‘This first volume signals a striking literary shift… Short chapters, mounting tension and a series of twists which shift between vigilante hacking and shocking discoveries.’
ActuaLitté.com

‘A novel conceived as a TV show. The characters are magnificently drawn, with their flaws and their past lives – this is doubtless the greatest success of the novel. There’s no downtime. This fabulous storyteller knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seat.’
Le Figaro, Mohammed Aïssaoui
