Summary

 Monsieur Lecoq is the creation of Emile Gaboriau, just like Sherlock Holmes is for Conan Doyle and Hercule Poirot for Agatha Christie. Lecoq was created well before anyone had heard of Sherlock, infact it is a known fact that Doyle drew inspiration for Sherlock's character from Lecoq. The methodically, scientific manner in which Lecoq solves crimes is interesting to read, along with the ruthlessness of his conduct in some instances. It is fascination to read how crimes were solved back in the 1800s without the means of DNA testing or fingerprint technology etc.

    When doubt is cast on a presidential election, it sets off an “intricate, skillfully spun” tale of intrigue in this near-future political thriller (Publishers Weekly). At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the CIA has been disbanded and a secret society has taken hold of powerful positions across Washington. After a long and contentious campaign, President Bedford Lockwood is celebrating his reelection. But the revelry is cut short when it’s discovered that his over-zealous aides may have tampered with the vote. On the eve of the Inauguration, Lockwood’s rival—the archconservative Franklin Mallory—presents evidence of fraud. When Lockwood refuses to take the oath of office, it sets in motion a series of events that may destroy him, his party, and the Constitution. From this catastrophic crisis, acclaimed author and former Washington journalist Charles McCarry weaves a smart, tense, and eerily prescient political thriller.
