Winner of the Grande Prix de Litterature Policiere, a darkly comic novel of love, obsession, and revenge set among the literary elite. Sir Edward Destry, the head of a distinguished London publishing house, and French novelist Nicholas Fabry have been friends for more than thirty years. Over time, however, Sir Edward's affection has soured into envy. So when his dashing friend's latest novel becomes a bestseller and garners the prestigious Prix Goncourt, Sir Edward is enraged—especially since Fabry's latest fiction is no fiction. The sensational tale is actually a thinly veiled account of Fabry's affair with Yasmina, the only woman Sir Edward ever loved. Sir Edward had always blamed himself for Yasmina's tragic suicide, never realizing it was Fabry's seduction and abandonment that had driven her to take her own life. While Fabry is feted by the French literary world, Sir Edward plots his revenge. With precision and passion, he devises a plan guaranteed to cause disgrace, ruin—and death by publication.
