Wedged in an isolated crevice on a rock face outside a university town in the French Alps, a mutilated corpse, naked and in the foetal position, has been discovered. Pierre Niemans, the ex-golden boy of the commando squad, a brilliant detective but prone to uncontrollable fits of temper, is sent from Paris to investigate." "Meanwhile, in a small town in rural France, another maverick policeman, Karim Abdouf, once a poor Arab boy from the back-streets of Nanterre, is trying to find out why the tomb of a child in the local cemetery should have been desecrated." "When another body is found, high up in a glacier, the paths of these two highly unconventional policemen are uncannily joined. Are they confronted by the operations of a satanic sect, or by a gang of crazed killers? Or do the hints of genetic manipulation point to an even more macabre form of vengeance?.

After knowing that the movie “The Crimson Rivers” was based on the book “Blood-Red Rivers” I ordered it without hesitation. You know the rule… the book is always better than the movie. Beside, the author is French, which gave the whole scenario something a bit exotic.

Everything changed as soon as I started reading it!

I find the translation horrible; it makes me wonder if Ion Monk (translator) has ever read a PI/Detective Crime Fiction novel.

Jean C. Grangé is the other one guilty to why I ended almost hating “Blood-Red Rivers”. He had a great idea, but in the end, it became too much to compromise.
The beginning of the book is really good and I kept turning the pages, but toward the end it was like reading a conspiracy within a conspiracy within a conspiracy, and as I continued reading I felt like the ice below this heavy plot became thinner and thinner. In the end it just collapsed by its own weight, or should I say stupidity.
