Existentialism meets crime fiction in the third novel from Mark Macrae Burnet, who was shortlisted for the Booker for His Bloody Project. Like Burnet’s debut, The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau (Text PB $19.99), this book also purports to be written by French novelist Raymond Brunet and merely translated by Burnet. It, too, features small-town detective Georges Gorski and the town of St Louis. Gorski is intrigued by a seemingly unremarkable car accident, although he may be more intrigued by the deceased’s wife. The story of the dead man’s son, who plays at reading Sartre, runs in parallel, as both try to find out more about the enigmatic father and husband. Burnet – or is it Brunet? – plays with the familiar tropes of detective fiction, and creates intriguing layers of references.
