4.0 out of 5 stars I think my copy was incomplete, 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mayhem (Paperback)
I fear my copy of this book had a few chapters missing as the characters did some abrupt scene changes , although the page numbering is correct. Apart from this the book was fantastic. Great characters, wonderful sense of time and place ,and a very clever plot. The protagonists , the inspector from the Surete Jean Louis St Cyr and his colleague Hermann Kohler from the Gestapo, investigate the murder of a young man in the forest near Fontainebleu. They seem to run foul of everybody including the resistance and the SS. The prose is dense , there is a lot going on and you need to keep your wits about you as you try to keep up with what is happening to each of the protagonists. If you want to leave detective lite aside for a while and enjoy a well plotted mystery then this is the book for you. If you are looking for something light and frothy look elsewhere.
