Jacques waited for a response.
“Oh, yes, the young man with the telephone, darling, you remember…”
She walked over to the sideboard and collected her cigarettes and then sat at the table beside her husband. “I think we asked him for tea, didn’t we?”
John smiled as he verbalised the thought. Madame breathed in the fumes from her cigarette.
“That’s right, darling.”
She let the smoke escape into the air as she spoke. “And he said he was in a hurry, darling, and refused our invitation.” She pointedly stared at him.

I died beneath a clear autumn sky in September, late in September when warm cévenol afternoons drift into cooler than usual evenings before winter steals down from the summit of Mont Aigoual.

SYNOPSIS

Sacrificing his job in investigation following an incident in Paris, Jacques Forêt has only a matter of weeks to solve a series of mysterious disappearances as a Gendarme in the rural French village of Messandrierre. But, as the number of missing persons rises, his difficult and hectoring boss puts obstacles in his way. Steely and determined, Jacques won’t give up and, when a new Investigating Magistrate is appointed, he becomes the go-to local policeman for all the work on the case. Will he find the perpetrators before his lover, Beth, becomes a victim? Messandrierre – the first in a new crime series featuring investigator, Jacques Forêt.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Messandrierre Angela Wren 

Angela Wren
Having followed a career
in Project and Business Change Management,
I now work as an Actor and Director at a local theatre.
I’ve been writing, in a serious way, for about 5 years.
My work in project management has always involved drafting,
so writing, in its various forms,
has been a significant feature throughout my adult life.
I particularly enjoy the challenge of plotting
and planning different genres of work.
My short stories vary between contemporary romance, memoir,
mystery and historical.
I also write comic flash-fiction and have drafted two one-act plays
that have been recorded for local radio.
The majority of my stories are set in France
where I like to spend as much time as possible each year.
