Summary
Captain Bruno Courreges goes by the grand title of Chief of Police, though in truth he's the only municipal policeman on staff, in the small town of St Denis. He has a gun, but never wears it. He has the power to arrest but never uses it. But that might be about to change. When the body of an old man, head of an immigrant North African family, is found in his home, eviscerated, the conclusion is that this killing must be racist. But Bruno isn't convinced and suspects this unusual crime may have its roots in a tortured period of recent French history.
