This book, first published in 1973, tells a tough, gritty tale of Paris during the Algerian war for independence. It involves terrorists, prostitutes, and one of the principal characters is a policeman who chases both, although for different reasons. His counterpart is an innocent Algerian caught up in the violence, but finding the love of his life. Although the book does include some refreshing tenderness, its treatment of sexual encounters, whether consensual or otherwise, is general both violent and graphic. The lengthy account of the double rape of the policeman¿s wife provides a major pivotal moment in the book. A good S&M read, but definitely not for the faint-hearted.
