The Reunion, review:
“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, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
