Dirty War

Dominique SYLVAIN

Foreign rights : Italy (Mondadori) - United Kingdom (McLehose Press) - Russia (Corpus)

The atrocious death of Florent Vidal opens this 5th adventure with Ingrid Diesel and Lola Jost. Burned alive, with a tyre around his body, two steps away from a pool, Vidal used to be a business lawyer, specialized in franco-african relations and arming contracts.

This horrible murder strangely resembles Kidjo’s assassination, Lola Jost’s former partner when she was a police captain. The case had never been solved and still weighed on Lola’s shoulders and conscience.

Willing and full of energy, she takes over this new investigation with her friend Ingrid, pararrel to the police. But very quickly the duo understands that the stakes are too high and go way up into the the powerful spheres of society. They then decide to have a truce, an understanding with captain Duguin, from the judicial police.

Lola’s wit and helpless anger as well as the dialogues bring a halo to this energetic and exciting plot.
