Product Description

Product Description

Le Havre, 1927. Roger Lavalliac, émérite contre-espion Français, embarque sur la demande expresse de son gouvernement à bord du luxueux paquebot transatlantique S.S ILE-DE-FRANCE, dans le but d'enrayer les pernicieux agissements des contrebandiers, déterminés à acheminer des substances alcoolisées jusqu'à New York, où sévit terriblement la prohibition. Après avoir survécu à un attentat et esquivé les manoeuvres les plus perverses d'un cerveau inconnu et diabolique, Lavalliac acquiert la tragique certitude que des terroristes sont parés à faire sombrer le paquebot de rêve au cours de la traversée inaugurale. Un commandant fort respectable, des grooms serviles, un exubérant banquier Américain, un taciturne secrétaire particulier, une richissime et troublante héritière Britannique... Une épatante galerie de suspects qui ne cessera de tourmenter Lavalliac depuis les appartements de grand luxe jusqu'aux soutes glaciales du paquebot, en passant par la timonerie, les neuf ponts aux corridors laqués, la mirifique salle à manger, le café-terrasse panoramique. Plongez dans un univers feutré, mais rigoureusement délétère, flanqué de redoutables tueurs apprêtés, de messages cryptés, d'individus artificieux, de cargaisons illicites et de combinaisons meurtrières. L'issue fatale pourra-t-elle être évitée ?

More About the Author

"Do you know why you are bad in editorial staff ? It's because you would make a good novelist !" This premonitory sentence of his French teacher, Rémi Lavie has never forgotten it. For a very good reason, at only 22 years old, this Frenchman is already the author of 6 police and detective novels and an English translation. Fascinated by the cinema of glorious years 50-60, firearms, ancient automobiles, ships and technological breakthroughs of the first half of the twentieth century, it is by love for the cinematographic art, that Rémi Lavie writes novels for more than four years. The thriller, the suspense and the espionage are the mainspring of its fascinating and strong narratives. Nostalgic of a period which he did not regrettably know, he likes using the first half of the twentieth century as backcloth for his intrigues. When he describes what he carries achieves, he tells to be "a craftsman of the book who likes to make his readers escape". Drafting his manuscripts in the hand, at the rate of ten hours a day, six ever seven days, before seizing them on computer, he envisages a paper publication if the success is there.

The book is interesting enough but rather over-done. I found the story too far-fetched but it did contain quite a bit of useful nautical vocabulary for students of the French language.
