In Paris, intellectuals are rock stars. Jean-Jacques Marsay is no exception, prized for his writings and adored for his public appearances. His wife, a beautiful and talented actress, is no less famous. They live a charmed life.
Not so Virginie Desmoulins, found strapped to her bed and drained of her blood. She had been working closely with Marsay, editing his latest book. When last seen alive she was in an expensive restaurant, dining tête-à-tête with his wife. She is the first of their circle to die. Others will follow.
Handling the investigation, Franck Guerin of the Brigade Criminelle unearths a host of hidden truths, becoming the custodian of the couple's secrets. Which ought to worry him. That is the one thing all the victims had in common.
The fifth Franck Guerin novel from David Barrie demonstrates what a dangerous thing the truth can be.
As good or even better than its predecessors. The characters are great and even the minor players come off the page well. It's a series that deserves to be more widely known. --The Bookbag (who chose Tight-Lipped as one of their Top Ten Crime Novels of 2014)
Abounds in elegant Parisian life, and equally elegant Parisian death. Allow yourself to be carried along by the immaculate writing and deft characterisation, and enjoy Paris in the company of someone who clearly knows and loves the city. Crime writing really doesn t get more stylish than this. --Crime Review
