New York, New York (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
“Everything in this book—the plot, the atmosphere, the characters, and the style—is perfectly mastered from beginning to end.” That’s how reviewers have described French author Sylvie Granotier’s The Paris Lawyer. The book, translated into English and published by the mystery and thriller publisher Le French Book, is now available in audiobook format, in addition to print and ebook formats.
This gripping whodunit is about reconciliation with those we have lost. The action in this suspense novel takes place between Paris and a village in one of France’s remotest areas, La Creuse, where the beautiful countryside holds dark secrets. The main character witnessed her mother’s murder when she was just a child. Now, a rookie French lawyer who in the midst of investigating her first big case, she uncovers secrets about her mother’s disappearance.
“It’s a great book to experience France with both suspense and mystery, providing a meditation on the nature of love and whether we can ever escape the past and reinvent ourselves. This gives it a universal quality,” publisher and translator Anne Trager says. “The ebook and print books have done very well and we are really happy it is now available as an audiobook.”
