    Excellent WWII dramatic story

    This is an absorbing story, set up from the start as a faux biography of a Chief of Police in rural France under the Vichy regime. Auguste is a policeman first and foremost. He continues to 'do his job' even though the Nazis are in power and determine every aspect of law, order, life and death. When he finally realises he is a collaborator in mass murder he becomes a fighter. There are repeat sections of soul searching and discussion with Catholic priests on the rightness of action taken in wartime. These seem to occur when he passes a Catholic church - and in rural France there are a lot of Catholic churches. Personally I found those unsatisfying and fewer of them would have made the point just as well. Otherwise the story flows smoothly and the action is a realistic and unnerving portrayal of that time.

    The Cyclist

    Wonderful but so painful. I have 2 son's but whilst reading this book I became a father of two daughters for whom I have always longed.
