As in her previous novels, Andrée A. Michaud moves outside the framework of the unsolved crime (immaculately constructed though it is) and explores the wider repercussions of the drama. […] With this her 10th novel, her style achieves its most accomplished expression. — Martine Desjardins, L’Actualité
This is a moving rites of passage novel, a persuasive portrait of an era, an effective exploration of psychology and a well-structured detective novel. Switching seamlessly between French and English, Bondrée is characterised by a limpid and poetic language, where attention to detail is matched by an unerring choice of ‘le mot juste’. A triumph. — Josée Lapointe, La Presse
The writing is fiery and inspired. The pace is breathless yet punctuated with familiar scenes of daily life that could be our own. — Le Devoir
Michaud has an undeniable talent for penning riveting and effective thrillers. — Valérie Lessard, Le Droit
The novel flirts with the thriller genre while toying with its rules. — Stanley Péan, Les Libraires
Andrée Michaud is the first woman to win the highly coveted Quais du Polar Prize for Best Crime Novel in French 2017. — 20 Minutes
Brilliantly innovative in narrative and thrillingly readable, Boundary is a splendid novel that makes high literature out of crime and suspense. — Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
While it has an element of the whodunit, this lushly written, award-winning francophone novel is literary crime-writing in which the texture of period and place takes priority. — John Dugdale, Sunday Times
Haunting in its simplicity… Like the wood in the novel, it swallows you up. — The Book Trail
A truly atmospheric and captivating novel… One which slowly and quietly seeps into your consciousness. A book which will, on some level, haunt me for some time to come. — Jen Meds Book Reviews
A spectacular book… Exhilarating. I feel reel enriched and rewarded as a reader from the experience. — Reflections of a Reader
The literary thriller exists and Andrée A. Michaud is the proof. The writing is inspired, the pace is breathless.
A chilling thriller as compulsive as Emma Cline’s The Girls.
From the author of Mirror Lake, which was adapted for the cinema by Érik Canuel (Lac Mystère), this book is a literary crime novel: some sixty short chapters written in impeccable, engaging and exciting prose.
Summer of ‘67. The sun is shining on Boundary Pond, a lake on the border nicknamed Bondrée by Pierre Landry, a Canadian trapper whose place in the distant collective memory will soon pass into legend. Everyone is feeling happy and carefree. Zaza Mulligan and Sissy Morgan are playing with a hula hoop on the warm sand, the children are running around on the beach, and the radio is belting out the hits of the moment to the smell of barbecues. One could almost believe happiness is for real, but then Landry’s traps emerge from the earth, Zaza disappears, and clouds gather in the sky.
