Your favorite quote:

Saint-Pierre is an island of shipwrecks. I don’t know why Six hundred and thirty in two centuries. I have come to add myself to this list.

Why this book?

  • Because we found Captain Victor Coste, retired policeman for six years from the world and from men, whose return among them we will follow. Olivier Norek knows how to renew himself, leaving the Parisian suburbs to take us to the mists of the island with such mastery.
  • Because this novel traps us in the net of its script. Situations become tense, making us watch out for broken personalities.
  • ‘Cause when you think it’s over, there’s still THE twist which beautifully wraps up this thriller, offering ending after ending.
