A getaway in the heart of Montana

Une escapade au cœur du Montana

If you want a novel, ruthless, is really hard to forget, well here it is !

A long time ago, the Newman had ranch and land in the vicinity of Delphia, Montana. But today, it only remains to Wendell Newman, 24 years, a squalid mobile home parked at the end of the Bull Mountains. Even if it is far from being the ideal place for raising children, a social worker will yet one day come to wear one : the bastard son of a cousin drug addict who has just been sent to prison. So, to Wendell to take care of it. A nice challenge, the small, Rowdy, 7 years old, does not speak and has a serious delay of development. That’s not a problem! From the moment this shy kid and skeletal, out in his life, Wendell really will make everything in his power to make things go well between them.

Black past

A nice novel learning ? Not quite. For that, he would have taken that it happens in another family, and elsewhere in Montana, where the first wolf hunting legal in all the history of this corner of the country is in the process of preparing.

Because of his father, who had to go hide in the Bull Mountains many years earlier, Wendell has inherited a past marked by violence. A past he thought he’d left behind him long ago, but that, with the upcoming opening of the wolf hunt, will eventually revert to him in the face like a boomerang. Remains to be seen if he will be able to dodge the blow in time to be able to continue to protect Rowdy of the human stupidity…

A history lasts, but beautiful.

At the age of 88, John le Carré sign his 25th novel. And for those who ask the question, it is really very good. Why ? Because Nat, the hero, arrives with a disarming ease to intrigue us and capture our attention.

Like most of the characters created by Square, Nat is working for the Secret Intelligence Service british, from a sacred lease. And then he expects to be scrapped shortly, he will offer instead to run the Shelter. What could have been a nice assignment, if most of the members of this sub-station of the department for Russia had not been so bumbling…

Fire to the powder

Outside of the job – and this is where it will get interesting ! – Nat attended mainly the badminton of the Athleticus Club of Battersea. He’s the main champion and a beautiful day, a badiste by the name of Ed Shannon will be measured against him. For a few months, they will take the habit to face every Monday, and the loser to pay the first beer. This is how, over time, Nat will learn a quantity of things on Ed. His passion for geopolitics, for example, or his strong opinions on Trump and the Brexit. Of small things a priori without interest, but which will eventually seriously disrupt work and daily life of Nat !
