Reviews

"Unputdownable...Imagine a sleek, twenty-first century version of In Cold Blood." --The Washington Post Book World

"The mesmerizing true crime tale of an apparently ordinary man whose life mutates in the space of a few blood-splattering hours from the realm of Renoir to that of Stephen King." --People

"Mesmerizing...a fascinating meditation on Jean-Claude Romand and what his bizarre life might mean." --The New York Times Book Review

"As a writer, Carrère is straight berserk; as a storyteller he is so freakishly talented, so unassuming in grace and power that you only realize the hold he's got on you when you attempt to pull away....You say: True crime and Literature? I don't believe it. I say: Believe it." --Junot Díaz, author of Drown
