you surely want to know what happened to Victor Legris, the librarian and potential detective/murderer in the “Mystère rue des Saint-Pères”, I started reading the other day. Ok, I will just give you some hints, because otherwise you might not read it for yourself.
It is the best thing to do after getting a small cold, everyone around is coughing so I sympathize –
Now, Victor, in his 30s, is he my type of guy? Apparently good-looking. He has a bourgeois mistress whose husband is away on business, somewhere is South America. On the other hand, he has been charmed by the red-haired Tasha, who is painting the caricatures at his friend’s journal. A 23-year-old, apparently living by herself and having a lot of success with the opposite sex.
Victor is living at the same place with his associate, an older French-Japanese, Kenji Mori, who keeps secrets, even from Victor. And he seems to have a mysterious past.
In the middle of all this, about three people die, apparently stung by a bee. However, someone is living notes claiming that these deaths are not accidental.
I think that I have some things in common with Victor, so it could have worked out for us.
1. I love books, so he could interest me as a librarian.
2. He is falling in love quiet easy, before getting to know the other person, and his imagination is running wild with him.
3. He likes red-haired women, and I am in a red-hair mood these days.
Now, reasons why we might not hit it well:
a. he is still living with a father figure, and we don’t really know what his associate is up to.
b. He is spending three chapters thinking on Tasha instead of doing something. I am a little bit like this, so we would have to wait until the end of the book to see some action.
c. I don’t know yet if he is the murderer. And no, I am not dating the bad guy.
