A riveting novel of political intrigue, set on the Left Bank of Paris

From France's leading political crime writer comes a novel that delves into the country's radical political movements on both the left and the right, in the wake of a brutal attack.

When Andre Sloga, an apparently washed-up novelist with a history of baiting the system, is assaulted and left for dead in the basement of his apartment building, the freelance private eye Gabriel Lecouvreur takes on the case. The police consider it a robbery gone wrong, but Lecouvreur, a great reader who admires Sloga's books, thinks the matter runs deeper than that.

And as he looks into it further, he discovers that Sloga had not in fact quit writing after he was dropped by his prestigious publishing house for his increasingly provocative novels. Instead, Sloga was at work on an explosive book that had led him into extremist political circles ... until someone put a stop to it.

Steeped in the real Paris, where graffiti, squats, and skinheads dominate the streets, Didier Daeninckx's Nazis in the Metro is a vivid portrait of a side of the city few foreigners see, wrapped in an utterly gripping mystery.
