Product description

Review

"Exuberant . . . Maybe crime doesn't pay, but the guile and guts -- and humour -- with which Patience approaches this extreme solution to her desperate situation, right under the noses of law enforcement, is admirable, as are her survival instincts. Readers will be anxious about the fate of the forthright, sympathetic Patience up to the final page. It's no surprise that this novel won the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière, France's most prestigious award for crime fiction." --
Publishers Weekly
STARRED review

"This book is exuberant and understated all at once; an almost stream-of-consciousness calamity of French darkness and humour, it follows a woman with more practicality than passion who sees the world in myriad fascinating ways. It's thrilling to read a crime novel from the point of view of the Bad Guy (and without the usual prologues and asides of a predator's grim thoughts) . . . Translated with spunk by Stephanie Smee, this is absolute champagne entertainment." -- Readings bookstore

Book Description

A taut and darkly funny account of an unusual woman and her voyage into the underground ecosystem of crime and justice in contemporary France.
