The Mule

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
Jacky is a translator. He’s a bit of an
eccentric. And he can’t quite understand why the alluring and beautiful girl at
the bar wants to talk to him.

Even more perplexing is the tattered book
she carries with her but won’t let him touch. Written in an indecipherable
language—even for him—it contains, quite impossibly, what appear to be
photographs of her own murder. When she disappears hours later and the book
comes into his possession, suspicion falls on him.

Pursued by the police and armed with
nothing but the book she has left behind, an unwavering determination, and the
assistance of the world’s most annoying man, Jacky must race through Paris to
solve the mystery and find the missing girl.

A wholly original, comical tale of
intrigue, betrayal and romance, this is the curious story of the world’s most
enigmatic book.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book
