Thrillers/noir Novels

Manta corridor

Dominique SYLVAIN

In this third episode of the adventures of Lola Jost and Ingrid Diesel, Dominique Sylvain takes us into a picturesque and mysterious Paris, peopled with strange and colourful figures. Her sharp, entertaining and gloriously cynical style is shot through with humour, while she deals with the most disturbing of subjects.

Manta Corridor is an undercover police investigation, a treasure hunt and a voyage of self-discovery rolled into one and undertaken at breakneck speed by a sparkling duo of characters.

Press reviews

Marie France

« In Dominique Sylvain’s novels, the dialogue evokes Audiard’s best films, the supporting roles are terrific and the intrigue is sufficiently twisted to hold spellbound the most listless of readers. A nice piece of work. »


« Chic, we find once again the picturesque tandem imagined by Dominique Sylvain : the round Lola (…), and the slender Ingrid (…). Having lost nothing of her colorfulness, Dominique Sylvain takes us for a stroll between an African hair salon in the 13th district and a dive in the Seine… »


« Third episode of the duo Lola-Ingrid, this novel succeeds in taking readers on a voyage within just a couple blocks of houses.(…) great moment of good humor, good food and dance in the land of hair curlers and Senegalese proverbs. »
