After the Crash by Michel Bussi

Published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson for £7.99

In December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco Swiss border.  A three month old baby girl is the sole survivior.  Two families claim she is theirs.  In the days before DNA and with all physical evidence destroyed, how can anyone decide?  Two decades later, detective Credule Grand Duc makes a discovery which could change everything and sets about finding the answer.  Bussi is a master at the art of dropping clues into the narrative which raise more and more questions.  Full of twists and turns, constantly evolving, this fast paced intriguing mystery keeps you guessing to the last.
