Most folks who find themselves pursued by hired killers after witnessing a murder would roll over and give up, but not Georges Gerfaut. Gerfaut is a pretty tough dude, much to his surprise. Three people want him dead? They're welcome to try, if Gerfaut doesn't get them first.

Three to Kill is another slim thriller from Jean-Patrick Manchette (who writes twice as well as most Americans, and at half the length), and it is so much better than Fatale. After Manchette's first book, I was intrigued. After this one, I'm a fan. It's damn near perfect. Check it out.

Daniel Nice, I liked Manchette's "Fatale"--which, by the way, is in a svelte NYRB edition. :)

Jacob Yep, I read it last month. It's good, but this one was better. Highly recommended.
