“And if it is not really in the Noir genre, this novel by the ‘maillot jaune’ of the French thriller writers, constitutes an amazing exercise in style. Fantastic!”
Le Courrier de l’Ouest, 27th June 1996.
“The thoughts, the personal commitment and the clarity of a writer known for his clear-cut views at the centre of main-stream opinion are developed through the metaphor of cycling, in the midst of the maelstrom of thoughts going around the head of a racing cyclist in the lead[…] So 54 X13 is also for those who think cyclists are cretins and the thriller a second class genre.”
Calamar, N° 2, summer 1997.
