At a dinner in Paris, Igor, a man of the theater, meets Jean Grégor, a famous writer. Grégor suggests that they coauthor a book and integrate theatrical and literary elements; the result of this collaboration being The Last Book by Jean Grégor. For Igor, who is going through a difficult time in life, this is a wonderful opportunity and potentially all he needs to get back on track. He accepts this offer but also questions Jean Grégor’s motives. Igor discovers that Grégor intends to « disappear » in the literal meaning of the word. This bit of information revives painful memories for Igor; his father having disappeared out of the blue when he was twelve years old…
Should he consider this coincidence as a sign to set out and search for his father and reveal to Grégor that he knows all about his plan? Jean Gégor disappeared before Igor could even reach a decision…Igor has no choice; a double investigation must follow.
An ongoing-saga, junctions in the road, mishaps and coincidences are found after every corner in this novel by Jean Grégor and subsequently readers are kept on the edge of their seats. The novel is truly an exhilarating and playful read with the combination of the author being mirrored in the text and the stories that run parallel.
