Summary:In the "Black City" of Versières, territory forgotten by the Republic, a teenager of North African origin is found dead on the edge of a RER track. The day before, he had been pursued by a young peacekeeper. Everything seems to indicate that it is not for nothing, but that does not matter: the games are made. The police, the family, the big brothers, the town hall, the lawyers, the press, the "consciences" - all get involved, everyone looks for his account but no one seems to care about the essential: who is the real guilty? From the Elysee Palace to the Ministry of the Interior, from a police station to a luxury swimming pool to an information magazine, L'Ere des suspects takes us to the heart of a society of lies and pretense, where the "victims" serve as media spoils for the tartuffes that govern us. Between political thriller and power comedy, Gilles Martin-Chauffier signs his Bûcher des vanités à la française: an ambitious novel about the impostures of our time.
