Robert  Hültner - Lazare and the Dead Man on the Beach


A murderous conspiracy in idyllic south of France – the new crime novel by the award-winning author Robert Hültner

A body in the canal: tragic, but in the picturesque town of Sète, the Venice of southern France, not a rare misfortune. It has probably only got something to do with the quarrels the gitanes have among themselves, the gypsies who have been living on the edge of the town for years.

So it is indeed strange that an inspector is called in from Montpellier to look into the case. The local authorities are consternated and welcome Siso Lazare accordingly. They do not realise that Lazare has come to uncover a – murderous, if necessary – conspiracy of wangling, corruption and fraud that has the entire region in its stranglehold. What Lazare does not realise is that on top of it all there is a score from France's recent past waiting to be settled.

Press on At the End of the Day:

"Hültner's crime stories are among the best in the genre." ZDF

“A gripping political thriller in a beautiful landscape […] wonderfully written.”

ORF Fernsehen
