Written by Karim Miské and translated by Sam Gordon, this is an ‘exciting’ and ‘stimulating’ thriller.
Citizens from multicultural backgrounds, live, love and work in a cosmopolitan district in Paris. The peaceful atmosphere is disturbed when Ahmed Taroudant’s daydreams are interrupted by dripping blood – coming from his neighbour’s corpse.
Laura Vignole’s murder is violent; the pork joint placed next to her is puzzling. Ahmed becomes the prime suspect of the case.
Detectives also have other leads. Questions are raised. What is the connection between a disbanded hip-hop group and fiery extremist preachers? What is the mysterious blue pill that is taking the district by storm?
Miské’s Arab Jazz is intriguing and provocative.
