Book Description:
Ce roman policier, historique et d'amour, mené de main de maître, en passionnera plus d'un :

Vers onze heures du soir, le dimanche gras de 18.., non loin de l'ancienne barrière d'Italie, des cris effroyables, lancés de la Poivrière, parviennent à la ronde d'agents du service de la sûreté menée par l'inspecteur Gévrol.
Ces hommes accourent. Un triple meurtre vient d'être commis. L'assassin est pris sur le fait.

Contrairement à Gévrol, qui conclut que quatre coquins se sont rencontrés dans ce coupe-gorge, qu'ils se sont pris de querelle, que l’un d’eux avait un revolver et a tué les autres, Lecoq, nouvelle recrue, entrevoit un grand mystère.
La piste trouvée, il ne la lâchera plus. Et vous ?

(par Ezwa)

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.
He will lead his investigation until he gets to the bottom of it. Will you follow him?
