Here‘s an elegantly done new mystery by the author ofMy Bloody Project, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker prize. There is a fatal car crash on the A35 near a small town in France. The dead driver is a very proper, conservative lawyer, and absolutely nothing indicates foul play. Inspector Gorski is bothered by one question: where was the victim driving home from? And that, my friends, is the hook that unveils a hot mess. Literate fun!
