I would have loved to have given this book five stars and I would, had there not been two things bothering me from the start. 1) There are time discrepancies and since I am a reader that pays attention, I get irritated at this. If the main character is told they can not interview someone that is out of town till the 24 July, then stick to that! Readers are not stupid, we do pay attention! 2) In all other novels, there have been information pages about the major event, that is the foundation for the novel one is reading. In this book, the background is the Franco-Prussian war and about when the French turned on their own. Murdering thousands right and left, turning in lovers, neighbours, friends, foes, to the police and them getting executed without trials. Throughout the book, I who am a historian, tried to understand, tried to remember if I have ever heard anything about this nightmare. But I did not get a grip on what was really going on. Yes, the book was written for a French audience that might be well aware of these events, BUT since it's been translated, it would have been nice with a historical review of the events, for us foreigners that have missed this part of history! All the other books have had it so why was it left out this time?

Otherwise, it is a complicated murder mystery. You will have to read it in one sitting or max in two days, so you don't forget ALL the names, because there are lots of them in the book. A man is haunted by his past, he will not forget 1871 and feels that he must deal with his memories to get peace of mind. The year now being 1893. A petty thief, is asked to break in to a jewelry shop and steal cigarette holders, lots of them. Someone sells false stock shares and hands out the cigarette holders, to the investors.

I have read all previous Victor Legris Mystery books and I loved every one of them so I have been extremely excited when this was announced to be released. I have expected to read amazing storyline with gripping plot and of course I wasn't disappointed! The adventures of Victor, Joseph and Kenji continues even though Victor promised Tasha not to pursue his need to be "detective" but when one of his close friends dies, he cannot resist it. The story is really good and I cannot wait for other books to be translated!
