We don't learn much about the incident that made him leave the city, but there's no need to. Forêt desperately wishes to leave the past where it was, and that's the way it should be.
But even if not much ever happens in Messandrierre, something seems to be wrong as young people suddenly start to vanish. Forêt, starts investigating the disappearance of a young man and before he knows it, he has 5 or 6 more missing people in his hands. And they might turn out to be dead people. Add to this that one of the suspects is the woman he loves and you have a great thriller in your hands.
There are many twists and turns before the book ends and we discover the killer. The author keeps us guessing throughout the book what is going to happen next.
If, like me, you are a fan of great detective stories, do yourself a favor and pick up this book, it's that good!
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
Not unlike Armand Gamache, we meet police officer Jacques Forêt, after some crisis. Something happened while he was working in Paris, he was wounded, plus he recently lost his mother. So he is now down South in Les Cévennes, trying to recover, working in a much quieter environment, this small village of Messandrierre. You’ve got the usual stuff of disputes about property lines (this is a must in small French villages, believe my own experience!), between farmers, and the occasional driver not renewing his car tax.
But when tourists start getting missing, things get not as rosy. And the villagers suddenly seem to have too many secrets for comfort (again, like the inhabitants of Three Pines). It does not make his investigation easy.
To complicate Jacques’s life, a former close relationship, Beth, comes back to the village without even informing him. She is nervous and seems also to hide too many things: wasn’t she the last person to talk to one of the tourists who disappeared? And what really happened to her husband who died recently? Could there be a face of Beth’s Jacques had not known about?
I really enjoyed the village setting, so well evoked, with its inhabitants and relationships. There’s a superb passage on whispers and rumors in the village that perfectly illustrates that. And you have got the inevitable café, the hub of the place. The Fête de la Saint Jean reminded me of many wonderful parties, and village dancing.
The plot gets more and more complex, also with several flashbacks to different periods.Read more ›
