really liked it
bookshelves: french-mysteries
Read from April 05 to 06, 2010

Not tightly plotted like an American thriller, but atmospheric and thoughtful, like the best new Euro mysteries such as Fred Vargas and Pierre Magnan. The author is also a painter,and it comes through in his decriptions. You feel like you're traveling to the south of France, the Brittany coast, Algeria, Washington DC. There are occasional sour notes where something doesn't feel or sound right but they're rare and brief. I found the plot believable and the characters seemed like real people to me, for the most part. Worth reading.
