| FRANGLISH REVIEW | LES TALONS HAUTS RAPPROCHENT LES FILLES DU CIEL BY OLIVIER GAY

Les Talons Hauts Rapprochent Les Filles Du CielLes Talons Hauts Rapprochent Les Filles Du Ciel
Auteur : Olivier Gay
Série : John-Fitzgerald Dumont
Publication : March 28th 2012 par les éditions Le Masque

Synopsis : Un serial killer rôde dans les rues de Paris. Plusieurs filles sont retrouvées assassinées de manière atroce dans leur appartement. Leur seul point commun ? Elles fréquentaient toutes le milieu de la nuit et les clubs à la mode. John-Fitzgerald, surnommé Fitz par ses amis, est un parasite par excellence. Dragueur paresseux et noctambule, il partage sa vie entre les soirées parisiennes, son amour des jeux en réseau et la vente de coke à la petite semaine. Ce héros improbable va se retrouver au cœur d’une enquête de plus en plus dangereuse, avec l’aide de ses conquêtes d’un soir et de ses amis toxicomanes. Grande gueule maladroite. incompétent notoire, séducteur au grand cœur, il semble bien mal armé pour affronter les basfonds parisiens. Mais tant qu’il y aura de l’alcool, la fête sera plus folle.

Il s’agit d’un thriller. Je n’en ai pas lu depuis de nombreuses années pour cause d’overdose haha !

Dans ce livre on suit les aventures de Fitz, petit dealer de drogue qui aime sa vie de noctambule dans la capitale. Il ne s’attend absolument pas à ce que son ex, flic, lui demande de participer à une enquête de meurtres en série.
L’atmosphère donne vite le ton : c’est sombre, sinistre et sanglant. C’est très bien écrit, l’enquête avance rapidement et j’ai bien aimé la touche d’humour ! J’ai adoré la référence à Sexy Sushi, ça m’a ramené des années en arrière !!

Je dois l’admettre, j’ai trouvé qui était le meurtrier seulement quelques pages avant la grosse révélation. D’habitude, cela me prend beaucoup moins de temps haha !

Je ne vais pas trop parler des personnages, histoire de ne pas spoiler. Je vais juste parler de Fitz, le personnage principal. Il est très interessant; un dealer de drogue au grand coeur ! Il veut juste gagner sa vie facilement, mais au fond c’est un chic type. Une fois qu’il a vu l’ampleur du carnage, il ne peut plus se sortir l’enquête de la tête. De plus on peut voir qu’il tient malgré tout beaucoup à ses amis.

J’ai vraiment beaucoup aimé ce livre et je le recommande aux fans de thrillers et enquêtes policières !

4 stars

This is a thriller, I haven’t read one of those for years now ( because I made an overdose of it hahaha )

Plot

We follow Fitz, a puny drug dealer, happy with his little life. His ex girlfriend, a cop, needs his help to resolve a series of murders. It’s very messy. Why does she need his help specifically ? Well, because she needs his contacts into the night world !

It’s gloomy, eerie and bloody ! The investigation is not slow paced, quite the opposite ! Fitz brings two of what he could call friends in his journey. They go from night club to night club asking questions, looking for the murderer.

It’s fast paced, well written but also funny ! I loved the Sexy Sushi reference, it got me back a few years earlier !

I have to admit, I only guessed who the murderer was a few pages before the revelation. Which means it was very well brought and written !

I’m not gonna talk about the characters, except for Fitz because I don’t want to spoil anyone.
Fitz is very interesting. A drug dealer with a soft heart ! He just wants to earn easy money but in the end he is a good guy ! He truly cares for his friends and his lovers. Somehow he also still cares for his ex. He wants to stop the murderer even if it puts his own life in jeopardy !

Overall I really enjoyed this book !

Hello lovelies ! How is your week end so far ? Mine is gonna be very short ! I know I’m very late but here is my This Week In Books ! TWIB is a weekly meme hosted by Lipsyy Lost & Found.

TWIB 47

I am currently reading Nothing More by Anna Todd. I’m really loving it so far ! Before that, I was reading Dark Triumph, book 2 in His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers. I liked it less than Grave Mercy, to be honest. I’ll explain why in my review.
Next, I plan on reading Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. You know, a spooky read just before Halloween !

What are you currently reading lovelies ?
