Michel Bussi - After The Crash (2nd Hand Paperback)
On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly.
The miraculous sole survivor is a three-month-old baby girl. Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades. Is she Lyse-Rose or Emilie?
Eighteen years later, having failed to discover the truth, private detective Credule Grand-Duc plans to take his own life, but not before placing an account of his investigation in the girl's hands.
But, as he sits at his desk about to pull the trigger, he uncovers a secret that changes everything - then is killed before he can breathe a word of it to anyone . . .

"This was a very different read but a book I could not put down. It's a mystery written by a French author and translated into English and done very well. It's a very complex plot with lots of twists and turns and every time you think you have things figured out, the detective finds a new twist to the plot. And then you find out, even the detective is not being completely truthful. I really enjoyed reading this book and did not want to stop until I found out what really happened. definitely recommend if you enjoy a good mystery." - Goodreads Review.
"It is one of the most remarkable books I've read in a long time; Bussi breaks every rule in the book, but I doubt I'll read a more brilliant crime novel this year." - Joan Smith, Sunday Times.
"There's a great premise to this thriller, which is already a huge bestseller in the author's native France . . . You find yourself quite frantic to know the truth, before this cleverly constructed, smart mystery concludes by delivering a delicious sting in the tail." - Sunday Mirror.
"A richly satisfying story . . . a hugely enjoyable ride." - Irish Independent.
