Two Weeks in the South of France

Entree **** of *****
Christopher Voss is a young man who has never had a job that he truly loved or a woman who he wanted in his life long term. He's an only child, not close to either parent, whose father's job took him abroad more than he was home. When Christopher's father is murdered in Toulouse, a city in the south of France, Chris takes a trip there to unravel his father's murder, finish his business transactions, and bring his body home. For the first time in his life, Chris has a purpose. Unravelling his father's murder and closing up his business are no easy tasks and once his plane lands, Chris finds himself in a rollicking adventure that involves his father's past in the French Foreign Legion, attempts on his life, his father's intriguing and immensely profitable business, residence in a lovely old hotel, Russian mobsters, the French police, sexy women and several mysterious organizations searching for the document that his father had in his possession before he died. Two weeks in the South of France is an exciting, intriguing tale of suspense that leaves Chris wondering if he will ever make it back home. The supporting cast is great and the book is a fast read, one that you don't want to put down. My only gripe is that the book was not well edited. For me, poor punctuation and grammar detract from the tale.
