Judith adores her life in Switzerland with Abdel and daughter Ninon. But work takes her away for days at a time to Spain, Poland, and other countries that come to mind when she spins her alibi. In reality she’s commuting to France to live the other half of her life with her husband Melvil and their two sons. As Judith moves swiftly from one life to the other, seemingly undetected, threads of her intricate web of lies begin to unravel when her lovers and children start to ask questions. Judith is well-versed in explaining away her whereabouts to keep suspicions at bay, but mysterious dizzy spells appear when she feels the pressure mounting. Conversations and interactions progressively reveal shocking pieces of Judith’s journey to her two parallel lives, which are both wearing thin. A psychological masterpiece, MADELEINE COLLINS is a pure gift of twists and deception, with its heroine dodging—and inventing—truths at every turn. —A.B.
