British book set in Cannes
Keen to leave London and his mysterious past behind him, Patrick de Courvoisier has taken up residence on a converted gunboat in Cannes in the south of France. Known by the locals as Le Limier, or ‘The Fixer’, he investigates the problems they don’t want to take to the Police Nationale. When Camille Ager asks Patrick to find her sister, Angele, star of the new movie The Black Pearl,the task turns out to be just as dangerous as the job Patrick has left behind.
As Patrick questions all those involved with the movie, he discovers that this is a case where nothing is as it seems. And when a dead body turns up on his boat, the investigation takes a deeply disturbing new twist.
