Le Livre des Baltimore by Joel DickerJusqu’au jour du Drame, il y avait deux familles Goldman. Les Goldman-de-Baltimore et les Goldman-de-Montclair.
Les Goldman-de-Montclair, dont est issu Marcus Goldman, l’auteur de La Verite sur l’Affaire Harry Quebert, sont une famille de la classe moyenne, habitant une petite maison a Montclair, dans le New Jersey. Les Goldman-de-Baltimore sont une famille prospere a qui tout sourit, vivant dans une luxueuse maison d’une banlieue riche de Baltimore, a qui Marcus vouait une admiration sans borne.
Huit ans apres le Drame, c’est l’histoire de sa famille que Marcus Goldman decide cette fois de raconter, lorsqu’en fevrier 2012, il quitte l’hiver new-yorkais pour la chaleur tropicale de Boca Raton, en Floride, ou il vient s’atteler a son prochain roman.
Au gre des souvenirs de sa jeunesse, Marcus revient sur la vie et le destin des Goldman-de-Baltimore et la fascination qu’il eprouva jadis pour cette famille de l’Amerique huppee, entre les vacances a Miami, la maison de vacances dans les Hamptons et les frasques dans les ecoles privees. Mais les annees passent et le vernis des Baltimore s’effrite a mesure que le Drame se profile. Jusqu’au jour ou tout bascule. Et cette question qui hante Marcus depuis : qu’est-il vraiment arrive aux Goldman-de-Baltimore ?

The Sydney Morning Herald
Three brilliant young men from different branches of a Jewish family all have dazzling futures until their close world collapses amid lies, jealousy and betrayal. John Cleal is a former soldier and journalist with an interest in medieval history. Now writer Marcus Goldman is back, but this is a very different type of story. A sort of prequel and sequel to his debut, it does not go into any great detail about its predecessor and is a perfectly satisfactory standalone. Although it covers much of the same ground about how Marcus became a writer and how he crafts his books, there is something much darker about this titanic family saga which covers almost half a century. It is a tale of three brilliant young men, all with apparently dazzling futures, before their very American dreams of success and lifelong brotherhood collapse in a welter of lies, jealousy and betrayal.
After a month of being completely cut-off from reading and blogging The Baltimore Boys was the perfect first book to start my summer filled with amazing to-be-read books. I have been reading it for a while but in the last 2 days I have completely devoured every word of it. I will note that this book can be read as a standalone. I have to say that I loved reading this book so much! I was invested in the story and followed every single one of the happenings — I gasped, I rolled my eyes, I felt sad. I have to compliment the way Dicker crafted the characters of Woody and Hillel as well as other characters because I loved the way they came into each others lives and it made them more real.
