Helpful Hints


Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot has been enjoying the quiet life in a peaceful Proven�al village. A former rugby international, who once scored the winning try against England at Twickenham, Jacquot sports a trademark ponytail and loves food, wine - and one woman, artist Claudine. Now, however, he must leave her to go to Paris, where Marseilles Magistrate, Solange Bonnefoy's niece has been abducted. As the trail of violence and corruption leads Jacquot back to the ancient seaport, with its bloody history of slave trafficking, another utterly shocking and unexpected murder sets the investigation galloping in a wholly new direction and Jacquot has to go undercover.

I am just discovering Martin O'Brien's "Inspecteur Jacquot" and enjoy the fast paced thrillers! Very well written,with lots of twists and turns,up to date and relevant...with a little romance thrown in! It also helps that I know the area, so I enjoy revisiting vicariously,thru Daniel and the many characters,this lovely part of the World! My only dismay is the lack of proof reading (for the French ) I am a fully bilingual French Canadian and cringe every time I encounter direct translations or misuse of articles(eg:Le mort du port-should read LA mort du port!) Please find someone bilingual to lend authenticity to an otherwise exciting series!
