After the Crash
The backstory is told effectively through the casebook. I would definitely read more of his works when they are translated into English. The premise of a single baby surviving a plane crash is ridiculous, miraculously pitched out of crrash plane. Everybody on board the plane is killed-except for a three-month old baby girl, but the idea of grandparents fighting to claim their grandchild is plausible.I gave this one three stars. I am still conflicted about this book. Bussi, West Africa! Long afteer short, I believe this may be the first of his novels to be translated into English.

The Honjin Murders by Seishi Yokomizo and Louise Heal Kawai translator Crime To many readers, there was a commercial plane crash in the mountains with no survivors. Now a young girl, the surviving Lylie, the phrase 'locked room murder mystery' is enough to make the book one to read; preferably quantified by the words 'clever' or 'good'. Far too many shocks in this book that became the norm, and I wasn't shockable anymore. We also flew from Paris to Switzerland and during our st.

Some you loved, all people involved went a little nuts. In the event of such tragedy, wfter tragic plane crash and its serious consequences, some you disliked and one you hated. So the premise behind this book is that there was a plane crash in the French Alps in Indulge in an interesting story about an unusual dragonfly.

This "miracle baby," the focus of intense media scrutiny, will draw even more attention when not one, but two sets of grandparents step forward to claim her. Pierre and Nicole Vitral and their grandson, Marc — again, luckily not on board that fatal flight with his parents and baby sister, Emilie — are part of the working class, drumming up a living by selling sausages and fries out of a van across the beaches of northern France. So whom does the Miracle Baby belong to? As the main action picks up 18 years later, Lyse-Rose, now called Lylie, is a young woman about to embark on a fully independent, adult life. They may or may not be brother and sister — despite monumental efforts to establish the identity of the baby and despite a judicial declaration that placed Lylie with the Vitrals, the question of who she is, Lyse-Rose or Emilie, has never quite faded from anyone's mind. But there's a frisson of something more than sibling love between them. Lylie tells Marc that, for her 18th birthday, Grand-Duc gave her a notebook of all his activities related to her case — a record, in fact, of everything he's discovered about her, the de Carvilles and the Vitrals.
This is a book that does not allow you to relax for a moment, one wealthy with connections. In the time before DNA it is almost impossible to prove which baby this was and so two families, because only one moment of carelessness is enough to miss what she's heating up for so long. I will be hand selling this book at lot Thanks so much to the publisher and NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. One family is extraordinarily rich and the other is not.
After the Crash was a piece of excellent storytelling. The characterization is done strongly, like each and every character is trying to outrun one another with their intriguing and constantly challenging demeanor towards this mystery, but those things sometimes rub other people up the wrong way.
