Central Park

Alice and Gabriel have no memory of the night before…yet they won’t forget it anytime soon.

New York, 8am.
Alice, a young Parisian cop and Gabriel, American jazz pianist, wake up on a bench in Central park handcuffed to one another.
They don’t know each other and have no memory of having met. The night before, Alice was at a party with her girlfriends on the Champs-Elysées and Gabriel was playing piano in a club in Dublin.

Impossible? And yet…

So many questions leave them confounded. How did they get themselves into such a dangerous situation? Whose blood has stained Alice’s shirt? Why is one bullet missing from her gun?

Alice and Gabriel are left with no choice but to team up to figure out what is happening to them and get back to their normal lives. What they are going to discover will turn their lives upside down.

The finely-executed suspense grips you from the very first pages and will not let go.

Unforgettable characters, blown away by one surprise after another.

An intense, addictive and irresistible read.


“Unpredictable and moving, a psychological thriller that keeps you holding your breath up to the astounding finale”
Jérôme Vermelin, Métro

“Guillaume Musso is a master of theatrics, improbable meetings and plot twists.  The encounter in the middle of Central Park is particularly surprising. (…) You’ll devour it!”
Vincent Parizot, Le Journal inattendu, RTL

“Musso has been subtly drifting toward the thriller in his last few books. With Central Park he has taken a definitive turn toward the world of suspense”
Le Point

“An uncompromising writer, as clever as a fox, Guillaume Musso continues to be our most stunning novelist.”
Le Parisien

“Guillaume Musso succeeds once again in surprising us. (…) Central Park keeps you holding your breath up to the last page. An adventure lasting less than 24 hours, with a few flash-backs and an end as unexpected as our desire to solve the mystery!”
France Info

“Guillaume Musso confirms his true talent as a storyteller.”
TV Mag /Le Figaro
