The day of the tragedy. The end of a brotherhood.

The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. That was what they called Marcus Goldman and his cousins Woody and Hillel. Three brilliant young men with dazzling futures ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years, Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the true and astonishing story of the Baltimore Boys.

The stunning new novel from the author of the global bestseller, The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair

Joël Dicker really knows how to tell a great story
— Stéphanie des Horts, Valeurs Actuelles
The Dicker who wrote The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair was a magician, a juggler. The Dicker of The Baltimore Boys has no need of such tricks. He is not just a good writer, he is a great writer

A titan of a novel. Nabokovian. Highly recommended
