3.0 out of 5 stars well plotted and well paced detective story, 15 Oct 2013
This review is from: Summertime All the Cats are Bored (World Noir) (Paperback)
This book delivers what is promised on the dust jacket: an entertaining, well plotted and well paced reading experienced - an unusual serial killer is on the loose in Perpignan and is being tracked by a team of detectives. The detective on whom we focus most is happily married but is surprised to find out that he has unsuspected difficulties in his relationship with his wife - and has been suffering the career consequences of a move to part-time working some years previously when he first had children.

A real sense of Perpignan is delivered - the place and the culture. And alongside this a credible characterisation of the lead detective and his life - and perhaps also of the serial killer (though it's hard to know for sure without having studied the subject). We get a sense of the office politics of Perpignan police life; the plot moves at sufficient pace and in directions that the reader doesn't always anticipate. So: an enjoyable reading experience.
