Manotti: Dominique: Lorraine Connection (09.04.09)

An interesting combination of industrial espionage, murder and the darker workings of government policies which uses real rather than imaginary firms. I assume that the basis for the story at the local level is invented though the high-powered scheming may well be a feasible interpreation os what may have happened. There is a steady pace throughout even during what are necessary explanatory or background passages and most of the leading players well described though many of the lesse ones are but ciphers - as it should be. It certainly kept my attention with the result that I read the book ssomewhat more rapidly than usual
