After a fight in a seedy bar leaves three men dead, the police arrest a man who claims to be a circus performer. But a young detective named Lecoq suspects the man isn't who he claims to be, and that there is more at stake than meets the eye... Written in 1869, Monsieur Lecoq is not only a thrilling battle of wits between sleuth and suspect, but also the dramatic tale of three powerful families trapped in a web of political intrigue and murder during the troubled times that followed the fall of Napoleon and the restoration of the French Monarchy. Emile Gaboriau, Paul Féval's former secretary, penned here a masterpiece, a novel that is both the suspenseful story of the French Sûreté detective's first case, but also a moving tragedy of greed and revenge. This new, unabridged and uncut edition, was translated by Nina Cooper holds a Ph. D. in contemporary French literature from the University of Texas at Austin.
