Product description

Review

"An entertaining thriller ... A Very Profitable War is also noteworthy because Daeninckx doesn't just think outside the box as far as this fairly well-worn genre goes, he shatters it." --The Complete Review

"The most controversial of contemporary French crime novelists." --The Independent

"One hell of an unflinching look at war and its aftermath." --The Thrilling Detective

Praise for Didier Daeninckx's Murder in Memoriam

"How many detective stories have helped a country confront its past? Murder in Memoriam has certainly done that." --The Guardian

"Serves as a tap on the shoulder--a necessary reminder that what is dead is not buried, and what is buried is, unfortunately, not dead." --Derek Raymond

"Murder in Memoriam is the kind of book that begins to restore one's confidence in the detective story. Not only has Daeninckx produced a particularly intriguing narrative, but he has found a way to give this narrative a satisfying significance. . . A touch of moral vision and a pinch of righteous anger work wonders." --Nick Hornby

"A masterful weave of political history." --Publishers Weekly

About the Author

DIDIER DAENINCKX is France's leading political crime writer. He has written more than forty books, including Murder in Memoriam, also available from Melville House. Also a journalist and author of literary fiction, he won the 2012 Prix Goncourt de la Nouvelle for his short-story collection L'espoire en contrebande.
