Ergerac Prefecture Auguste Ran Assistant Chief of Police suspects Brunner a German Security Police Major of the crime The Auguste investigates the obsessed he becomes with bringing down the seemingly untouchable BrunnerAuguste begins to realise he has been conveniently ignoring the Nazi atrocities going on around him and understands too late the human cost of his own participation in the internment of the local Jewish populationDriven by conscience and struggling with his Cath Holding it in my hand this book has a slightly larger than average format with a glossy cover and bright white pages feeling like a textbook than a wartime novel Yet the story hidden behind this facade is anything but textbook; The Cyclist is enthrallingThe story is brilliantly executed Fast paced with short snappy sentences and surprising plot twists The Cyclist is a real page turner so much so that I found myself skimming paragraphs just to discover the outcome of certain uandaries Nath manages to strike a fine balance progressing with the plot while providing just enough uasi historical insight to fuel the story too much historical context can often overshadow the narrative But Nath’s greatest success is the atmospheric tension that he creates somewhat effortlessly doors “click” closed feet “slap” on floors and heels “clack” on the “cobbles” outside the Prefecture Admittedly I sometimes found the imagery to be slightly repetitive all doors seem to “click” closed and yet the repetition does seem to be an invaluable tool in creating this atmospheric tension which is well sustained throughout the textAt times I found the the prose slightly akward “He knew he must have been dreaming but had no recall of it” and the erroneous typo’s throughout the text did distract me “acc ompanying” “in tolerance” “Dubois””Dubos” But none of this retracts from what is essentially a gripping and haunting story about a conflicted and tortured soul and I highly recommend it
