Publisher's Summary

An urgent and enthralling new novel about injustice and betrayal from the author of Birdsong and A Week in December.

Set in 2006, Paris Echo follows Hannah, a 31-year-old American post-doctoral researcher looking into the lives of women during the German Occupation of Paris in 1940-44, and Tariq, a 19-year-old boy who has run away from his home in Morocco, searching for sex and adventure.

Through their culture clash we are taken back into the hidden Paris of the Dark Years, the Algerian War, and the simmering discontents of the banlieue. As both main characters fight to preserve their integrity and their sanity, they find their future shaped by the lives of the dead, by the ghosts of the Paris Metro.
