The Dying Minutes book. While I enjoyed the characters in this book particularly Inspector Daniel Jacquot, I found the story very predicable and somewhat disappointing.

When an old friend dies and leaves Jacquot a fishing boat, all kinds of secrets and crimes come back to haunt him, in the seventh in the Marseilles-set Inspector Daniel Jacquot novels

Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot is on sick leave recovering from gunshot wounds when Isabelle Cassier, an old friend and sometime lover, pays him a visit. After working for the Judiciaire in Paris following the end of their brief affair, Isabelle has returned to Marseilles and rejoined the homicide squad. And her visit, she tells him, is official—Jacquot's name has appeared in connection with an unsolved murder she's investigating, and she wants some answers. She wants to know what he knows about a dead cop called Gilles Barsin, and just how friendly he was with Jean-Louis Lombard, a notorious dockland villain also known as The Seahorse? The two names spin Jacquot back to his days as a rookie cop, a distant time when the lines between law and disorder were often blurred, when silly mistakes were sometimes made, and friendship came at a heavy price. Now, years later, it looks like someone is spilling the beans.

I've read all the Jacquot books and never been disappointed although he seems to sail very close to the wind where women are concerned! Good mystery and great descriptions of the French Mediterranean coats and lifestyle.

This is Jacquot with a boat. I really like both so I really liked this novel. I've been drinking Calva ever since page 5.

I regret to say that Daniel Jacquot has become a bit of a bore in this latest novel. Too much time is spent on his personal relationships rather than on the plot. It may be that his new uxorious state has taken its toll. I would consider this Daniel Jacquot a bit of a pot boiler. I

My first impression was - The story opens with a gold heist. A woman and two male accomplices. Nothing is mentioned about who, what or where so by the first few pages you automatically want to know the connection these three people have with the rest of the story. As the timeline changes to present day and Daniel Jacquot becomes involved, a mystery is afoot but what?

As I got to the middle, I felt - Deaths have already occurred but again, the thread of connection is only just forming. Jacquot's inheritance is something any of us can only dream of but suspicion lingers. Martin O'Brien does an excellent job at building suspense and keeping you hooked. The appearance of Isabelle Cassier becomes another mystery. She has been romantically involved with Jacquot in the past and sets a goal to win him, pregnant partner or not. Which brings me to one reservation I had about this book. Why the author chose to describe a pregnant woman smoking or drinking bothered me a little bit.

As I neared the end, I thought - The gold heist of 1972 is explained. More than twenty years later, betrayals come to light. Hatred revived. Daniel Jacquot and the reader are both caught in a web. The plot becomes intricate and you won't be able to put the book down. Amidst a serene Marseilles backdrop, shots are fired and blood is shed.

My final impression and recommendations - This is the first Daniel Jacquot book I have read and it was impressive. Martin O'Brien's attention to detail is admirable and I definitely want to read other books in the Jacquot series. For instance, the way Philo hid the location of the stolen gold with his bookmarks was crafty. Highly recommended book.

OBrien is an outstanding thriller writer . His city is Marseilles and even if the places that he mentions may have been changed as every major city has demolished old buildings and old streets ,O'Brien gives you a lovely feel to the city and even if the old time gangsters have died and in some cases they enjoyed their ill-gotten gains to the end the people around them are all vividly portrayed. What O'Brien does so well is to show the greed of criminals who are never satisfied with one bar of gold but have to take all there is and the simple credulity of the ones on the lower rungs of the gangster ladder that the bosses will allow them to share in the riches is wonderfully conveyed. O'Brien knows his seamanship and he has carefully worked out the position of all the vessels in the harbour at the finale and he eliminates the baddies in the gun-battle in masterly fashion but perhaps he could have saved Isabelle Cassier's life if he had been writing for a French publisher but he is influenced by the Bond books.and unfortunately to remove this feature of the dying female as in the Bond books must be heresy..

I found this by chance after reading another excellent series of crime novels set in France and I have not been disappointed.
The book was hard to put down as the writers descriptions made me feel I was other on the page in the warm sun,smelling the ses and tasting the wine.
I would certainly recommend this book.
