The truth about the Harry Quebert affair

Dicker, Joël, 1985-2015
August 30, 1975. The day of the disappearance. The day a small New Hampshire town lost its innocence. That summer Harry Quebert fell in love with 15-year-old Nola Kellergan. 33 years later, her body is dug up from his yard along with a manuscript copy of his career-defining novel. Quebert is the only suspect. Marcus Goldman - Quebert's most gifted protégé - throws off his writer's block to save his mentor from the electric chair. Solving the case and penning a new bestseller soon blur together. 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.
