Empire of the Wolves

by Jean-Christophe Grangé

Fast-moving thriller which requires some concentration as the narrative unfolds from several angles. Don't be put off by the fact that it is in translation as it doesn't show! If you normally stick to British & American thrillers give this a try as the Turkish /French context didn't pose any cultural obstacles for this reader.

Extract

As before, she lengthened her syllables into deep undulations. Nobody could forget such a voice. A flood of saliva filled his mouth. A sludge which tasted just like the stench in the corridor. He knew what it was now: the bitter, profound, malevolent taste of fear. He was its sole source. It was exuding from every pore of his body.
Translated by Ian Monk
