English down to his oxfords, Sir Edward Destry, head of one of London's most distinguished publishing houses, seems perfectly content to play a quiet supporting role as editor, translator, and publisher of his illustrious authors' great creations. But beneath this carefully constructed facade he is miserable, languishing in envy at the accomplishments of his most successful author and personal friend of thirty years, the dashing French war hero Nicolas Fabry. Handsome, confident, seductive, Fabry is in every respect the opposite of the retiring Sir Edward, and his successes on the Parisian literary stage are a mere shadow of his conquests on the field of love. Fabry's triumphs reach their pinnacle when he publishes a new novel, a work of tragic passion so powerful that no reader is left unmoved. An instant sensation, his novel rockets to the top of the French best-seller list. The country's most prestigious literary prize is his; a Nobel may follow. But when Sir Edward reads his friend's new book, what he finds plunges him into grief and fury. Fabry's fiction is no fiction. Its heroine is modeled on the only woman Sir Edward ever loved, a woman for whose fall from honor and tragic death he had always blamed himself. Now he discovers it was Fabry who seduced and abandoned her, leaving her to a shameful death and Sir Edward to a life of frustrated impotence. With dazzling precision and the passion of a man obsessed, Sir Edward plots his revenge. He translates Fabry's novel into English and devises a plan guaranteed to cause disgrace, ruin, and - death by publication.

display_description Winner of the Grande Prix de Littřature Policir̈e, a darkly comic novel of love, obsession, and revenge set among the literary elite. Sir Edward Destry, the head of a distinguished London publishing house, and French novelist Nicholas Fabry have been friends for more than thirty years. Over time, however, Sir Edward's affection has soured into envy. So when his dashing friend's latest novel becomes a bestseller and garners the prestigious Prix Goncourt, Sir Edward is enraged-especially since Fabry's latest fiction is no fiction. The sensational tale is actually a thinly veiled account of Fabry's affair with Yasmina, the only woman Sir Edward ever loved. Sir Edward had always blamed himself for Yasmina's tragic suicide, never realizing it was Fabry's seduction and abandonment that had driven her to take her own life. While Fabry is feted by the French literary world, Sir Edward plots his revenge. With precision and passion, he devises a plan guaranteed to cause disgrace, ruin-and death by publication.
