A man wanders the streets of Paris haunted by the memory of a young woman’s bloodied corpse and tormented by the possibility that he was her murderer.

He rushes home, but his wife recoils from him, the neighbourhood he loves is violently hostile and when he looks in the mirror, he sees nothing. Terrified by the world in which he finds himself and pursued by secret police, he has no choice but to flee.

Chilling and uncomfortably timely, Noir is an electrifying novel about political responsibility and moral choice.
