Philippe Georget, SUMMERTIME, ALL THE CATS ARE BORED

This is a French mystery.  I don’t often have the opportunity to read contemporary French mystery writers, and sometimes French novels don’t cross the Anglo-Saxon cultural divide very well.  This one, however, is superbly translated and fits nicely into the police procedural category as Inspector Gilles Sebag finds himself playing cat and mouse with a serial killer targeting Dutch women in France.

The plot is intriguing and Sebag is an interesting character to get to know.  One typically French aspect is that Sebag suspects his beautiful wife of having a lover. However, Sebag decides not to pursue the truth when the occasion arises because he knows that his wife loves only him.  Perhaps a more civilized approach?  All things considered this is a story that will capture the interest of a reader regardless of country.
