Affairs of State

I'm currently reading Affairs of State by Dominique Manotti, tr. Amanda Hopkinson and Ros Schwartz, which came out last November.


The author of the award-winning Lorraine Connection returns with yet another riveting tale of intrigue and corruption. A call-girl whose black book lists her elite international clients is found murdered, a mysterious plane bound for Iran disappears over Turkey - and the president's closest advisor, Bonard, is manipulating the system with consummate ease. It's up to rookie advisor Noria Ghozali to untangle the threads which bind these events together - and to combat the racism which repeatedly stalls her efforts.

Wow, strong stuff! Another one I must bear in mind if it keeps up at this pitch (I daren't say actually buy, as I have so many they don't fit on any shelves any more and are spilling out over the floor).
