Book Description

A teenage girl has been murdered in the sand dunes just outside the house of Dr. Peter Hamilton. The victim is his daughter. Among those looking on as the police investigate is 17-year-old neighbor Amy Lund, a gifted, home-schooled student almost certain of admission to Harvard. Yet she has a secret – and is torn between keeping quiet about what she knows and divulging information that would destroy her own reputation. It does not help that she is in love, from afar, with a boy who was seeing the murdered Hamilton girl, or that she could implicate him in this seemingly random murder.

Paul Micou is the author of eight novels, among them The Music Programme, The Death of David Debrizzi, The Leper's Bell and, most recently, Confessions of a Map dealer. He lives with his wife and two children in Provence.

“Mr. Micou writes with an unfailing comic sense... He has a smart, brisk style... The book often is hilarious, and never less than engaging.” –The Wall Street Journal

“Micou manages to hit many targets without losing the gentle freshness of the satire.” –The Sunday Times

“Graceful, skillful, brilliant...doesn’t begin to do justice to his gorgeous grasp of character and the crispness of his writing.” – The Times

3.0 out of 5 stars Brief 8 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well written interesting story, you do get wrapped up in it. It is however rather short and finished a little abruptly for my liking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tightly Written 17 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tightly written and full of suspense, this book is a page-turner as it explores the compulsive behavior of all the characters. Murder is treated as an inconvenience to the main business of life - which is getting in to Harvard. Only slight criticism, is that I guessed the identity of the killer sometime before the end!

2.0 out of 5 stars I didn't get the point at all. 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Silly short story in my opinion.
Centred entirely on individual's applications to Harvard it was rather boring. I don't know if we were supposed to be surprised or horrified to learn who the murderer was but I was just too glad to reach the last page to be bothered.
