A beautiful evocation of Finnisterre, and in Dupin there is one of the best new fictional French cops. Bravo. Essential reading for lovers of European detective fiction.

You can see just how closely involved with the adaptation John Connelly was/ is. This is a pitch perfect adaptation of the best of the Bosch books. Perfect atmosphere and pacing. Can't wait to see the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb plotting in the best book so far, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Magson's Inspector Lucas Rocco series brilliant depictions of the France of the early 1960s. Rocco, an understated and classy detective, is an interesting moral counterpoint to the chicanery and devious plotting of the government and interior ministry. The mysterious Clos du Lac private sanatorium is the site of a murder that Rocco, despite being warned to steer clear of, cannot withstand the temptation to investigate. The series stands out from a lot of modern detective fiction because of labyrinthine plotting and believable, interesting characterization, and this is the best book of the bunch.

This review is from: Water-Blue Eyes (Kindle Edition)
Lyrical, labyrinthine, clever and beautiful.
Villar's books are sensual and atmospheric, Caldas one of a handful of truly memorable literary detectives.
