Summary

Monsieur Lecoq is a captivating mystery, historical and love story: Around 11 o'clock, on the evening of Shrove Sunday 18.., close to the old Barrière d'Italie, frightful cries, coming from Mother Chupin's drinking-shop, are heard by a party of detectives led by Inspector Gévrol. The squad runs up to it. A triple murder has just been committed. The murderer is caught on the premises.Despite Gévrol's opinion that four scoundrels encountered each other in this vile den, that they began to quarrel, that one of them had a revolver and killed the others, Lecoq, a young police agent, suspects a great mystery. In this second book (out of two) we go back in time to that dark period of French history. Little by little, the key to the mystery murder is unveiled.

- Mind-boogling

Fifty-four chapters of back story and M. Lecoqinly appears in the last 2 chapters. Granted, it ties up the loose ends presented in the first part, but I don't think I would have stayed with it in hard copy. The reader (Tony Oliva) does a very good job, especially with French verbiage and different voices. He gets 5 stars. The author weaves a tale going back several generations with more story lines than I'd care to enumerate. If you're dying to know how the hanging threads in the first part of the two and you have plenty of time on your hands (and aren't snowed in as I am...well, almost) it's chewing gum for the mind and can kill some time; no, not SOME time, but a LOT of time. All in all, I've listened to worse readings. Take it for what it's worth.

Good story...not so good readers
