A charming and mysterious novel, sure to grip the imagination from cover to cover.From the Back Cover:
That's it. No more fending off death threats from rejected authors. No more being the fall guy. Benjamin Malaussène has had it as an editor at the Vendetta Press. Queen Zabo, the Boss, has other ideas. Sales of the best-selling but anonymous author J.L.B. are dropping off. What better way to revive them than by revealing his identity? And who better to impersonate him than Malaussène? But with his baby sister about to marry the 58-year-old head screw of a prison, the manuscript missing, bullets flying and a homicidal maniac on the loose, brilliantly comic mayhem is the order of the day.
