“[An] arresting, fast-paced detective story [that will] keep you guessing.”
NPR, Best Books of 2014

“A sizzling political thriller by one of France’s best crime novelists.”
Globe and Mail (Canada)

“A solid, stylish thriller.”
Complete Review

“The most controversial of contemporary French crime novelists.”
The Independent (UK)

Praise for Murder in Memoriam

“How many detective stories have helped a country confront its past? Murder in Memoriam has certainly done that.”
The Guardian

“Serves as a tap on the shoulder—a necessary reminder that what is dead is not buried, and what is buried is, unfortunately, not dead.”
—Derek Raymond

Murder in Memoriam is the kind of book that begins to restore one’s confidence in the detective story. Not only has Daeninckx produced a particularly intriguing narrative, but he has found a way to give this narrative a satisfying significance . . . A touch of moral vision and a pinch of righteous anger work wonders.”
—Nick Hornby

“Didier Daeninckx is a novelist, magician and archaeologist prince . . . A frightening book.”
—Jerome Charyn

“A crime fiction landmark.”
Reviewing the Evidence

“A masterful weave of political history.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise for A Very Profitable War

“One hell of an unflinching look at war and its aftermath.”
The Thrilling Detective

“An entertaining thriller . . . A Very Profitable War is also noteworthy because Daeninckx doesn’t just think outside the box as far as this fairly well-worn genre goes, he shatters it.”
The Complete Review

“Melville House continues to uncover hidden gems and this 1984 novel by one of France’s most popular writers is a perfectly polished jewel . . . Let’s hope Melville House brings out more of Daeninckx’s novels.”
Globe and Mail (Canada)
