In this icy noir from a master of American fiction, the darkest secrets are the ones we keep hidden from ourselves. Ben Dibbuk has a good job, an accomplished wife, a bright college-age daughter, and a patient young mistress. Even as he goes through the motions of everyday life, however, inside he feels nothing. The explanation for this emotional void lies in the years he spent as a blacked-out drunk before pulling his life together—years in which he knows he committed acts he doesn't remember. Then a woman from his past turns up at a gala for his wife's new gig at a magazine called Diablerie and makes it clear that she remembers something he doesn't. Their encounter sets wheels in motion that will propel Dibbuk toward new knowledge and perhaps the chance to feel again. With the same erotic force as Killing Johnny Fry but grounded in a far darker vision of human nature, Diablerie is a transfixing new novel from one of our most powerful writers.

    " I love Mosley's consistently tweaked characters... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Arburtha | 2/15/2014

    " This is a very unusual book. The main character is so at odds with himself all the time. He doesn't feel anything for those who care for him yet he does seem to be upset with himself for feeling nothing!! In the end to find out that he really did do the deed and it caused a self awaking was different, not so much the self awaking, but the reason behind it!! "

    " started out as a page-turner and then it...just ended. Such a disappointment for Mr. Mosley. But then again, they can't all be great. "
