Watch out. I bought the same book twice under different titles. I did enjoy reading the book the first time.

The political power thread made it more interesting than just a pure revenge crime mystery. Louis Morgan is a cleverly conceived, reluctant sleuth.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will read the other Louis Morgon novels. It reminds me of the Louise Penny Inspector Gamache novels - set in a small, French-speaking town. I really like the writing, the descriptions of people and places, as well as the slow, thoughtful pace and style.

Since I discovered the Louis Morgon series, I have been unable to put them down! Have now read all three - and am awaiting more. If you enjoy an adventure story and love to read about France, these books are for you.
Thank you Peter Steiner.

The title, like his other book L'Assissin, sounds fancy but doesn't really relate to the plot. Like his other book, parts of fascinating and I enjoyed the European setting. But parts seemed over the top.

Peter Steiner gave a talk at the Litchfeld, CT public library last year and a lot of us purchased his books. It appears that he made a name for himself as a cartoonist for the New Yorker. My advice is, Peter, keep your day job.

The actual fiction in this book is very thin on the ground. It's basically a short story but no one pays fifteen bucks for a short story so he bulked it up with what amounts to a travelogue through the French countryside. If the travelogue had anything to do with the story the reader might cut him some slack but it's entirely irrelevant to the story. Oh, and calling it a story is being generous. This would get a "C" at best at Litchfield High School.

I think what happened here...actually, I'm sure it's what happened is this. Mr. Steiner wanted to take a ramble in France but wanted the trip to be subsidized. So he kept his expense receipts and puts them against the revenues from the book to reduce his taxable income on the royalties. There's no problem with that; it's America. But when someone buys a book that has "A Thriller" on the cover they expect to get a novel, not a shoebox full of expense receipts. It's more than a little misleading; it's...you got it, le crime!

I hesitate to describe a serious, really good thriller as "lovely," but in fact that's the word that comes to mind. Perhaps it's the French setting, so affectionately described, perhaps it's the long meditations on conspiracies at the highest level of government. Something, however, slows the rough and tumble pace of your typical spy thriller without losing intensity or engagement. This is not a story that hangs at the endue of cliff or features an intrepid hero rushing stupidly towards disaster after disaster. There isn't much in the way of violence, on stage. Louis Morgon, once a wunderkind in the spy world, is now an old man--well not so very old--but definitely in retirement, come to a tiny village in France after being summarily dismissed from his job at State, where he can't resist taking up a paintbrush to make landscapes. Then one beautiful morning, Louis carries his breakfast out on the terrace to eat while admiring the field of blooming sunflowers and stumbles on the body of a dead man sprawled across his doorstep. Somehow Louis is certain that this surprise delivery is connected with a past he believed he'd left far behind. This is the first in a series of spy thrillers and probably ought be read first, as Steiner spends much effort introducing us to Louis, his old colleagues, his estranged family, and his new French village friends. Highly recommended.
