“Brilliant, evocative, elegiac and suffused with sadness . . . a powerful and beautiful reminder of Faulkner’s dictum that the only thing truly worth writing about is ‘the human heart in conflict with itself’.”

Booklist (starred review)

“Three decades after it began, an unlikely investigator examines the way the Nazi occupation of France turned neighbor against neighbor and led to murder. . . . A subtle thriller/whodunit, written with wit, intelligence and luminous precision.”
