“An entertaining thriller … A Very Profitable War is also noteworthy because Daeninckx doesn’t just think outside the box as far as this fairly well-worn genre goes, he shatters it.” —The Complete Review

“The most controversial of contemporary French crime novelists.”  —The Independent
“One hell of an unflinching look at war and its aftermath.” —The Thrilling Detective

Praise for Didier Daeninckx’s Murder in Memoriam

“How many detective stories have helped a country confront its past? Murder in Memoriam has certainly done that.” —The Guardian

“Serves as a tap on the shoulder—a necessary reminder that what is dead is not buried, and what is buried is, unfortunately, not dead.” —Derek Raymond

Murder in Memoriam is the kind of book that begins to restore one’s confidence in the detective story. Not only has Daeninckx produced a particularly intriguing narrative, but he has found a way to give this narrative a satisfying significance. . . A touch of moral vision and a pinch of righteous anger work wonders.” —Nick Hornby

“A masterful weave of political history.” —Publishers Weekly
