En un mot whaouh.
Un schéma très classique, on part de ratés, ils rencontrent un succès étonnant jusqu'au moment où ça dérape, et évidemment, la chute est dure.
Mais l'engrenage est parfaitement huilé, les personnages sont excellents, attachants. Ce livre se lit et se relit d'une traite.

I stopped reading once I realized I had seen the movie. Entertaining and tightly scripted though.

Un excellent livre, bien écrit et plein d'humour (noir). Il se lit tout seul! Décidément, j'aime bien Tonino Benacquista! :)
