"I don't necessarily have a plan which tells me what will happen"

The enigma of room 622 tells the story story of a certain Joël, successful writer. After a heartache, he decides to take the air in a Swiss palace, Le Verbier. We give him room 623. But in the corridor, mechanically, he looks at the room numbers: 620, 621, 621 bis, and 623. No room 622. Why? He will soon discover that a murder was committed there a few years earlier. The investigation begins. Then, the chapters alternate between the investigation today and the circumstances that preceded the murder. Who is dead ? Mystery.

The writer surprises himself by writing. "I have to find it so I write and I write. As characters are created, born, so I tell myself that it must be one of them but which one? It means that I don't necessarily have a plan that tells me what's going to happen, "says Joël Dicker. "But that doesn't stop me once I go ahead and know what's going on, to go back to the book to make sure everything works. This is important," he notes.

Tribute to its editor Bernard de Fallois

And the exercise is not easy. Because The Enigma of room 622 is a novel with drawers, double and triple intrigue and false leads of course. You need a guide like Joël Dicker to find your way in this labyrinth. A plot that revives the whodunit style, that is, an Agatha Christie-style riddle novel with one murder and several suspects.

A novel which is also a tribute to the publisher who discovered it, Bernard de Fallois, who died in 2018 and who becomes one of the characters in his own right.
