Skeletons in the Closet by Jean-Patrick Manchette

This newly translated novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette inspired by the works of Dashiell Hammett and Jean-Pierre Melville, perfectly encapsulates the gritty existentialism and cool dialogues widely employed in hard-boiled crime fiction. Skeletons in the Closet follows private eye Eugène Tarpon, who is tasked with solving the seemingly dead-end case of a missing philanthropist. Manchette unfolds for us a gruesome mystery, ripe with corruption and greed, that does not lack either humor or heart.
