Book Description:
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. The story takes us in the dark times of France after the Revolution and in the Terror, and finds its roots in a story of love and power.

Subject: A disappointment
I love the story, the characters and mental imagery. They're all great. But I was almost terminally disappointed to find out that this was only the first part of a multi-part set. Having said that, the readers (with only a couple of exceptions) did an outstanding job. I only wish that the complete suite of Lecoq novels was available in audiobook form.
