The Accident on the A35 ✓ From the author of the Man Booker–shortlisted His Bloody ProjectThe methodical but troubled Chief Inspector Georges Gorski visits the wife of a lawyer killed in a road accident the accident on the A35 The case is unremarkable the visit routine Mme Macrae Burnet writes a literary mystery paying homage to Sartre and Georges Simenon in this distinctly French style novel set primarily in the non descript and insipid small town of Saint Louis An author commits suicide paving the path to the publication of a novel deemed to be autobiographical although how much is truth or false is up for debate but it does feel real George Gorski Chief of Police in the town is by his own estimation a provincial plodder separated from his wife Celine and missing his daughter He wanders around the town's bars cafes and restaurants drinking whilst trying to avoid being perceived as a drinker A fatal car accident on the A35 kills respectable lawyer Bernard Barthelme a man not much mourned by those close to him or those who knew him Lucette the widow asks him to look into the death because her husband by all rights should not have been on that road Feeling drawn to Lucette and with nothing better to do Gorski begins to look into the mystery This is a slow building character driven story not a plot driven crime story with tension and suspense17 year old Raymond Barthelme feels an overwhelming sense of a burden lifted with the death of his father much like his mother Bernard had instituted a rigid and austere set of routines that inhibited mother and son a house of silence where putting the heating on was heavily frowned upon Slowly these rituals are challenged under the disapproving eye of the housekeeper Therese Raymond embarks on a fit of rebellion and out of character behaviour and upon finding a scrap of paper with an address in a nearby small town in his father's desk he is intrigued His curiosity leads him to spend substantial amounts of time there attracted to a waitress going to a club called Johnny's looking into the inhabitants at that address and observing them Gorski contacts Strasbourg police over the slim possibility of a connection with the accident and a murder investigationMacrae paints a masterly picture of small town life the disappointments bar brawls angst humiliations teenage sexual forays social class disintegrating marriages secrets and petty behaviours that typify the everyday in Saint Louis for the main characters This novel is for those who enjoy character driven psychological studies and interested in small town French society and its workings The central mystery of why Bernard Barthelme was on the road packs its own punch but it is not the central focus of the story A book I thoroughly enjoyed reading and recommend highly Many thanks to Skyhorse Publishing for an ARC KINDLE ¸ The Accident on the A35 Ú Graeme Macrae Burnet
