Description


One of Simenon's critically acclaimed roman durs, The Blue Room is a tale of the destructive power of lust and guilt.

"He felt no resentment towards Andree for biting his lip. In the context of their lovemaking, it had its place."

For Tony and Andree, there are no rules when they meet in the blue room at the Hotel des Voyageurs. Their adulterous affair is intoxicating, passionate--and dangerous. Soon it turns into a nightmare from which there can be no escape. Simenon's stylish and sensual psychological thriller weaves a story of cruelty, reckless lust, and relentless guilt.
