Description - Fairy Gunmother by Daniel Pennac

In the bustling, multi-ethnic quarter of Paris known as Belleville, a policeman is shot dead by a sweet but gun-toting old granny when he tries to help her across the road. The grannies, it would appear, are fighting back against a reign of terror in Belleville that has seen half a dozen of them murdered by killers unknown. Into this tense situation stumble Benjamin Malauss ne, professional scapegoat, and his journalist lover Julie. In Pennac s frenetic and very funny thriller, drug dealers, OAPs, assorted criminals, a Vietnamese plainclothes detective and his cherubic partner, Malauss ne s large and extended family, and the resourceful scapegoat himself battle to make sense of the killings. Little does make sense in the anarchic world that Pennac has created but somehow, when the competing factions finally collide, the loyalty and decency of ordinary (and not so ordinary) people contrive to vanquish villainy.
