      Chilly tale about a promiscuous, inarticulate, amoral, drop dead gorgeous girl who doesn t flinch at the prospect of fucking and killing every man she meets, all held under the phony guise of vindicating a terrible injustice done to her mother Needless to say she s also schizo and throws fits periodically, just like Megan Fox on a bad day Nobody does erotic noir noirotica better than the French, and this is as sexy and deadly as it gets.

      I ve been rereading all of Japrisot again and L ete meurtrier is my favorite The narrative is layered, being told by four different characters, each one adding their own different perspective For first time readers it takes nearly half the book understand exactly where it s going but it s sure fun and suspenseful getting there The ending has many surprises for both the main characters, Elle and Pin Pon, and of course for the reader A great book which also gives a taste village life in 1976 Prove [...]

      ONE DEADLY SUMMER 1977 Sebastien Japrisot 1 2.Just to get a few things out of the way the name Sebastien Japrisot is an anagram of the author s real name, Jean Baptiste Rossi I don t know why he did that He was a Frenchman, and, in his day, was one of the most popular writers around Aside from writing several very successful novels, he was active in the world of film All of his books were turned into feature films My favorite was, The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun This novel was a littl [...]

      What a superb novel this is Set in Alpes Maritimes in France in the 1970s it is a story of lust and revenge which leads the reader through a gamut of thoughts and emotions and fools him or her at every turn Japrisot allows his story to be told through the mouths of the protagonists and signposts them as Executioner , Victim , Witness etc He tells no lies but allows us to fall into the same traps as the participants of the events which follow This is really the story of two deadly summers, not on [...]

      While reading the book, I didn t really know what to feel It was so complicated at times, and the perspective switches made it very hard to move on However, they were necessary to understand the entire story At times, I ve held my breath, thinking NO, that can t be it Horrible things happened, strange people were represented, which made it rather hard to empathise with them, especially with Elle.If it wasn t for school, I would ve never read this book, but it is one of the better works we ve had [...]

      I ve read quite a few novels in French this will be the 24th review of a book in French that I ve done for , and I don t think I ve read one yet that I ve found as engaging as L t meurtrier It s the sort of book that occupies your mind when you re not reading it, so the appetite to read is constantly renewed The novel is set in the 1970s The characters are salty, self reliant, small town people of the Alpes Maritime region the hinterland of Nice and Marseille The entire novel is written in the [...]

    11. Laura on said:

      This is one of Sebastian Japrisot s books that I had never read before While I enjoyed the book, it s definitely not one of his strongest The mystery is intriguing and I really wanted to find out what was going to happen, and there was a very good twist in the end, but I felt like it dragged a bit in places.I liked the different perspectives that you got to read throughout the book and it was interesting to see the events unfold from each person s point of view I liked that Japrisot made Elle sl [...]

      My first French Mystery writer actually knowing it and I was surprised feelings,not looking for overkill,not running from reading fatigue,only looking for another good journalistic soul,while having a little enjoyment reading hopefully a good worthwhile mystery a pleasant surprise this is my first of his books so I ll reserve further comment until further books need I say ref.Patricia Cornwell Jonathen Kellerman

    13. Lil' Grogan on said:

      Damn, that s some good story weaving Clueless boy gets roped in by femme fatale but what an interesting situation to plop them in Liked the use of multiple first person narrators and the change of focus each brought I think that allowed me to appreciate the timing of Rossi s story telling Close to an awesome book except Elle was a tad bit over developed in the lurid zone for me.

    14. Lavinia on said:

      Very nicely built, the story unveils itself gradually only to the beauty of the grand finale surprise Well defined and mesmerizing characters I was lucky enough to read it in French, the language is a pleasure to read, especially for Elle at least to the degree to which me, as a non native speaker, I can catch it Great recommendation, very happy I got to read it.

      Grabs your attention from the start A bit confusing for several pages, but the you read the you are getting involved in a story The characters are so realistic Sad, dark story, excellent in my opinion.

    16. Sacapsie on said:

      This took me way longer to read than it should have, considering how vapid the book is It buries you in an endless torrent of irrelevant detail, and all the characters are neither likeable nor intelligent enough to care about No reason to waste your time on this one.

    17. Heather on said:

      A fascinating and compelling tale of attraction, deception, sex and revenge.

    18. Ivan on said:
