Death on the Pont Noir (Inspector Lucas Rocco) Adrian Magson
"Nothing else mattered. He'd been cut loose by his bosses and his twisted vision of what had happened saw only one ending: revenge. And that revenge was centred solely on Rocco."
France, 1963. A farmer reports a truck ramming into a car near Amiens, Picardie, followed by gunfire. A group of Englishmen are brought in after a bar fight. A tramp's body is discovered in a burnt-out truck. All this occurring after multiple attempts on the President's life. Inspector Lucas Rocco knows there's a connection somewhere.
Yet despite all clues pointing to the Pont Noir for the next attack on the President, his superiors reject his suspicions. Finding himself suspended, the victim of a set-up, with no badge and no authority, and facing the lethal response of English gangsters, Rocco has to go it alone...
