Vautrin is especially good at conveying the smells, most of them awful - of people, mildew, exhausted horses, bombs and rotting . This novel brings to life the voices of the people of Paris at the time of the Commune in 1871.

Vautrin is especially good at conveying the smells, most of them awful - of people, mildew, exhausted horses, bombs and rotting corpses. But the writing is so overwrought - people don't merely "say" something, they "snort" it or "grunt" it or even "whinny" it (I'm translating from Vautrin's over-abundant use of underworld argot) - that you know the story must have been conceived as a comic book, which it has now become, with illustrations by Jacques Tardi.

Horace Grondin, deputy head of the Surete is in fact Charles Bassicousse, sentenced 16 years earlier for a murder he did not commit. He is obsessed with wreaking his revenge on Antoine Tarpagnan, the man he believes did commit the crime. Tarpagnan, an army captain, has fallen in love with Gabriella Pucci, the mistress of Paris's greatest villain. As Tarpagnan searches the underworld for Gabriella, Grondin searches for him. Vautrin's novel revels in the chaos and passion of the period, culminating in the savage repression of the Commune. The final climactic moments between Grondin and Tarpagnan take place on the barricades as Paris descends into a fury of bloodletting and panic.
