I had not done any video for a while, so I thought this format would be great to make you discover this amazing French author of thrillers.
The video is in English and refers to the English translation of his books.
So come with me and
DISCOVER MICHEL BUSSI
I asked a couple of questions in the comment section of the video on Youtube. I’m curious about your answers.
After I made this video, I also listened to N’oublier jamais – the English translation, Never Forget, will be release on Feb 14, 2019.
The book was smartly put together, with several plots and a cold case reopened for investigation. The end was totally unexpected, as usual with Bussi. I also liked the change of narrators. The main one, Jamal, addresses the reader, trying to convince you of his innocence. Is he the easy scapegoat here? A handicapped man with an Arab name and skin color, and working with mentally handicapped kids? Is he really innocent, and really was trying to help this young lady who ended up jumping the cliff to her death?

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK
My last review was about a fabulous psychological thriller, All Is Not Forgotten, and here is another one! The author was unknown to me. I met her at Chicago Printers Row Lit Festival, she chatted briefly to me about her book, Too Dark To Sleep. The synopsis sounded really good, so she graciously offered a review copy. I am so happy I stopped by her booth!
