Monsieur Lecoq Part 2: The Honor of the Name


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.2 stars; 7 reviews)

Monsieur Lecoq is a captivating mystery, historical and love story:

Around 11 o'clock, on the evening of Shrove Sunday 18.., close to the old Barrière d'Italie, frightful cries, coming from Mother Chupin's drinking-shop, are heard by a party of detectives led by Inspector Gévrol.

The squad runs up to it. A triple murder has just been committed. The murderer is caught on the premises.

Despite Gévrol's opinion that four scoundrels encountered each other in this vile den, that they began to quarrel, that one of them had a revolver and killed the others, Lecoq, a young police agent, suspects a great mystery.

In this second book (out of two) we go back in time to that dark period of French history. Little by little, the key to the mystery murder is unveiled. (Summary by Ezwa, expanded by Nadine)

Reviews

Fantastic book!


(5 stars)

Astonishing book. How Gaborieu tied together these two books is a work of genius. Much like the later Arthur Conan Doyle books with Sherlock Holmes, this book is a gem. I would actually go as far as saying that this book is on par with those books. A must read - or listen - for all fans of mystery.


(5 stars)
