THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
Last year I discovered this amusing tale set in France. I am delighted that there will be about book out. I am looking forward to reading it. The protagonist is a police officer that the upper management felt needed to be fired. Instead of fireing her, she was given a squad of misfits in an office were nothing work. The squad went on a found a serious police corruption.

Commissaire Anne Capestan was doing battle with the latest in a long line of shoddy printers allocated to her team by the ever munificent police quartermaster. The machine maintained that it was running low on ink, even though Capestan had only just replaced the cartridge. After pressing every single button twice, the commissaire admitted defeat. She did not have anything particularly important to print. Not least because she did not have anything particularly important to work on. Or any work at all, in fact.

The location of the story is in France and it interrupts the flow of the narrative. The French names are difficult to understand. Anne Capestan expected to be fire from the Police She was surprised to put to head a new squad. This squad is made up of all the misfits of the Police that CAN NOT BE FIRED. The Squad's headquarters are in a run-down building and given old equipment with which to work. The cases all the department's COLD CASES. Surprisingly the members mashed together. Sorting through the files they find two cases of murder. These files are selected to reopen. How various factors are woven together is intriguing as they discover police corruption. I recommend this book.
