With the help of her new assistant Claude, Claire follows the clues, finding possible leads to Paul's fate in other cases - a long-ago missing girl and a modern-day miniature horse theft in Marin. As visions of the past reveal the secrets of the present, Claire begins to understand the words of the enigmatic French detective Jacques Silette: 'The detective won't know what he is capable of until he encounters a mystery that pierces his own heart.'Just as City of the Dead was acclaimed for its unique heroine and powerful atmosphere - 'mesmeric ... unlike any other crime novel you'll read this year' (Guardian) and 'the most unusual , intelligent thriller I've read for years (Sophie Hannah) -Claire DeWitt and The Bohemian Highway is an extraordinarily powerful and moving mystery novel from a rare talent.
