"Allison Pagone est allongée en pyjama dans la baignoire, immobile. Le pistolet qui pend de sa main gauche est mollement appuyé contre sa poitrine. Derrière sa tête, qui s'incline sur son buste, le mur carrelé est éclaboussé de rouge." La romancière à succès Allison Pagone est retrouvée morte chez elle. Elle était sur le point d'être arrêtée pour le meurtre de son amant, la police la harcelait... Tout laisse à penser qu'elle s'est suicidée. Et si ce que vous venez de lire n'était pas le début de l'histoire, mais sa conclusion ? Si, comme Allison, vous aviez été trompé et manipulé ? Si tout le monde vous mentait ? Entrez dans "La comédie des menteurs", c'est accepter de se faire berner de A à Z. Ou plutôt de Z à A puisque tout commence par la fin !

The blue tango by Eoin McNamee( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
At 2.20am in the morning of the 13th November 1952 the body of 19 year old Patricia Curran was carried into the surgery belonging to the family doctor. At first Dr Kenneth Wilson thought she had been the victim of an accidental shooting. In fact a subsequent post-mortem revealed that she had been stabbed thirty seven times.' Eoin McNamee's wonderful novel, which is based on one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in recent history, is at once a gripping thriller and a danse macabre through a shadowy world of corruption and sexual intrigue - a darkly lyric narrative of white mischief in post-war Ireland, of false accusation and savage murder, presided over by the haunted, tragic figure of Patricia Curran
