It s not often you read a detective book where the detectives are spending all their time trying NOT to work, looking for relaxation, really not driven at all Usually the detective is hard bitten with a past that drives him or her to exhaustion before they catch the bad guySo Gilles Sebag, bored detective, family man, parent to teenagers who find him dull, is a surprising treat to read about He s Catalan, in an unusual setting, Perpignan on the French Mediterranean , and the environment ar It s not often you read a detective book where the detectives are spending all their time trying NOT to work, looking for relaxation, really not driven at all Usually the detective is hard bitten with a past that drives him or her to exhaustion before they catch the bad guySo Gilles Sebag, bored detective, family man, parent to teenagers who find him dull, is a surprising treat to read about He s Catalan, in an unusual setting, Perpignan on the French Mediterranean , and the environment around him is as much of a character as he and his colleagues are.So so far this all sounds like a slow, lolling book, filled with middle aged angst, but it isn t The mystery develops quickly and despite himself and his doubts of adequacy, Sebag is pulled into a first rate thriller.I truly enjoyed this book, from the title to the last page Every character is well drawn, and though this is a translation, the slightly awkward phrasing makes the Catalan French distance acute.Maybe it s because I m over 50 and feeling my limitations, too, but every once and awhile I get sick of detectives who are all knowing and street wise and the top of their fields and incapable of self knowledge Muscle men and women They tire me out Whereas Gilles Sebag and I could go into a pub and discuss the finer things in life and I d love every minute
