Marc Levy

 (born 16 October 1961) is a French novelist.
 Marc Levy is the most-read French author in the world.
Levy was born in Boulogne-BillancourtHauts-de-Seine. At the age of 18, he joined the French Red Cross where he spent six years. In parallel, he studied management and computers at Paris-Dauphine University.
In 1983, he created a company specializing in computer graphics in France and the United States. In 1989, he lost majority control of the group and resigned, starting again from scratch. He then co-founded an interior design and construction company with two friends; the company would become one of the first office architecture firms in France.
When he was thirty-seven, Marc Levy wrote a story for the man that his son would grow up to be. His sister, a screenwriter, encouraged him to send the manuscript to Editions Robert Laffont, who immediately decided to publish If Only it Were True. In 1999, after selling the film rights to Steven Spielberg for Dreamworks, he left his architectural firm to dedicate himself to writing.

"STRONGER THAN FEAR (UN SENTIMENT PLUS FORT QUE LA PEUR)"

..A plane crashed on snowy Mont Blanc, Suzie Baker finds the document that could do justice to her family accused of high treason. But this compromising discovery puts on alert U.S. intelligence. 
Andrew Stilman,a New York Times reporter, joins fascinating and enigmatic Suzie Baker,to follow an investigation who can kill both of them and make them vanish into the blue. Therefore, Suzie and Andrew must avoid traps and foil the plans, risking to reveal one of the most closely guarded secrets of our time. Compelling characters, suspense well dosed ... With this new novel, Marc Levy imagines the story of an astonishing modernity.
Marc Levy did his homework well because the most intresting part is that the investigation and that "guarded secret" from the book,is a true fact from the real world,about misplaced documents,and a hidden war between the great powers of the world to conquer territories and their resources..but enough said,I'll let you discover and enjoy this masterpiece!
