Quite a surreal novel that is set in a time that might or might be during the Second World War and that is about a young man who might or might be both a collaborator and a member of the resistance – intriguing from first to last.

Eventually one of the major criminals becomes the police lieutenant and this makes the main character’s double agent act – as well as the functions of the police and crime – even more confusing. No trivia or quizzes yet.

The narrator is ordered by his boss, the “Khedive,” to infiltrate a group of men who are forming a resistance to the Germans.
