A new translation of Simenon’s gripping novel about lives transformed by deceit and the destructive power of lust. Translated by Eileen Room.
It was all real: himself, the room, Andrée still lying on the ravaged bed.
For Tony and Andrée, there are no rules when they meet in the blue room at the Hôtel des Voyageurs. Their adulterous affair is intoxicating, passionate – and dangerous. Soon it turns into a nightmare from which there can be no escape. Simenon’s stylish and sensual psychological thriller weaves a story of cruelty, reckless lust and relentless guilt.
