After two decades of marriage, Gilles Sebag, a police detective in Perpignan on the French Mediterranean shore, is more in love than ever with his beautiful wife, Claire, and he’s devoted to his teenage son and daughter. But as midsummer sets in, he’s filled with angst; Claire may be having an affair, and his children are rapidly outgrowing family vacations. With the kidnapping of a young Dutch tourist, Gilles must
compartmentalize his worries, unravel an increasingly confounding case, and save the young woman.
 
Georget, a newscaster for France 3 television, has put together a stylish debut novel filled with engaging characters, a vivid sense of place, and an abundance of discursive Gallic charm. Gilles is a fine protagonist: smart, conflicted, not entirely sure he’s up to the challenges before him, fully French but completely at home in a place that is as much Catalan as French. Georget’s Perpignan, just kilometers from Spain, sounds, tastes, and smells like paradise. Summertime, All the Cats Are Bored is a superior beach read for fans of international crime.
