The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair

Joel Dicker

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 protege - 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.

Marcus Goldman is a vain young author whose first book has made him rich and famous. Now suffering writer’s block, he seeks help from his old writing professor, Harry Quebert, in rural New Hampshire. When a young girl’s body is found, Quebert is accused of murder. Goldman fights to clear his name. This book is an extremely original and often amusing thriller. It’s already taken Europe by storm.
