The first book of the Marseilles Trilogy, Total Chaos is an outstanding entry into the genre of Mediterranean Noir. American Noir featured stone cold detectives, flatfooted police, a damsel in distress, a pistol in a pocket, and often, some mysterious object or secret motivation that spurned on the crime and the criminologist. In Total Chaos, and in the Mediterranean Noir in general, the novel is set against a backdrop of political and social upheaval. Personal relationships complicate... well, everything. You don't want me to say more. This book is followed by Chourmo.
