Alex Uno de los mejores libros del ano segun el Financial Times, ganador del Premio de Lectores de Novela Negra de Livre de Poche, ganador del Premio Goncourt, del Dagger Award y del Premio de Novela Negra Europea, con mas de medio millon de lectores en Europa. Han pasado varios anos desde el caso del asesino en serie que trastoco para siempre su vida, y el comandante Camille Verhoeven aun no se ha repuesto del todo cuando un nuevo desafio vuelve a implicarlo personal y profesionalmente: Alex, una mujer de treinta anos, ha desaparecido. Cada minuto que pasa puede ser el ultimo. Y el no se lo perdonaria nunca. El autor de Vestido de novia e Irene vuelve a sacudirnos con este thriller escalofriante, una trama diabolica e imprevisible que le confirma como el rey de la novela negra. Alex catapulto a Lemaitre a la fama internacional, al ser aclamado como el sucesor de Stieg Larsson, hoy su estilo es reconocido como unico e inconfundible, con una legion de seguidores. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Upon winning the prestigious 2013 Crime Writers Association International Dagger Award, the judges praised Alex by saying, "An original and absorbing ability to leash incredulity in the name of the fictional contract between author and reader... A police procedural, a thriller against time, a race between hunted and hunter, and a whydunnit, written from multiple points of view that explore several apparently parallel stories which finally meet." Alex Prevost--kidnapped, savagely beaten, suspended from the ceiling of an abandoned warehouse in a tiny wooden cage--is running out of time. Her abductor appears to want only to watch her die. Will hunger, thirst, or the rats get her first? Apart from a shaky eyewitness report of the abduction, Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven has nothing to go on: no suspect, no leads, and no family or friends anxious to find a missing loved one. The diminutive and brilliant detective knows from bitter experience the urgency of finding the missing woman as quickly as possible--but first he must understand more about her. As he uncovers the details of the young woman's singular history, Camille is forced to acknowledge that the person he seeks is no ordinary victim. She is beautiful, yes, but also extremely tough and resourceful. Before long, saving Alex's life will be the least of Commandant Verhoeven's considerable challenges.
