Goat Song by Chantal Pelletier

Goat Song

Chantal Pelletier

For all fans of noir thrillers who also love France; this book doesn't disappoint on any count and also manages to turn some stereotypes on their heads.

Extract

'By the way for your information, do you know what "tragedy" means in Ancient Greek?'
'I didn't even do Latin so it's all Greek to me.'
'Trag-oedia, or tragedy means "goat song".'

Maurice Laice wondered if this false Corsican was talking about him. He'd never set foot in Greece, knew nothing about the tragedies of Sophocles and Euripides, but he certainly stank like an old goat and sang just as badly.
