Product description

Product Description

Welcome to modern-day Saint-Jardé, France. A charming old-world village, nestled in the progress-resisting foothills of the southern French Alps.

When the priest dies under suspicious circumstances, the townspeople suspect the local Don — a Monte Carlo mob boss who has a villa in town. But when the Church sends a mysterious Envoy instead of a new priest, they suspect he’s a Vatican hit-man.

At the center of French Tango is Luc, a troubled 17-year-old who becomes swept up in Saint-Jardé’s chaos, and caught in multiple crosshairs. His goal was simply to make money — now it's simply to survive.

A miracle here. A body there. C’est la vie.

French Tango is an unconventional mystery novel combining wry humor, action, tangled webs of suspicion, and a large cast of interesting characters.

French Tango contains moderate language. U.S. English.

1.0 out of 5 stars Teenaged bloggers might think this is good. 12 March 2016

Incomplete sentences. Page after page of choppy attempts to be clever. And sentences that start with conjunctions. Poor attempts at foreshadowing...but could that change? Maybe. Some day. Punctuation;...Bad.
I try to be supportive of amateur beginner writers, but this book is just terrible. After giving it my best effort for over an hour I simply could not continue reading all the way to the end. Sometimes it's best to be brutally honest. The fellow who wrote this is not an author. Perhaps he could be a blogger. That's where this kind of writing might actually seem intelligent.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent mystery-thriller with an unexpected sense of humor 10 August 2013
By susan barker - Published on

I found everything about this book endearing. It was funny, exciting and the off-beat characters were interesting with human foibles both humorous and engaging—even the bad guys. The story moved well and the exploration of a small village in France took me on an enjoyable journey. The mystery part of the book held my interest through the very last sentence. It felt a bit like a P. D. James novel, but without so much darkness.

Read it! You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different sort of mystery 5 April 2013
By AK Mystery Mom - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a mystery story, but it's wrapped in a quirky cast of characters and set in an odd little town in France. I almost forget about the original mystery as I laughed at the foibles of the locals and visiters and watched the pieces come together,only to have it circle around again. The last paragraph was something I never saw coming. If you want something quirky and different, I recommend French Tango.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shades of My French Heritage 25 February 2013
By Dorothy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Confession: I am Canadian French born in America. My grandparents on both sides were born in Canada and came here in the early 1900's. When my Dad died, my maternal grandmother took care of us while my mother worked.

Some might ask why I put this confession. Here is why. Many of the characters in this book were so accurately French in all ways that I had to chuckle as their ways reminded me of my long ago relatives, how they spoke, their sense of humor and more. Even both priests, the one who dies, and the one at the end who comes to replace him, are accurate, if on different sides of the pole.

As the book description says, this is a novel combining mystery, humor, action, and tangled webs of suspicion. To me, the author manages to do this seamlessly. At one point you would be in suspense for the mystery part, then be laughing at another part, then holding your breath for the action part. Then, when you can finally take a breath, all you can do is say....WOW!

Buy the book folks. You won't be sorry.
5.0 out of 5 stars Witty - a fun read! 30 April 2013

Also, as one reviewer said, quirky and different. The characters seemed very real. I did see three (as I recall) grammatical errors - "you're" instead of "your" but the book is so well written that I attribute those errors to editing. Every time I had to put the book down, I was eager to see what would happen next!
