"A sophisticated and urbane novel with a swanky, dapper European setting that is as much Poe and Chandler as Hitchcock and Truffaut. This is a page-turner all its own, one that asks you to rethink what you thought was too obvious to be true and to reconsider the obvious in case you were wrong. You'll want to reread it as soon as you get to the last page."

André Aciman, author of Call Me by Your Name and Out of Egypt
