De l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, à Chicago, une femme meurt dans l'incendie de son appartement. Deux ans plus tard, le 31 Juillet 1979, rue de Tolbiac, en plein Paris, un nouveau-né est abandonné dans un kiosque à Journaux. Alors qu'il chiait sur Le Monde et pissait sur L'humanité, un couple le trouva et l'adopta. Il fut appelé : Tolbiac Juillet. Adulte, Tolbiac devient magicien. Ne lui demandez jamais de tour avec des colombes, il les déteste. Quant à son lapin, il n'en a plus. Il l'a bouffé la veille. Mais Tolbiac n’est pas seulement doué pour la prestidigitation, il est aussi un pickpocket de génie. Sa vie bascule tandis qu'il fume une cigarette dans les toilettes d'une piscine. Il n'en sortira jamais. Aspiré par la cuvette. Oui, aspiré ! L'impensable se produit alors. Dans le monde où il émerge, Tolbiac découvre la vie qu’il aurait eue s’il n’avait pas été abandonné.

An unforgettable and unpredictable debut novel of guilt, punishment, and the stories we tell ourselves to survive Noa P. Singleton never spoke a word in her own defense throughout a brief trial that ended with a jury finding her guilty of first-degree murder. Ten years later, having accepted her fate, she sits on death row in a maximum-security penitentiary, just six months away from her execution date. Meanwhile, Marlene Dixon, a high-powered Philadelphia attorney who is also the mother of the woman Noa was imprisoned for killing. She claims to have changed her mind about the death penalty and will do everything in her considerable power to convince the governor to commute Noa's sentence to life in prison, in return for the one thing Noa can trade: her story. Marlene desperately wants to understand the events that led to her daughter’s death—events that only Noa knows of and has never shared. Inextricably linked by murder but with very different goals, Noa and Marlene wrestle with the sentences life itself can impose while they confront the best and worst of what makes us human. Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

Attorney Bartholomew Crane doesn't belong in the small town of Murdoch. And the town of Murdoch doesn't want him there. Even Crane's client, a teacher accused of killing two girls, his own students, doesn't seem to care if Crane gets him off or not. But Bartholomew Crane has come to Murdoch to try his first murder case -- and he intends to win at all costs. That is, until the case takes an unexpected turn. For as Crane begins to piece together a defense for his client, he finds himself being drawn into a bizarre legend at the heart of the town's history -- a legend that is slowly coming alive before his eyes. Unnerved by visions he sees on Murdoch's dark streets, by the ringing of a telephone down the deserted hallway of his hotel, Crane is beginning to suspect that what is happening to him is happening for a reason. And that the two lost girls of Murdoch may be intricately tied to the town's shameful history ... and to a dark episode in his own long-forgotten past. From the Paperback edition.
