The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair 
by Joel Dicker

This book may only just have been published in the UK, but chances are you’ve already heard about it.

Joel Dicker’s second novel has already been a hit in his native French – so much so that a big-screen adaptation set to be directed by Ron Howard.

There are startling similarities between the plot and real life. But, as with any good book, there are a few twists in the tale.

It’s difficult for any book to live up to this kind of hype, but The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair really does – make sure you read it before the film gives away the ending.
