Louis XVI a remplacé Louis XV et une nouvelle administration se met en place, fort lentement : quant tout le monde est empêtré dans des réseaux claniques, on ne fait pas démissionner le gouvernement comme cela. M. de Saint-Florentin, que personne ne s'est complètement résolu à appeler le duc de La Vrillière, est un de ces ministres glissant sur la pente douce mais savonneuse de la disgrâce. Lorsque soudain l'on retrouve une de ses petites servantes, très salement égorgée dans la cuisine. Il y fa ...more

c'est, malheureusement, le tome que j'ai le moins aimé depuis le début de la série. Jusqu'à présent j'avais toujours passé un excellent moment en compagnie de Nicolas le Floch, mais avec ce tome la lecture a été difficile. J'ai trouvé cette affaire longue et j'ai eu beaucoup de mal à en venir à bout. J'avais vraiment l'impression que cette fois l'auteure passait plus de temps à digresser plutôt qu'à faire avancer l'enquête. Normalement j'adore ces passages décrivant le Paris de l'époque mais là ...more

How about a new (to U.S.) series of mysteries that take place in the twenty years or so before the French Revolution in 1789? Sounds good doesn't it? Our detective is Nicolas Le Floch. The police force is new to Paris and Floch is new to both the police force and Paris.

The Nicholas Le Floch mysteries? Voila! They are terrific. Le Floch like all detectives is an outsider. He's an orphan from Breton where he had worked himself up to the respectable position of a legal clerk. Through the five nove

This book dragged a bit for me, although still am a fan of both the author and the series. I think it was because of the excess of culinary interludes...

Conspiracies abound at the court of young Louis XVI and Police Commissioner Nicolas Le Floch must navigate all these successfully while investigating the mysterious death of a young woman..

Cette nouvelle enqu?te du commissaire Le Floch est fort bien faite et distrayante. Bien-s?r il ne faut pas attendre de ce livre qu'il soit un monument de la litt?rature mais il fait pour distraire et il atteint tout ? fait son but. De plus il permet d'avoir un aper?u de la vie ? Paris au d?but du r?gne de Louis XVI.

Little bit predictable. Also disturbed by apparent error of flottement between l'hôtel St-Florentin et l'hôtel Noblecourt. Would like to be able to give 3.5. NLF AGAIN is attacked at Versaille. But is Ad'A The One ?

I probably liked this book a little less than the other ones in the series, but there were captivating moments...
