Spine-base lightly bumped. 2011 Trade Paperback. viii, 324 pp. Paris, 1924: a city teeming with would-be poets, writers, painters and publishers... the Lost Generation. Hector Lassiter, fledgling author and best friend of Ernest Hemingway, is crossing the Pont Neuf when he hears a body fall into the icy Seine - the first in a string of brutal murders of literary magazine editors that throw a shroud over the City of Light. Frantic to stop the killings, the literati form their own improbable vigilante band: Gertrude Stein gathers the most prominent crime and mystery writers in the city, including Hector and the dark, mysterious mystery novelist Brinke Devlin. Soon, Hector and Brinke are tangled not only under the sheets, but in a web of murders, each more grisly than the next. An amazing (and very smart) montage of mystery, murder, meta-fiction, and literary-history, quite unlike anything I've read before. -Craig HoldenKEYWORDS: CRAIG MCDONALD ONE TRUE SENTENCE FICTION MYSTERY PARIS FRANCE FRENCH
