This review is from: La Patience du diable (LITT.GENERALE) (French Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I liked Chattam's early novels as lot, as did most people, but since then he seemed to have lost his way. This novel, however, which is a sort of follow-up to La Conjuration Primitive (although a completely independent novel), plunges our heroine Ludivine, a lieutenant of the gendarmerie, and her colleagues into a potentially interconnected series of terrible crimes, including mass murder on a TGV, bombs exploding in cinemas, acid raining down on people in supermarkets, as well as individual deaths in which people seem to have been literally frightened to death. The existence of evil, and in particular the literal existence of Satan as an agent pulling the strings behind the scenes, is a recurring theme, as is psychiatry. Does the novel flirt with the supernatural, or does everything have a logical explanation? Well, it would be a spoiler to tell you that! Chattam's best for a while in my view, although La Conjuration Primitive is also good. Strangely, it doesn't get such great ratings on amazon.fr, but I liked it.
