What You Don't See Could Kill You
In this international bestseller, which is soon to be a major motion picture penned by the screenwriter of Black Swan , the classic procedural meets cutting-edge science
Lucie Henebelle, single mother and beleaguered detective, has just about enough on her plate when she receives a panicked phone call from an ex-lover who has developed a rare disorder after watching an obscure film from the 1950s. With help from the brooding Inspector Franck Sharko, who is exploring the movie's connection to five unearthed corpses at a construction site, Lucie begins to strip away the layers of what may be the most disturbing film ever made. With more lives on the line, Sharko and Lucie struggle to solve this terrifying mystery before it's too late. In a high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled hunt that jumps from France to Canada, Egypt to Rwanda, and beyond, this astonishing page-turner, with cinematic echoes from The Manchurian Candidate and the Bourne series, will keep you guessing until the very end.

"There are some films better left unseen." There are books better left unread. This is one of them.

"This excellent translation of the bestselling French thriller is bound to keep Coma fans fascinated, as a cinephile goes blind while watching a mysterious film from the 1950s."
