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

Translated from the French by Alison Anderson


A literary phenomenon
Astrid de Larminat, Figaro
Veers between nostalgia for what could have been and regrets for what can never be. Captivating and beautifully conceived
Pascale Frey, Elle
Once again, Dicker brilliantly combines all the elements that first enticed his legions of readers
Julie Malaure, Le Point
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
Antonio d’Orrico, Corriere della Serra
A titan of a novel. Nabokovian. Highly recommended
Laura Fernández, El Cultural de El Mundo
A new masterstroke from Joël Dicker. The ace up his sleeve
