Let me put my rating in perspective for you up front I m not a fan of detective fiction It is my least favorite of any genre For some reason, these books consistently annoy the hell out of me so I usually leave them alone However, readers from all over the world are raving about Michel Bussi s After the Crash, using descriptors like extraordinary , richly satisfying , brilliant so I had to read it, right After the Crash is indeed a detective fiction mystery thriller The perspective was interesting as the story is told through the detective s journal entries which offer a generous timeline of approximately eighteen years After reading the book s synopsis, I m sure many will agree that the main storyline sounds pretty interesting, even wild, and it was overall However, for me personally, the flow of the mystery component was a bit too much I felt like I was offered a 5000 piece puzzle on a day I was fiercely PMS ing Yes, that may sound extreme but that s the only way I can adequately describe my reading experience Also, the big mystery reveal was too similar to one I have read before in view spoiler Diane Chamberlain s The Midwife s Confession hide spoiler After The Crash is the trashiest of trashy airport thrillers The plot is preposterous in 1982 a baby is the sole survivor of a French plane crash Problem is, there were two identical looking infants from vastly different families aboard, and nobody can tell who the little girl belongs to The ensuing years see a hotly contested investigation into uncovering the true identity of the unfortunate child.The writing is poor well trodden cliches and laughable implausibilities abound And yet I kept reading Why Well the central mystery may be daft but it is compelling Bussi has a knack of dangling a shiny new clue every time you feel like abandoning ship So I raced to the end to discover the solution and found it unsatisfactory This book is the literary equivalent of a post pub fast food meal seems like a great idea at the time but ultimately leaves you underwhelmed, undernourished and regretting your life choices. Indulge in an interesting story about an unusual dragonfly, a tragic plane crash and its serious consequences.This is certainly a story which constantly deceives you with its web of lies and secrets which makes unexpected twists This is a book that does not allow you to relax for a moment, because only one moment of carelessness is enough to miss what she s heating up for so long Complex characters and action that is becoming and complicated make this book a great read And then comes the end definitely something you will not expect, but what was before your eyes and in a hidden corner of your consciousness all the time You should start this bookish adventure completely unprepared so that the final surprise factor can shine in all its glory. . The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisibleOscar WildeMichel Bussi, a French award winning author, pens his latest crime thriller, Un avion sans elle, that has been translated into English by Sam Taylor and the English title is called, After the Crash The mystery revolves around the identity of the youngest survivor of a plane crash accident among 169 passengers aboard that happened eighteen years ago, and now in the present, the detective, who was assigned to find out the identity of the girl, is now laying down his pen and have finished jotting down each and every clues of this unraveling mystery from every possible angles, is ready to take his last breath by killing himself, when he stumbles upon the last piece of that mystery which stops him from killing himself.Synopsis On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco Swiss border and is engulfed in flames 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly The miraculous sole survivor is a three month old baby girl Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades Is she Lyse Rose or Emilie Eighteen years later, having failed to discover the truth, private detective Credule Grand Duc plans to take his own life, but not before placing an account of his investigation in the girl s hands But, as he sits at his desk about to pull the trigger, he uncovers a secret that changes everything then is killed before he can breathe a word of it to anyone 18 years ago,A planes crashes on Mont Terri that was flying from Istanbul to Paris with 169 passengers aboard The only survivor is a three month old baby girl who just before landing was thrown out of the cockpit and into the snow laden plains of Mont Terri who must have even watched her parents along with other passengers consumed by the fire Soon a fire rescuer rescues her from the wreckage site and is taken to a hospital where after a day or two, her grandfather comes to take her home and claims her name to be Lyse Rose de Carville and on the very same time, another grandfather calls the hospital to know about her health and claims her name to be Emilie Vitral The confused doctor asks both of them to contact the local authorities before claiming her, thereby opening the doors to an eighteen year old unsolved mystery about a three month old baby s real identity Who is she, Lyse Rose or Emilie 18 years later, Credule Grand Duc is the PI hired by Mathilde de Carville, grandmother of Lyse Rose, to find out the baby s identity discreetly But 18 years later, the man is giving up the unsolved mystery and just the moment when he was about to pull the trigger to shoot his brains off, he stumbles upon the very last piece of puzzle that uncovers the girl s identity What did Grand Duc stumbled upon that stopped him from taking his own life Lylie is now 18 lives and studies at University of Paris and on the day of her 18th birthday, she is left with a green notebook which is the journal of Credule Grand Duc, on which the detective have meticulously and intricately laid out his thorough investigation regarding her real identity that the detective have promised right at the end of the journal Reading which made Lylie distance herself from her caring and loving brother, Marc How is he going to take the truth about Lylie s identity whom he loved like a girlfriend all throughout his life Before writing any further thing about this book, I would take a moment to applaud the writer for penning such a mind blowing as well as hypnotic and thoroughly anticipative thriller that goes beyond any words to express my real feelings about this book, where the twists came like a slap out of nowhere on my face and left me with a burning feeling till another twist hit me right on my face.Yes, this proves the author uses his intelligence and smartness to layer this heavily complex psychological as well as crime thriller and make it one hell of a gripping and edgy read for his readers The writing is top class, very layered and the story building is quite structured like a LEGO puzzle, each piece dependent on one another The prose is eloquent and crisp to comprehend with The narrative style is kept engaging and free flowing And just right from the very beginning or right from the epilogue, the readers will feel captivated enough to stay glued to the story till the very last page.The mystery is very enticing enough that will make the readers to keep turning the pages till the very end And the way the author have wrapped and unraveled his mystery with a bit of emotional drama as well as based on the facts makes it a completely nail biting read for crime fiction readers The flaw that I faced while reading this book was that before even halfway through the story, I guessed the mind blowing twist filled climax, I mean, it became very obvious, and I can bet, like me, other readers too will find it easy to guess that last piece of the puzzle, but that doesn t make the book lose it s charm, since there is an almost heart breaking love story that runs on the background of the mystery and each clue towards the truth makes it heavy upon that relationship, that the author have sensitively featured, careful not to irk up the anger among his readers with such an unusual sort of chemistry.The characterization is done strongly, like each and every character is trying to outrun one another with their intriguing and constantly challenging demeanor towards this mystery, which have certainly ruined the minds and hearts of a lot of people The protagonist, Marc, is very calm, calculative and kind as well as determined to finish reading the journal to know about Lylie s identity, while going through each and every piece of puzzle that the detective have pointed out in his journal The other characters, where some are psychologically flawed or left destroyed by this war between two families to claim that little child, are strongly sketched as well as portrayed through the story, that is sure to leave an impressionistic mark after reading the book.The backdrop of the thriller is set in Paris and the author have vividly brought out the Parisian charm and flair through his prose, thus giving the readers a first hand taste of the Parisian environment No the cultural aspect or behavioral aspects of Paris have not been depicted into the storyline, but the location strongly smells of Paree air and with a detailed descriptions of each stations and streets in Paris, will easily transport the readers to this beautiful destination in the world, where beauty is not that significant but the roads and the houses are The detailed descriptions about Mont Terri of Jura Mountains over the French Swiss border plays a pivotal role in the key to this mystery, thus bringing out it s colors as well as the differences between two timelines is very distinct There is also another location, Istanbul in Turkey, that the author have strikingly painted it in his backdrop while spinning the web of twisted mystery in his storyline.In a nutshell, I m really glad that I got to read this book even though the mystery couldn t challenge me give the book a 5 star rating, still, I think it s very interesting as well as enthralling thriller that is surely going to keep the readers glued like a moth to find the light in the middle of darkness.Verdict Must read for all the crime lovers, that evokes the sense and essence of a particular location quite strongly through it s prose Courtesy Thanks to the author s, Michel Bussi, publicist from Hachette, for giving me an opportunity to read and review this book After the Crash by Michel Bussi is a 2016 Hachette publication.Apparently, this book was a huge hit in France a little while back and so has been translated and released in America The premise is certainly interesting A plane crashes, killing everyone on board, save one three month old child The miracle child is claimed by two sets of grandparents one wealthy, one poor A battle over custody of the baby ensues which reaches epic proportions After eighteen long years, the mystery is still unsolved Is the beautiful blue eyed girl Emilie or Lyse Rose To what lengths will the families go to claim the girl as their own Will the girl ever discover her true heritage Once we have a novel compared to or for fans of another super powered author or book This one garnered comparisons to Stieg Larsson and is for fans of You guessed it Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train This is one wild ride of a novel that s for sure, and it held my rapt attention as I watched in shock and horror, the insane battle for control over this child The facts concerning DNA in the early 1980 s is also of great interest, and played a key role in the story These days, it s easy to determine a child s paternity, but back then, the best they could do was eliminate someone I was impressed by the details in this book, and how the author very cleverly added in events or conversations that didn t make sense at the time,or seemed rather benign, but would later become an aha moment So, this author is NOT a panster This book is outlined and plotted very carefully, and it shows However, the twists became a little too far fetched, and the whole thing spiraled out of control, with way too much going on in the second half of the book I love a good plot twist as much as the next person, and I especially love a good gotcha at the end, but the twists must be well timed, and too many of them thrown in for shock value alone, soon becomes tiresome, and loses its power over me I still appreciate a good roller coaster ride now and again, but the cars must stay on the track, or there will be an accident of epic proportions, which nearly happened here The book didn t completely go off the rails, but came awfully close Without saying too much, the whole thing ended up being too over the top for my taste, although I do see why the book has such a mass appeal The puzzle over the Emilie Lyse Rose s true paternity was outstanding and I m still mulling over all the clever details of the mystery It was the other parts of the book involving the detective, the family sagas, and secret love that got out of hand, becoming almost soapy at times That, along with some unstable characterizations, stripped away the stylishness of the novel Overall, this one didn t quite live up to the hype for me, but it was still entertaining enough and worth checking out for yourself The translation, by the way, is very well done, in my opinion 3 stars
