Odette (Fiction) (Paperback)
Diplomacy. Suspicion. Surveillance. Espionage. Doubt.
Undeniably attractive, Paul has had his share of success with women, with no regrets. Recently promoted to the prestigious position of Director of Foreign Affairs, he is perfectly adapted to the world of political and other intrigues of the diplomatic corps.
Until, that is, the day he happens to notice a woman who obviously works in the same stifling office building. Who is this beautiful stranger? Where is she from? What is she thinking, as she strolls by, taking no notice of him? Why does she fascinate him so?
With each interminable day that goes by, Paul becomes increasingly obsessed. How far will he go to meet this woman, to conquer the feminine ideal that seems forever out of reach?
Published in French.
