Description

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the detail, I merely found – at times – there to be more details of the setting than the story taking place. What is especially fascinating about reading this book is the amount of specific geography Peter May provides. She is the most recent lover of his fellow investigator Raffin, which provides added tension to an already frayed relationship. Given the combination of the main character's Scottish accent and the frequent use of French in conversation and place names, I felt the latter was well-executed. Enzo Macleod is determined to see if he can succeed where others have failed and, as a result of a possibly rather ill-advised bet, he has 2,000 Euros he can’t afford to lose riding on the outcome.

He introduced blending to the Champagne region, and was the first person to successfully contain local sparkling wine in reinforced glass bottles with Spanish corks. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The brilliant teacher who trained some of Frances best and brightest at the École Nationale d'Administration vanished ten years ago. The readers of Extraordinary People will see the benefits and the role of using forensic science techniques to find answers to unsolved criminal cases.Raffin had a certain style, in his deportment, the clothes he wore, the items he had chosen to furnish his apartment. Enzo proves to be an ace investigator, scientific and intuitive, and, for all his missteps, one who hits his goals including a painful journey toward greater self-awareness. When he discovers the head of Gaillard buried with objects that provide clues for finding the rest of him, Macleod is led on a merry chase all over Paris, including the catacombs. There is also Charlotte, who is the first woman since his second wife to make him feel all gooey inside. The truth is, Macleod could use the money from the bet, and he has another reason to want to come to Paris to work for a while.

But it’s actually a lot more engaging than that probably makes it sound, mainly due to the characters of Enzo himself and his friends and family, particularly his daughter Sophie and her boyfriend, Bertrand.My favourite character by far is Bertrand, written off by Enzo as a suitable suitor for his beloved daughter, because he’s got facial piercings, works in a gym and leaves his metal detector lying around Enzo’s flat, just waiting to be tripped over.

With Sophie, Bertrand and his bouncy, ingenuous assistant Nicole in tow, Enzo travels what seems like almost the length and breath of France following and solving a clever collection of clues. It is farfetched at times but, after a while, I came to accept this and was happy to roll with the tides. This tiny isle off the coast of Brittany is the scene of a murder left shrouded in mystery and grief. Quite a different style from what I have previously read of his, and I would agree with some of the other comments that I have read stating that it had a bit of a Divinci style to. With buried body parts, cryptic clues and a chase around the French countryside, the book is a slightly odd mix of police procedural and Dan Brown-style conspiracy thriller.With the help of an assistant, his daughter and her boyfriend, a girlfriend/psychologist, and a reporter, Enzo travels the width and breadth of France uncovering clues, following false leads and backtracking. He started out his writing career in journalism and won his first award, the Fraser Award, in 1973 when he was only 21 years old. The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk.
