This review is from: The Widow Lerouge (Kindle Edition)
The mark of a good author is the readers desire to keep turning the page until reaching the end. Emile Gaboriau has a formula in his plots and although there is no difficulty in working out the villains and outcome, I totally enjoy the journey getting there. M. Leqoc does not feature greatly in this novel and you will be disappointed if expecting to read his exploits but it does not detract from being a very enjoyable read which with the other books written by this author give a realistic idea of life in France in the 19th century.
