Maxim Jakubowski's view...

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.

Synopsis

Affairs of State by Dominique Manotti

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.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
