Black Water Lillies by Michel Bussi

Category: Thriller / Mystery

Giverny. During the day, tourists flock to the former home of the famous artist Claude Monet and the gardens where he painted his Water Lilies. But when silence returns, there is a darker side to the peaceful French village.

This is the story of thirteen days that begin with one murder and end with another. Jérôme Morval, a man whose passion for art was matched only by his passion for women, has been found dead in the stream that runs through the gardens. In his pocket is a postcard of Monet’s Water Lilies with the words: Eleven years old. Happy Birthday.

Entangled in the mystery are three women: a young painting prodigy, the seductive village schoolteacher and an old widow who watches over the village from a mill by the stream. All three of them share a secret. But what do they know about the discovery of Jérôme Morval’s corpse? And what is the connection to the mysterious, rumoured painting of Black Water Lilies?

Sarah W finished this book (Nov 2016): ‘I’ll be honest, it took me a while to love this book. After After the Crash, I had VERY high expectations for this book and at first it didn’t meet them. But all of a sudden, I loved it! It is an amazing story and the setting is wonderful. And Oh. My. God. The twist!’
