LoveReading View on Affairs of State

A past winner of Crime Writers' Association International Dagger, French author Manotti's crime books invariably focus on the injustice in contemporary society and the corruption that ensues. Her latest novel to be translated is a tale of intrigue and corruption and begins with the death of a call-girl and the disappearance of a plane between Paris and Iran. All threads lead rookie investigator Noria, to a hot bed of racism and intrigue. Gritty and never less than unputdownable.

Affairs of State Synopsis

A call-girl whose black book lists her elite international clients is found murdered, a mysterious plane bound for Iran disappears over Turkey - and the president's closest advisor, Bonard, is manipulating the system with consummate ease. It's up to rookie advisor Noria Ghozali to untangle the threads which bind these events together - and to combat the racism which repeatedly stalls her efforts.
