Matthieu Gousseff, Ici finit le monde occidental

In this whimsical noir fiction, Matthieu Gousseff orchestrates a hectic waltz for mice, doctors, Russian sailors, animal specialists, soldiers and investors of all kinds. And this is how our Western world wavers.

In Brest, Atlantest is a mysterious pharmaceutical company. In building B2, tests are organized in partnership with the army to develop a new patch against fever and other substances with less praiseworthy purposes. But the head of this company, Thierry Lorentz has fled. And before disappearing, he attacked the Minister of Economy and the general secretary of a large trade union. Now there are many who would do anything to get their hands on him.

The author

Matthieu Gousseff was born in 1976 in the Yvelines and has worked in all sorts of professions: agronomist, statistician, banker, goat breeder, market unpacker, translator, data-scientist, teacher, etc. He writes book reviews for local radio stations, wins a few short story competitions and publishes stories under various pseudonyms.

Strong points

A novel that blends the codes of the traditional noir novel with great originality.

Laboratory, military interference, pressure from investors: a novel set behind the scenes of pharmaceutical research.
