Description - The Mise-en-Scene by Claude Ollier

First published in France in 1958 and winner of the prestigious Prix Medecis, The Mise-en-Sc ne takes place in the mountains of Morocco when the French still controlled North Africa. An engineer named Lassalle has been sent from France to plan a road through the mountains. Although Lassalle seems to be successful, he finds out that another engineer, Lessing, has preceded him, and that Lessing, as well as others, may have been murdered. In part a detective novel and in part an investigation into the nature of knowledge, The Mise-en-Sc ne is controlled by a tone and style that are truly remarkable.
