Over the next twenty-four hours, Alice and Gabriel race across New York in search of answers, stumbling upon a startling set of clues that point to a terrible adversary from the past. Alice must finally confront her memories of hunting the serial killer who took everything from her--a man she thought was dead, until now"--

Review Quotes



Praise for Central Park:

"Musso spoons out details and misdirection with brio... the initial conceit provoked plenty of interest... [the] opener is a doozy."--Sarah Weinman, New York Times Book Review

Praise for The Reunion:

"This immensely satisfying thriller about a prep school scandal and three friends' buried secrets had me turning the pages well into the night. The Reunion has everything a masterful thriller should: gut-wrenching suspense, a twisting story with blindsiding surprises, and a narrator with a mysterious past. It's no wonder that Guillaume Musso is one of France's most loved, bestselling authors."--Harlan Coben

"Sure to please those who like to use reading as their cardio."--CrimeReads

A fast-paced thriller, set on the Cote d'Azur, packed with a glamorous missing girl, a dead body, and enough references to Twin Peaks and raves and Belle and Sebastian to tickle anybody who came of age in the 1990s... Musso is not just a popular author but the number one bestselling novelist in France. So you're bound to emerge more branché than those people you see on the beach reading home-grown potboilers.--Lauren Mechling, Vanity Fair

A fine tale of suspense from France's best-selling author.--Michele Leber, Booklist

A multi-layered thriller that's fueled by urgency and drama. Guillaume Musso adds a menacing quality to the glamorous Côte d'Azur. With plot twists unleashed at a furious pace, The Reunion is a nightmare set in privileged utopia.--Frank Brasile, Shelf Awareness

Despite the ticking-clock premise, Musso takes time to set the atmosphere, with lush details that transport the reader to a locale that's at once glamorous and also laced with a deep, abiding sadness.--Crimereads

In Musso's masterful plotting, Thomas faces fresh dangers at every turn. The atmospheric finale--which unfolds at Villa Fitzgerald and along Smugglers Way, the coastal path near some of the most lavish properties on the Côte d'Azur--brings shocking revelations.--Jane Ciabattari, BBC.com

Intense nostalgia and simmering guilt drive this evocative mystery... Musso moves effortlessly between the violent past and the increasingly dangerous present as complicated relationships and tragic misunderstandings unfold... Readers interested in the dark side of the good life on the Cote d'Azur will be satisfied.--Publishers Weekly

Long-buried secrets will give way to the truth in this tragic, riveting, French-Riviera-set story.--Becky Toyne, Globe and Mail

The French call it a coup de foudre: a strike of lightning. That's how The Reunion zapped me, electrified me. For almost a decade, Guillaume Musso has reigned supreme as France's most popular author, and with this, his American debut, he's instantly poised to join the ranks of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. The Reunion zigzags so nimbly -- between past and present, from intrigue to terror, amid possible suspects and potential victims -- that you're at very real risk of whiplash. Witty, elegant, and peopled with complex characters, it's one of the most sheerly suspenseful novels I've read in years -- and among the most enjoyable, too.--A.J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
