Revenge on the River
When Cédric Bergelet is attacked and injured and his father's large chemical company gets threatening letters it is assumed that someone from the past has his sights set on blackmail or revenge. Sister Blandine is close to the family and therefore takes on a leading role in the investigation to uncover the true identity of the culprit behind further attacks on company employees.
Mr. Bouin has written a lively mystery that is full of biting wit and told from various points of view, giving the reader a look into the minds of each character. The modern style of writing was unexpected. Although I found it jarring at first, this approach did make the characters seem more alive and realistic. The style might not be to everyone's taste but I was drawn in and wanted to know how the mystery would end.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
