Editorial Reviews

Review

"With their tight plots, the stories are particularly cinematic, and film-makers are already showing interest. Dard also wrote screenplays and plays. Their revival could be just around the corner." — The Observer 

"No question: for me, he was the greatest." Philippe Geluck

"His language is cutting, his point-of-view original and his verdict uncompromising... One of the few twentieth-century authors to win both critical acclaim and great popularity." - Solidarité Militaire

"The literary descendant of Simenon and Celine." - Le Figaro

"France's most popular post-war author." - L'Express

"searing, dark and economical … Dard … expertly blends glossy thrills, social commentary and escapist lust." — Hits the Fan blog

"Fine, successful and compelling melodramatic crime noir." — International Crime Fiction blog
