Publisher's Summary

Sebastian von Eschburg, scion of a wealthy, self-destructive family, survived his disastrous childhood to become a celebrated if controversial artist. He casts a provocative shadow over the Berlin scene; his disturbing photographs and installations show that truth and reality are two distinct things.

When Sebastian is accused of murdering a young woman and the police investigation takes a sinister turn, seasoned lawyer Konrad Biegler agrees to represent him - and hopes to help himself in the process.

But Biegler soon learns that nothing about the case - or the suspect - is what it appears.

The new thriller from the acclaimed author of The Collini Case, The Girl Who Wasn't There is dark, ingenious and irresistibly gripping.

What the Critics Say

"Written in a beautifully understated style that matches his protagonists' detached and rather abstract view of life.... It's an examination of the disconnection between truth and reality that is tantalising and disturbing in equal measure." (Laura Wilson, Guardian)

"Ferdinand von Schirach is one of Europe's most celebrated crime authors.... Well worth reading.... This is a sophisticated novel about a man whose emotional detachment is as chilly as it is destructive." (Joan Smith, Sunday Times)

"Ferdinand von Schirach's prose is elegant and unemotional...gripping and the story is intriguing and often disturbing." (Marcel Berlins, The Times)

"This is an effective riddle of a novel. Details accumulate, tensions build and misdirection abounds, while Anthea Bell's crisp translation accentuates von Schirach's cool, pointillist prose.... Perhaps the only secure verdict the novel delivers is that its author is one of the most distinctive voices in European fiction." (Daily Telegraph)
