Our competition prize today is Black Water Lilies, by Michel Bussi, which is also the Waterstone’s “thriller of the month”.

Giverny is a village in the Upper Normandy region of northern France and is where painter Claude Monet lived and worked from 1883 until his death in 1926.

It is the setting for this latest novel by award-winning French writer Michel Bussi, which is also the “Thriller of the Month” at Lynn’s Waterstone’s.

Jérôme Morval, a man whose passion for art was matched only by his passion for women, has been found dead in the stream that runs through the gardens of Giverny. In his pocket is a postcard of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ with the words: Eleven years old. Happy birthday.

Entangled in the mystery are three women – a young painting prodigy, a seductive schoolteacher and a widow who watches over the village from a mill by the stream. But what do they know about Morval’s corpse?

For your chance of winning a copy of the book, supplied by Waterstone’s of Norfolk Street, Lynn, just answer this question:

Which famous painter lived in Giverny?
