    Martin Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game so he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart. But the organization won't let him go - they have other plans for him. In a violent tale that shatters as many illusions as bodies, Jean-Patrick Manchette subjects his characters and listeners alike to a fierce exercise in style. This tightly plotted, corrosive parody of "the success story" is widely considered to be Manchette's masterpiece - a classic of modern noir.

    Martin Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game so he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart, Anne. After all, that's why he took up this profession in the first place. But the organization won't let him go - they have other, more deadly plans for him. There's a visiting politician, an Arab oil magnate, whom they want assassinated, and Terrier is their man. Once again, the gunman must assume the prone shooting position - but not everything goes according to plan.

    Edward A Wittern says: "I did not like it, but hey its only my opinion. "

    Martin Terrier était pauvre, esseulé, bête et méchant, mais pour changer tout ça, il avait un plan de vie beau comme une ligne droite. Après avoir pratiqué dix ans le métier d'assassin, fait sa pelote et appris les bonnes manières, il allait rentrer au pays retrouver sa promise et faire des ronds dans l'eau... Mais pour se baigner deux fois dans le même fleuve, il faut que beaucoup de sang passe sous les ponts.
