Book DescriptionA bestseller in France and winner of the Prix Renaudot, Grey Souls is a mesmerising and atmospheric tale of three mysterious deaths in an oddly isolated French village during World War I. The placid daily life of a small town near the front seems impervious to the nearby pounding of artillery fire and the parade of wounded strangers passing through its streets. But the illusion of calm is soon shattered by the deaths of three innocents - the charming new schoolmistress who captures every male heart only to kill herself; an angelic ten-year-old girl who is found strangled; and a local policeman's cherished wife, who dies alone in labour while her husband is hunting the murderer. Twenty years later, the policeman still struggles to make sense of these tragedies, a struggle that both torments and sustains him. But excavating the town's secret history will bring neither peace to him nor justice to the wicked.
Editorial ReviewAn odd, disturbing novel, haunted by ghosts, the victims of crimes that are long past but ever present ... a page-turning whodunnit with a subtle aftertaste' Kate Chisholm, Sunday Telegraph. * Sunday Telegraph * 'Overwhelming ... the language is magnificent, each word resonates, each sentence paints a picture' Le Parisien. * Le Parisien * 'A masterpiece ... a beautifully written and mesmeric study of individual and collective guilt' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
