Vertigo by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac

Pierre Boileau
Thomas Narcejac
1956, 1997, Bloomsbury, London

Set in France, Vertigo revolves around two men and a woman. Gevigne hires Flavieres to follow his wife Madeline who he feels is in danger of committing suicide after her great-great-grandmother committed suicide at the same age.

A real psychological story - a bit of a slow-burn thriller which really picks up the pace in the last few pages. And a twist I, for once, didn't see coming.
