - John Boland, Irish Independent

A seductive read . . . well-crafted and highly enjoyable - Daniel Hahn, Independent on Sunday

Dicker has the first-rate crime novelist's ability to lead his readers up the garden path . . . An excellent story - Caroline Jowett, Sunday Express

Unimpeachably terrific . . . A playful, page-turning whodunit . . . If Norman Mailer had been accused of murder and Truman Capote had collaborated with Dominick Dunne on a tell-all about it, the result might have turned out something like this - Chelsea Cain, New York Times

Dicker's bestseller features a labyrinthine murder mystery and a book-within-a-book subplot . . . It's energetically written and cleverly constructed. - Mail on Sunday
