Publisher's Summary

Jean Garnier lives on the fringes - a lonely nobody who has lost everything dear to him. His girlfriend was killed in an unexplained accident, his mother has just been sent to prison - he has even lost his job after the sudden death of his boss.

In one last, desperate cry for help, Jean sets up seven lethal bombs, hidden all over Paris and timed so that one will explode every 24 hours.

After the first detonation, Jean gives himself up to the police. He has one simple demand: his mother must be released, or the daily explosions will continue.

Camille Verhoeven is faced with a race against time to uncover the secrets of this troubled young man and avert a massive human disaster.

Critic Reviews

"Lemaitre provides an emotionally rich and engaging crime thriller. Highly recommended." (Raven Crime Reads)

"If you like fast-paced crime fiction, this book is definitely for you. Each twist of the plot hits you like a jarring jolt to the heart, and each hit of the hammer pushes that nail in until the very end, when the nail finally goes out the other side. The ending will leave you craving more, but thankfully, Lemaitre gives us time to catch our breath! This tale of vengeance and romance and some of the sickest criminals around will have your heart pounding." (Killer Nashville)

"Another winner from Pierre Lemaitre, a French master.... The kind of book that will keep you up late simply because you cannot bear to desert these poor people in their hour of need.... This trilogy has a complex architecture of cause and effect, sin and retribution all its own. Trust Lemaitre: he knows what he is doing." (Sydney Morning Herald)
