Thrillers/noir Novels

The Samouraï’s daughter

Dominique SYLVAIN

Ingrid Diesel and Lola Jost, the whacky duo from Passage of Desire, come back to lead the investigation after the mysterious death of Alice, a friend’s daughter.

While getting ready for her act as the double of Britney Spears, she “fell from the 34th floor”. A videographer shot everything, and all the television channels fight to get the images of the pseudo suicide.

Press reviews

Le Monde des livres

« This Alice fable crossed over to the other side of the mirror provides Dominique Sylvain the opportunity for a subtle reflection about the role of image in our society, its political use - for example within the context of blackmail - but also all forms of manipulation and the morbid taste of our contemporaries for reality television. »

La Liberté de l’Est

« Dominique Sylvain has recreated with brio the interdependent life of a district whose café-restaurant is the center, and where a likeable bunch search for a bit of company. »

L’Est républicain

« Incisive dialogue and a corrosive style that scoff at the TF1 [television channel] motto : What we sell to Coca-Cola is available human brain time. »
