Example text

Le commissaire exigerait une visite en règle des ateliers de confection et des tailleurs de Paris. Et enrôlerait de la piétaille en uniforme pour quadriller la zone, tels des troufions en pleine guérilla urbaine. Le pronostic se révéla exact. — On se paye bien sûr les ateliers clandestins, dit N’Diop avec un sourire extra large. — Vous démarrez par eux. — Ça va être un sacré bordel, patron, lâcha Argenson. Ils vont s’égailler comme des lapins en nous voyant débarquer et il va falloir leur courir après.

Au cœur du marasme d’une époque. J’ai connu ça avec Jim Morrison. La première fois que je l’ai rencontré, je ne l’ai pas reconnu. Le dieu californien avait doublé de volume. Je ne savais pas que je venais de papoter avec le symbole d’une jeunesse en plein désarroi. Il faut dire qu’on ne nous recrute pas pour nos qualités intellectuelles, nous les flics.

C’est un flic à la retraite, pas un loup-garou, Serge. — Qui sait ? Le temps l’a peut-être plus abîmé que prévu. Elle aurait fait hurler toutes les meutes de loups-garous de Paris, en pardessus de tweed ou pas. La fatigue de ces dernières journées fondait en sa présence. Il alla dans la chambre, se déshabilla avant de s’allonger sur le lit. Lorsqu’elle apparut sur le seuil, quelques secondes d’éternité plus tard, il constata qu’elle avait eu la même idée. La Seine brassait des vagues pourpres.
