About the Author

Pierre Lemaitre has won several literary awards, including the prestigious Prix Goncourt, for his novel Au revoir lΓ -haut, published in English as The Great Swindle. He also won the Crime Writers' Association International Dagger three times, for The Great Swindle in 2016, and for Alex and Camille, two books in his breakthrough crime trilogy featuring Commandant Camille Verhoeven.


Praise for Pierre Lemaitre
"A really excellent suspense novelist."--Stephen King
"Lemaitre's work is inspired and disturbing and can't be trusted."--Shelf Awareness
"[Lemaitre] has gone from strength to strength . . . The ghost of Alfred Hitchcock hovers over this one, but there's little doubt that the Master of Suspense would feel that his legacy is in reliable hands."--Barry Forshaw, The Independent, on Blood Wedding

"Lemaitre takes his sardonic skills to new heights with this dark, loopy thriller, which portrays the modern workplace as the last place a displaced soul would ever want to be."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This is a fine literary thriller told in a wry, educated style with sly references to everybody from Hawthorne to Mailer. The author also brings the special gloom of French existentialism to his narrative...A high-quality experience for readers with a taste for real pessimism."
"a pulsating serio-comic thriller"--The Sunday Times
"For noir to be good, one must plunge one's head underwater and come out just shy of drowning. Pierre Lemaitre has dared everything here."--Le Parisien
"an absorbing and highly entertaining read"--Daily Express
"Lemaitre manages to mine some wild, dark, and desperate humor out of an almost ridiculously horrid situation, and strangely, it works...this is a disturbing, and disturbingly funny, satire that will resonate with anyone that's had to navigate the inhumanities and inanities of corporate employment or shabby treatment at the hands of superiors."
--Criminal Element

"Unpredictability and truly insane characters is what kept me glued to Inhuman Resources...readers looking for a crime fiction read with a corporate twist should add Inhuman Resources to their list of must-reads."
--Murder and Moore

"Lemaitre is very good at depicting Delambre's diminishment by scores of tiny humiliations, each one a sharp little blade slicing down to his very soul. With every passing page, the ordinary man who was once a loving husband and father loses a little more control...the drama builds to a tense showdown when Lemaitre inexplicably shifts won't see the final twist coming."
--The New York Times
