A sweet little novella (or is it a novelette?) set in 1924 Paris. A police detective story about a man shot dead in a alley, and the gendarmes find a large, empty purse beside the body. And there are seventeen thousand francs in his pocket. How strange, oui?
As Inspector Maintenon says,
A certain type of victim requires a certain type of perpetrator.
And now to find the perpetrator.
A quick read, and not too damaging to your frontal lobes. OH! I almost forgot to tell you. I researched the difference between a novella and a novelette. A novella is normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel, whereas a novelette is a short novel, typically one that is light and romantic or sentimental.
Yeah. That clears it right up. What if it is shorter than a long story? Oh, never mind. This one is short, and you can snag it for free on Smashwords. Scroll down to the chart of downloading options.
I do so love free, don’t you?
