A new translation of Simenon's gripping novel about lives transformed by deceit and the destructive power of lust.
It was all real: himself, the room, Andrée still lying on the ravaged bed.
For Tony and Andrée, there are no rules when they meet in the blue room at the Hôtel des Voyageurs. Their adulterous affair is intoxicating, passionate - and dangerous. Soon it turns into a nightmare from which there can be no escape.
Simenon's stylish and sensual psychological thriller weaves a story of cruelty, reckless lust and relentless guilt.

"One of the greatest writers of the 20th century.... Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." (Guardian)
"A supreme writer...unforgettable vividness." (Independent)

"Simenon, a genius. The blue room is psychological space."
Beautifully narrated, this masterpiece by Simenon depicts what guilt truly means. What horrors are in store in common places. Though a tad less of a psychological work than Simenon's other roman novel, Dirty Snow. Without spoiling anything, this one is a grim and gripping tale of a man and his psychology. It's fantastic.
