[Back cover translation] Three crime stories by G7:

Le Grand Langoustier - At Poquerolles, three women have disappeared. Suspicion falls on Henri, the owner of “Le Grand Langoustier”, a Lady’s man with a mysterious past. This  is exactly what is bothering G7...

La nuit des 7 minutes - In an isolated mansion in Asnieres, a Russian General is killed from one gun shot. Suicide? Murder? The conundrum is perfect, but G7 will solve the enigma by falling in love with a photographer...

La “Marie-Galante” - The “Marie-Galante”, after having been mourned for years, sails off one night like a ghost ship. On board, no one; in the hold, the body of a woman. G7 is requested to conduct a parallel investigation by the ship owner. He’s not well, he stays in his bedroom, looking down the harbour, and suddenly, despite all appearances, G7 brings the truth to light.

Les sept minutes was first published by Editions Gallimard in 1938
