The Mule cover

A wholly original, comical thriller following a translator's quest to decipher an untranslatable book, find a missing girl, and clear his name of murder.

Jacky is a translator. He’s a bit of an eccentric. And he can’t quite understand why the alluring and beautiful girl at the bar wants to talk to him.

Even more perplexing is the tattered book she carries with her but won’t let him touch. Written in an indecipherable language—even for him—it contains, quite impossibly, what appear to be photographs of her own murder. When she disappears hours later and the book comes into his possession, suspicion falls on him.

Pursued by the police and armed with nothing but the book she has left behind, an unwavering determination, and the assistance of the world’s most annoying man, Jacky must race through Paris to solve the mystery and find the missing girl.

A wholly original, comical tale of intrigue, betrayal and romance, this is the curious story of the world’s most enigmatic book.
