Product description

Product Description

In the run-up to Interpol’s General Assembly, something is truly amiss. The world’s largest international police organisation is heaving with internal strife, petty rivalries, and treachery.

For the Secretary General, re-election is not enough. What he wants is a unanimous victory and he is willing to go to any lengths to secure it. It will not be easy. Not only are others, both inside and outside Interpol, trying to stop his re-election, but some hate him so much that they are plotting his ultimate humiliation. His enemies are legion; that much is clear. What is less clear is who exactly is plotting against him, and which of his many, many transgressions they want revenge for.

As the date of the General Assembly draws near, all parties redouble their efforts to get what they want. The result is chaos. The result is farce. The result is not Interpol’s finest hour.

Intriguing, entertaining and engrossing. Often humourous, but OMG has any truth too it. Read it on a plane, on the way to work or on holidays - the story stays with you.

This was a fun, quick read, full of odious (recognisable) characters. Great plane material.

5.0 out of 5 stars A contemporary farce that reads wonderfully! 3 April 2016
By Jim Napier, mystery & crime fiction reviewer - Published on
Montreal-born crime writer Michael Rose has come forward with a timely tale that manages to shed light on those entrusted with our security and, at the same time, provide us with a much-needed humourous perspective on law enforcement at its highest level.

Things are not going well at Interpol, the world-wide agency charged with coordinating crimebusting efforts around the globe. It seems the recently-installed Interpol headquarters sign has fallen to the ground, narrowly missing a delegation of drunken police officers from Belarus and a member of his own staff. Embarassing all around.

Vain and ambitious, the Secretary-General of Interpol is not amused. Didier Herriot-Dupont (known as DHD – or ADHD by his detractors) is up for re-election, and views such mishaps as threatening to his prospects. His position is being challenged by an American – a woman, no less – and the French powers-that-be have decided that only a Frenchman should head the prestigious body, a view with which he heartily concurs. The situation is complicated by the fact that various national governments have infiltrated Interpol, the better to keep abreast on what their colleagues know and to control events for their own benefit. There is even, in the building, an entire floor set aside for moles. The pervasive suspicion has led inexorably to a culture of discontent, grievances both voiced and not voiced, unfinished projects and abandoned initiatives, charges and recriminations. All in all, Interpol is not a happy ship.

When the Secretary-General’s wife arrives from America, though, things actually take a turn for the worse. She is very much aware that her husband has been unfaithful, and, being a crack shot, arrives sporting a state-of-the-art automatic pistol in her luggage. The Secretary-General, then, is faced with conducting a war on two fronts, a turn of events that defeated both Napoleon and Hitler. Yet another bad omen.

Adding to the Secretary-General's woes, a news crew from CNN is also planning to descend on Interpol with the sole aim of discovering scandal and incompetence. It would seem that Herriot-Dupont is facing an uphill battle for re-election, and as the General Assembly scheduled for Munich draws ever nearer, events move toward an uproarious climax that gives readers renewed hope that something akin to cosmic justice does, in fact, rule world events.

A contemporary, character-driven farce that reads wonderfully, author Michael Rose skillfully draws on his own experience working within Interpol to fashion an entertaining mix of incompetence, scheming, and paranoia that will have readers gripping their sides with laughter (and perhaps dismay). Once this tale hits the streets Rose should expect to find himself dropped from Interpol’s Christmas-card list, but the rest of us owe him a big vote of thanks for a much-needed diversion from the grim news of the day.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sly comic momentum 21 June 2016
By Peter Wilson - Published on
Some laugh out-loud moments and a sly comic momentum that builds and builds!
I bought this book for its insights into Interpol because the author apparently worked there at a senior level so he knows how the organisation ticks.
His portrayal of a CNN crew show that he also knows how modern journalists work but the surprise for me was just how funny the story is.
These characters are crying out to be made into a movie or even a TV series. I started to suspect that the mediocre guy from the IT department was going to end up as the next Secretary-General of Interpol…
5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, witty, and very, very funny 22 February 2016
By Kathleen A. Hackett - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Skillful plotting, well-drawn characters, witty dialogue and meticulously detailed settings make Interpol Confidential a delight. A philandering narcissist Director-General, his betrayed wife and mistress, a feral television crew and an IT guy who mysteriously acquires a career path are just some of the problems faced by Frank Franklin, Assistant Director of Media Relations, as Interpol prepares for its General Assembly in Munich.
