Apart from the excellent plotlines and characters, you can learn a lot about the distinctive Catalan region of southern France in this series, which takes place in and around Perpignan. I always feel a major part of good detective fiction is memorable atmosphere, and you certainly get it here. In addition, in this second book in the series, there is a great deal on the final days of the French in Algeria, and attitudes of and towards the 'pieds-noirs' colonists and the infamous OAS. Georget provides nuance and leaves us understanding much more about this highly conflictive history.

Philippe Georget, the author, is a journalist and newsman and has a keen eye for facts and procedures, police procedures. What he hasn't got a handle on yet is action...creating it and describing it. Police procedurals can at times get bogged down, not unlike actual investigations, but readers don't want nor do they have to spend a tedious amount of time in them. The over emphasis on procedures and the unnecessary depth to which he explains the cultural and historical ramifications of the Algerian War were the deal breakers for me. I will read the next book in the Inspector Sebag series and hope for a lighter touch and more action.

Great thriller will keep you engrossed until the last page. Police Procedural with several twists. Plot really comes out of the current situation in the South of France. Giles Sebag is one of the few detectives who is not a loner and has a happy home life but is assailed by doubts. Second book in the series and is getting better, Highly recommended
