“Everything in this book—the plot, the atmosphere, the characters, and the style—is perfectly mastered from beginning to end.” That’s how François Estrada described Sylvie Granotier’s La Rigole du Diable (Devil’s Creek) in L’Echo. And Le French Book is happy to announce that we will kick off our Crime Fiction collection with this skillful mix of psychological thriller and legal procedural! We are really pleased to have Sylvie Granotier joining us in this publishing adventure. She’s a seasoned author with seventeen books to her name. This is her latest novel, which came out last year in France and won the 2011 Sang d’Encre prize. The action takes place between Paris and a village in one of France’s remotest areas, La Creuse, where the beautiful countryside holds dark secrets.
