The Haunted Detective

by Pirate Irwin

Paris might be liberated and the war at an end but a huge influx of returning refugees, concentration camp survivors and less savoury types who fought for or collaborated with the Nazis presents a whole swathe of problems for a hard-pressed government which is already struggling with food and power shortages.

There is also a thirst for vengeance — some taken on the street but also a set of trials in court for the major figures in the Vichy Government.

One of those is Lafarge’s father — the senior confidant of Marshal Petain — who is incarcerated in Fresnes prison with others from the disgraced regime.

Lafarge fears for his father’s life and along with his colourful step brother — who has returned on a train filled with POW’s — pays two guards to look out for him.

However, he is murdered and whilst Lafarge is warned by his superior to take a backseat on the investigation he is soon heavily involved as other murders appear to be linked to that of his father whilst the two prison guards disappear.

With the fear his own past crimes will be revealed and with his family a constant source of anxiety he finds solace in his love of cognac and becomes enmeshed in a sinister tale of betrayal and murder where no one appears above suspicion in a city that is a long way from emerging from its nightmare.

The most formidable armies will stop at nothing to take its insatiable power, especially Mezox’s arch-nemesis, Summanus.

l’ordine (Italian Edition)

by lucio mencatelli

Dalla finestra poteva osservare lo spaventoso manto di nubi, che, laggiù, premeva sull’orizzonte ormai sopraffatto. Presto sarebbe arrivata : niente e nessuno avrebbe fermato la tempesta.
Il lago, grigio e tremante, sarebbe stato tra non molto preda del vento gelido. Ne avrebbe percosso senza pietà la superficie. E onde spumeggianti si sarebbero infrante sulle rive. Gabbiani e corvi stavano gridando in cerca di un solido riparo.
La natura era in attesa di ciò che sarebbe stato inevitabile.
Ma, come sempre accadeva, alla tempesta, al disordine, sarebbe seguita la serenità. E l’ordine.

Osservò le prime tenui lacrime di pioggia scivolare a fatica lungo la vetrata aperta.
Scendevano lungo una fila quasi perfetta,come in una devota processione. Si riunivano. Poi si lasciavano. E quindi si riabbracciavano nuovamente.
Un magico ordine le guidava verso l’obiettivo comune.
Il suo indice si posò su una fila di gocce.
Quasi spaventate dall’intrusione, esse si separarono, per poi ritrovarsi , un po’ più avanti, come allegre compagne di viaggio.
All’ordine , imposto dalla natura e dalla fisica, lui aveva opposto la forza del suo disordine : aveva avuto il temporaneo potere di creare una nuova via per quelle gocce. Un nuovo equilibrio . Un nuovo mondo.
La sua vita era racchiusa in quell’immagine : disordine per un nuovo ordine. Migliore del precedente?
Così gli avevano insegnato.
Ma lui non ne era più tanto sicuro.
