Watching the Detectives

(1983)
(The third book in the Inspector Jan Argand series)
A novel by

 
CRIME WITH A POLITICAL EDGE
In Brabt, the trains run on time and the bags you lose end up at the lost-and-found. Suddenly, the clockwork state is interrupted - by police brutality and terrorist violence. Headlines and news bulletins put the blame on 'left-wing violence committed to the overthrow of the state'. Commissioner Jan Argand agrees, until an anti-nuclear demonstration turns into a near massacre and Argand himself narrowly escapes an attempt on his life.
Julian Rathbone is a highly original artist who uses the thriller form to comment on the increasing violence and absurdity of the post-industrial world we live in. The Literary Review.
