A Creepy Book // Book Review

The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau (Georges Gorski #1)The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau by Graeme Macrae Burnet


At its heart, the Disappearance Of Adele Bedeau is a book that explores human psyche. The story starts when Adele Bedeau, a waitress of the restaurant our protagonist frequents to, disappears. Manfred Baumann, our middle-aged protagonist is socially inept, loner & a creature of habit. His tightly controlled life starts to unravel, making him confront his dark past throughout the course of the investigation. At many points I found him to be a little deluded with a wild imagination. On the other side of the spectrum is our police detective, George's Gorski who is investigating the said case. He is haunted by the one case he couldn't solve. The book flips between these two characters for the most part. Their childhood. Their decisions. The consequences.
If you like a thriller because of a plot & clues then don't bother with this book. However, if reading about human psyche interests you, especially if the humans in question are quite um..creepy? give this one a read.

Thank you Bee Books for sending a review copy of the book.
