Eigentlich gibt es nichts Außergewöhnliches an dem tödlichen Autounfall auf der A35 unweit des elsässischen Städtchens Saint Louis. Doch eine Frage treibt Kommissar Georges Gorski um: Wo war das Unfallopfer Bertrand Barthelme in der Nacht, in der er mit seinem Wagen frontal gegen einen Baum krachte? Als Barthelmes Spuren zu einer jungen Prostituierten in Straßburg führen, die just in jener Nacht erdrosselt wurde, ist der kauzige Provinzkommissar alarmiert. Schnell verstrickt sich Gorski in einem mysteriösen Rätsel um den Toten, das tief hinter die harmlose Fassade der verschlafen wirkenden Kleinstadt Saint Louis blicken lässt. Und auch Barthelmes Sohn Raymond beginnt dem Geheimnis seines verstorbenen Vaters nachzuspüren, das die wohlgeordnete Welt des 17-Jährigen schon bald gehörig ins Wanken bringt ... Bestsellerautor Graeme Macrae Burnet meldet sich mit einem außergewöhnlichen literarischen Kriminalroman zurück, der die Fans von Sein blutiges Projekt und Das Verschwinden der Adèle Bedeau begeistern wird. Gewohnt raffiniert und voller schwarzem Humor blickt er in Der Unfall auf der A35 erneut tief in die Psyche seiner Charaktere und spürt den dunklen Seiten des elsässischen Kleinstadtlebens nach. Ein meisterhafter Kriminalroman, der das Genre ebenso geschickt wie sprachlich brillant neu erfindet.
