"Do you think it's possible to live again, Monsieur? ... I mean ... is it possible to die and then ... live again in someone else?" You're no longer in the police, but when an old friend asks you to look after his wife as a favour, how can you refuse? She'sbeen behaving strangely, mysteriously - but she's dazzling. And so Flavieres begins to scour the streets of Paris in search of an answer - in search of a woman who belongs to no one, not even to herself. Soon intrigue is replaced by obsession, and dreams by nightmares, as the boundaries between the living and the dead begin to blur. This is the story of a desperate man. A man who ended up compromising his own morality beyond all measure, while the Second World War raged outside his front door. A man tormented by his search for the truth, and ultimately destroyed by a dark, terrible secret.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This story of obsession, deceit and human frailty has an almost overpowering intensity... Alongside Patricia Highsmith Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac deserve recognition as part of the great tradition of chilling psychological crime fiction. Crime Fiction Lover Makes a fascinating companion to the Hitchcock film, and is, I think, an amazing book in its own right Lit Love Gallic noir at its most psychologically acute Crime Scene A fantastic book Col's Criminal Library One of the pleasures of reading the book is noting how it compares with, and in places even improves on, the film The National A timeless thriller Connexion
