Description of this Book

I have several mothers. It's a bit complicated for me. Especially as they really don't like each other. There's even one who's going to die. Maybe it's a little bit my fault... Maybe everything happened because of me. Because I can't remember which one is the real one. Malone, a child of four, starts to claim that his mother isn't his real mother. It seems impossible. His mother has birth certificates, photos of him as a child and even the pediatrician confirms this is her child. The school psychologist is the only one who believes him and he's in a race against time to find out the truth . . . THE WRONG MOTHER is a blistering new novel full of twists and turns from the bestselling author of AFTER THE CRASH.

NZ Review Michel Bussi is one of France's most ingenious crime writers... has plenty of twists and turns in store in this fast-moving novel about a long-planned act of revenge Some writers try carefully calibrated alternations on a winning formula from book to book, but offer few surprises.

That refusal to repeat himself is evident in Don't Let Go, which is just as accomplished as its predecessors - GUARDIAN This elegant crime mystery shimmers as delicately as the paintings of Claude Monet that lie at its heart . . . A bestseller in France, it is a dazzling, unexpected and haunting masterpiece - Daily Mail on BLACK WATER LILIES Bussi cleverly breaks all the perceived rules of plotting in a story containing riddles within riddles . . . stunning - DAILY EXPRESS
