Waterstones Says

A dual timeline thriller with an atmosphere redolent of The Secret History, Musso’s sinister novel works its insidious way under the reader’s skin with an ominous tale of childhood disappearance and desperately suppressed secrets. Already highly acclaimed in his native France, Musso is an exciting voice for English language readers to encounter.

Welcome to a school reunion you won't forget

FRENCH RIVIERA, WINTER 1992

On a freezing night, as her high school campus is engulfed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell runs away with Alexis, her philosophy teacher.

Formerly inseparable, Thomas, Maxime and Fanny - Vinca's best friends - have not spoken in twenty-five years. But when they receive an invitation to their school reunion, they know they must go back one final time.

Because there is a body buried in that school...

...and they're the ones who put it there.

For fans of Joel Dicker's The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair, Harlan Coben's Tell No One and Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. With the atmosphere of Donna Tartt's The Secret History and David Lynch's Twin Peaks

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The French call it a coup de foudre: a strike of lightning. That's how The Reunion zapped me, electrified me. For almost a decade, Guillaume Musso has reigned supreme as France's most popular author, and with this, his American debut, he's instantly poised to join the ranks of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. The Reunion zigzags so nimbly - between past and present, from intrigue to terror, amid possible suspects and potential victims - that you're at very real risk of whiplash. Witty, elegant, and peopled with complex characters, it's one of the most sheerly suspenseful novels I've read in years - and among the most enjoyable, too.' - A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

'This immensely satisfying thriller about a prep school scandal and three friends' buried secrets had me turning the pages well into the night. The Reunion has everything a masterful thriller should: gut-wrenching suspense, a twisting story with blindsiding surprises, and a narrator with a mysterious past. It's no wonder that Guillaume Musso is one of France's most loved, bestselling authors.' - Harlan Coben 

'Despite the ticking-clock premise, Musso takes time to set the atmosphere, with lush details that transport the reader to a locale that's at once glamorous and also laced with a deep, abiding sadness.' - Crime Reads (The Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2019) 

'Hitchcock meets Twin Peaks.' - Repubblica

'Generations and eras intertwine against the backdrop of a murderous school campus... The perfect summer book to devour while lounging by a swimming pool.' - Elle

“School Reunion set on the French Riviera”

Most of us have secrets buried back in our school days but none of us (hopefully) have actually secrets buried in the school yard. A whole body of a secret to be fair.

The story starts in 1992 with Vinca and Thomas... More
