Alex: The Commandant Camille Verhoeven Trilogy | [Pierre Lemaitre]

Alex: The Commandant Camille Verhoeven Trilogy

Alex Prevost - kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage - is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible - but first he must understand more about her.

Publisher's Summary

Upon winning the prestigious 2013 Crime Writers Association International Dagger Award, the judges praised Alex by saying, "An original and absorbing ability to leash incredulity in the name of the fictional contract between author and reader.... A police procedural, a thriller against time, a race between hunted and hunter, and a whydunnit, written from multiple points of view that explore several apparently parallel stories which finally meet."

Alex Prevost - kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage - is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first? Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible - but first he must understand more about her. As he uncovers the details of the young woman's singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alex's life will be the least of Commandant Verhoeven's considerable challenges.

    I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.

    "A Dark Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not sure, It's a dark book, and it's good, but it's gritty and makes you feel dirty listening or reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    People have been comparing it to Gone Girl, but I haven't read it, so I can't compare it, but the twists and turns this story takes are really good, and entertaining in some dark twisted way.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way, it's good, but it's too dark and after a while, I wanted a shower, and to talk to someone about it. It's gritty, violent and disturbing.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a solid dark, gritty thriller with lots of twists and turns. It has an interesting cast of characters, and the French translation is well and helped keep the story together and possible to understand.

    This was a phenomenal audiobook. So many twists and turns. Absolutely riveting. Now I've got to read the other books in the series.

    Story
    "good if you like fast paced thrillers with twists"

    intense story with a lot of great twists that really kept it moving. every time you get to a resolution, you realize that it's just the beginning of another crazy turn in the story.

    there were definitely some cultural differences in the plot and in the writing, but they didn't detract from the intensity of the story.

    as a character, Alex was well developed and had a lot of depth and interest. the way her story unfolds through her narration and through the investigation surrounding her kidnapping is layered in such a way that til the very last few pages you are still guessing...which makes for a good mystery.

    worthy read for people who like this type of novel.
