?Garnier's crime novels add significantly to the latest renaissance for this type of dark narrative' - Publishers WeeklyVolume 1 includes How's the Pain?, the tale of an ageing ?pest exterminator' taking on one last job on the French Riviera; The Panda Theory, in which a stranger, Gabriel, arrives in a Breton town and befriends the locals ... but is he as angelic as he seems?; and The A26, in which a new Picardy motorway brings modernity close to a flat in which a brother and sister live together, haunted by terminal illness and the events of 1945.
Death is Simon's business. And now the ageing vermin exterminator is preparing to die. But he still has one last job down on the coast, and he needs a driver. Veering from the hilarious to the horrific, this offbeat story from Pascal Garnier, is at heart an affecting study of human frailty.
Gabriel is a stranger in a small Breton town. Nobody knows where he came from or why he's here. Yet his small acts of kindness quickly earn him acceptance from the locals. His new friends grow fond of Gabriel, who seems as benign as the toy panda he wins at the funfair. But unlike Gabriel, the fluffy toy is not haunted by his past...
