Three to Kill

Jean-Patrick Manchette

Businessman Georges Gerfaut witnesses a murder—and is pursued via the killers. His traditional existence knocked off the rails, Gerfaut turns the tables and units out to trace down his pursuers. alongside the way in which, he learns something or approximately himself.... Manchette—masterful stylist, ironist, and social critic—limns the cramped lives of execs in a neo-conservative world.
