Goat Song: Murder and Ma. .has been added to your Cart.

Goat Song: Murder and Ma. I was recommended this book after reading "The Mannequin Man" by Luca Di Fulvio which I thought was amazing) The plot of the novel is good, and the end leads you to a surprising (somewhat perplexing) twist. My main problem with this novel though, is the way it is written. I love snarkey, sarcastic characters, but it seems as if Pelletier is incapable of writing a straight sentence. The dialogue between Maurice and his boss is ridiculously tounge-in-cheek.

Pelletier is a wonderful storyteller. She is a master of funny, bittersweet dialogue. A classic roman noir hero, the world weary inspector, is completely reinvented. The naked bodies of a male dancer and a young girl are found entwined backstage in the Moulin Rouge. A junkie is killed, his throat chewed open, the teeth marks human. Seemingly unconnected, these deaths form a sinister pattern involving crack dealers and shady property deals.

One of these authors is Chantal Pelletier, whose Inspector Maurice Laice features in three novels (I believe), only one of which has been translated into English.

Thanks to "Bitter Lemon Press" we have a cnance to learn more about mysteries from all over the world. " Goat Song" is not a book for sensitive and prudish people. It is a full blooded Paris noir. Aging detective ( who,by the way is only 40 and 3 months, but feels ancient)bemoans the city that changes so rapidly. He is plagued with two murders and lingering depression that he treats with serious drinking.
This is a very unusual book, full of irony and schocking details. Not a light, fluffy novel to forget about the daily drudgery. On the contrary daily drudgery would be a welcome escape from this filthy and perverse Paris.

In Montmarte, a double murder occurs in the Moulin Rouge. Gloom and doom French Inspector Maurice "More is Less" Laice and his superior Aline Lefèvre, a positive thinking active lesbian who at times lets her other "head" do her thinking, lead the investigation. The crime scene produces nothing. Thus the two cops turn to the victims seeking who might have a motive to kill the duo.

Lead dancer Manfred and Lisa the trainee are the victims; the culprit intermingled their corpses in some sort of macabre dance. However, outside of the Moulin Rouge, the victims seem to have little in common as Manfred is a purebred native and Lisa is a Corsican emigrant. The case goes nowhere sending the pessimistic Maurice deeper into depression while Aline tells him to find solace in orgasms. Still the two cops argue about life, but keep digging within the Moulin Rouge community and the growing Corsican immigrants flocking to the city.

The key to this strong often amusing and as often gloomy French police procedural is the two cops, as opposite of a pair that readers will ever find. Laice is a fortyish person who at times acts like an ailing octogenarian who no longer can get it up while the promiscuous Aline lives for multiple orgasms with her female partners. At times the depth into the lead couple is so deep and powerful the murder mystery takes a back seat even with the fast-pacing of the plot that like the stars contrast between the upbeat and the downbeat.

I had high expectations of this book when I first saw it on Amazon. (I was recommended this book after reading "The Mannequin Man" by Luca Di Fulvio which I thought was amazing) The plot of the novel is good, and the end leads you to a surprising (somewhat perplexing) twist. My main problem with this novel though, is the way it is written. I love snarkey, sarcastic characters, but it seems as if Pelletier is incapable of writing a straight sentence. The dialogue between Maurice and his boss is ridiculously tounge-in-cheek. It seems like Pelletier is trying too hard and still doesn't accompish the mood she is after. It is very likely that something is lost in the translation, because this was just a bit over the top for me.
