The Reunion by Guillaume Musso
About The Book
The Côte d’Azur – 25 years ago
One freezing night, as her campus is paralyzed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell, the most beautiful and glamorous girl in her prep school, runs away with her philosophy teacher, with whom she has been conducting a secret affair. For Vinca, “love is everything or nothing.”
She will never be seen again.
The Côte d’Azur – Present day
Once inseparable, Manon, Thomas and Maxime — Vinca’s best friends — have not spoken since graduation. They meet again at their reunion. Twenty-five years earlier, under terrible circumstances, the three of them committed a murder and buried the bodyin the gymnasium wall, the same wall that is about to be demolished to make way for an ultramodern new building.
What really happened that long-ago winter night? Now nothing stands in the way of the truth coming out.
A school reunion is never something I go gladly, seeing all the people when I was young and without any type of connection after so many years is not for me! And let’s admit it, after reading this book I am not sure I’ll ever return to one!
The story is told between the past and the present; a young girl escape with her teacher, she was never seen again. Now, the best friends of that girl are reunited again, they murder someone and bury it in a wall at the school they were attending. Now this wall will go down, revealing a truth hidden for a long time. I am not sure neither of them are ready for the truth.
It was interesting reading a story based in France, the story transpires glamour and sadly murder too. But don’t worry; the killer will stay inside the novel and will not hunt you, only it will transport you to your worst school memories.
I loved how the story is told between the past and the present, to connect both worlds and put the reader inside the story. It was not difficult to discover the real killer, there are some clues dropped on the story; but I always love to try to discover the real murder before the ending.
This had been a quick read, I am not sure if it was because I was so invested in the story or because it was so addictive, either way, I finish it in one sit!
