Product description


"The Dying Minutes is a tense and thrilling read, and one that had me on the edge of my seat all the way through" (Bookbag)

"Crime writing is like the contents of a wine cellar. Some bottles are best saved for cleaning the bicycle chain. And then there are bottles like Chateau Lafite which are so exquisite that within a few sips, one is torn between devouring the bottle whole or putting it in a handcrafted leather carafe and sitting back and admiring it. The Dying Minutes by Martin O’Brien is a Chateau Lafite novel: this is high-end, literary crime.... The Dying Minutes perfectly fits the market for the very literary, well-crafted and beautifully written novel" (It's a Crime UK)

"In terse prose, O’Brien enshrouds the warm and sunny location with darkness, prefiguring harsh revenge and some brutal violence" (Herald)

"I found this a very unusual police procedural, very evocative of the enticing French way of life - you could almost taste the hot buttered croissants and smell the French black coffee on every page - which makes this English author particularly original. I will certainly look out for more stories by Martin O'Brien in the future. Well Recommended" (Eurocrime)

"Terrific" (Northampton Chronicle and Echo)

Book Description

The seventh Inspector Daniel Jacquot novel is set once again in Marseilles, the city about which Martin O'Brien writes so seductively. When an old friend dies and leaves Jacquot a fishing boat, all kinds of secrets and crimes come back to haunt him.
