Ancien du 36, désormais en poste à Marseille, Henri Saint-Donat est confronté à son premier « barbecue », règlement de comptes en vogue parmi les trafiquants de la cité phocéenne, quiconsiste à enfermer un corps dans le coffre d’une voiture à laquelle on met le feu. Flanqué d’équipiers hauts en couleur, le commandant commence l’enquête, mais la piste de la guerre des gangs ne donne rien. Lorsque l’identité de la victime est enfin confirmée, les choses prennent un nouveau tour : Henri a connu cette personne autrefois à Paris, et elle n’avait pas du tout le profil pour finir sa vie dans une voiture incendiée par des dealers marseillais ... Né en 1966, Christophe Gavat est commissaire divisionnaire, en poste en Guadeloupe. En trente-deux ans de police, il a traversé la France, ces grandes affaires qui vous happent et ces petites du quotidien qui vous marquent. Il a déjà publié deux témoignages et un roman. Son premier livre a été adapté par Olivier Marchal pour France 2.

Hello! Marseille, a city in the South of France, needs no introduction. It is remembered for precisely the things it wishes everyone to forget - a tragic history of violence and poverty due no fault of its own. In most of Marseille there are divergent scenes, the chaotic and savage yet beautiful streets and natural landscapes amalgamate in cohesion, into an unparalleled version of France. You will encounter in the first chapter, the beautiful natural landscapes around the Calanques that dot the Mediterranean coastline in the South of France. The second chapter throws a spotlight on a variety of street scenes, a capsule of the essence of the daily lives. These soft, sublime moments are lived surrounded by the romance of the Mediterranean sun and sea.Here, the old and new collide in a sweeping sensation of grandeur and naivete, finding exciting possibilities in cohabiting with each other, where the mistral winds howl along the long Mediterranean coastline and azure waters lap languidly on pebbled beaches. You notice the scent of pine and thyme in windblown gardens of reds and yellows as the city beckons to yet another stranger from a faraway place, whispering, 'Explore me', making you yearn to experience more in this place of contradiction. Experiencing the city, consuming it piece by piece brings forth myriad emotions, a happiness that borders on ecstasy together with an unfathomable obsession, a glimpse of a breathing, living story. Some places seem familiar at first glance, others are delightfully foreign.Your feelings are not completely understood, and should never be. The Marseille that you will encounter tells a story about a journey across the city through the lens of a film camera. The fragile moments of daily life, embracing you with the light touches of a sunny, smiling place you know you will not forget.Step in, and enjoy your small travel adventure, one photo at a time.

Jim Barnes’s familiarity with the European poetic traditions has been deepened through long periods spent in France, Germany, and Italy, and through his translations of European poetry. In Visiting Picasso he repays Europe for its gifts to him in a series of poems that evoke the lush poetic history that ties European culture together, sometimes darkly. A heightened sense of place and purpose infuses the poems of Visiting Picasso with meaning drawn from actual landscapes, events, and observations.

The first edition of the widely praised Marine Protected Areas for Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises, published in 2005, led to numerous new marine protected area proposals and a number of notable conservation successes around the world. In this completely revised and expanded second edition, new developments in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Pacific are described, as well as future directions for High Seas protection. New sections show how to design and manage MPAs in an ever noisier ocean subject to climate change, increased shipping and hydrocarbon exploration. The process of protected area creation for cetaceans has been accelerated and more than 200 exciting new places are detailed in this edition. This book provides a route map for MPA managers, as well as countries, to meet the ambitious targets for highly protected MPA networks by 2012 and 2020. This book is a key conservation tool and a springboard for worldwide change in human attitudes toward the world ocean where all life originated and where the majority of life on Earth still lives.

Bringing to a close his 'Marseille' trilogy, César (1936) was one of Marcel Pagnol's most significant projects. This text reviews the questions that Pagnol posed in the film, looking at how he reflected the contemporary and artistic culture of the city, around which the trilogy was based. Above all, Stephen Heath looks at César's relation to the contemporary artistic and cultural-historical reality of Marseille, the defining locality of the trilogy and in many ways its main character.

When Adventures on the Wine Route was first published, Victor Hazan said, "In Kermit Lynch's small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read." A quarter century later, this remarkable journey of wine, travel, and taste remains an essential volume for wine lovers. In 2007, Eric Asimov, in The New York Times, called it "one of the finest American books on wine," and in 2012, The Wall Street Journal pro-claimed that it "may be the best book on the wine business." In celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary, Adventures on the Wine Route has been thoroughly redesigned and updated with an epilogue and a list of the great wine connoisseur's twenty-five most memorable bottles. In this singular tour along the French wine route, Lynch ventures forth to find the very essence of the wine world. In doing so, he never shies away from the attitudes, opinions, and beliefs that have made him one of our most respected and outspoken authorities on wine. Yet his guiding philosophy is exquisitely simple. As he writes in the introduction, "Wine is, above all, about pleasure. Those who make it ponderous make it dull . . . If you keep an open mind and take each wine on its own terms, there is a world of magic to discover." Adventures on the Wine Route is the ultimate quest for this magic via France's most distinguished vineyards and wine cellars. Lynch draws vivid portraits of vintners—from inebriated négociants to a man who oversees a vineyard that has been in his family for five hundred years—and memorably evokes the countryside at every turn. "The French," Lynch writes, "with their aristocratic heritage, their experience and tradition, approach wine from another point of view . . . and one cannot appreciate French wine with any depth of understanding without knowing how the French themselves look at their wines, by going to the source, descending into their cold, humid cellars, tasting with them, and listening to the language they employ to describe their wines." Here, Kermit Lynch assures a whole new generation of readers—as well as his loyal fans—that discussions about wine need not focus so stringently on "the pH, the oak, the body, the finish," but rather on the "gaiety" of the way "the tart fruit perfume[s] the palate and the brain."

In 1972 a gold bullion convoy is hijacked in Marseilles. The security trucks and hijackers are swiftly rounded up, but a ton of gold has disappeared. More than twenty years later, Daniel Jacquot receives an unexpected gift from an old fisherman. At the same time, a Marseilles lawyer called Claude Dupont receives an equally unexpected gift from a dying gangland boss. Both gifts point the way to the missing gold and pit Jacquot and Dupont against the Polineaux and Duclos familles, two of the oldest and most feared crime syndicates on the Côte d'Azur. When the Marseilles police become involved following a series of gruesome murders, the investigation is headed by Chief Inspector Isabelle Cassier. An old friend and sometime lover of Jacquot's, Isabelle discovers that the years haven't lessened her longing for the maverick Marseilles cop, and that her feelings for him are far from professional. Together they embark on a cut-throat hunt for the gold, with hit-men from the Polineaux and Duclos clans hot on their heels. But after nearly thirty years, is the gold still there? And if it is, who will get to it first?

Strasbourg The yellow and green rose, and the pink rock, The chestnuts blooming, the cobblestone square, Our Lady’s tower rising everywhere, Dark timbered fronts; the mechanical clock Whose rooster crows three times for Peter’s flock, The Apostles, the old man’s and the child’s share Of time—aspire I’d say to make me stare And stop. I praise what I might otherwise mock, The locked contingencies, the stock of losses, Bright liquidity everywhere channeled, A storied cityscape of destinies Averted as when, turning, a young Turk tosses His hands in the air and my chest’s pummeled, “My brother, forgive me!” and my thoughts freeze. In Watch, Greg Miller describes a fresh purposefulness in his life and achieves a new level of poetic thinking and composition in his writing. Artfully combining the religious and secular worldviews in his own sense of human culture, Miller complicates our understanding of all three. The poems in Watch sift layers of natural and human history across several continents, observing paintings, archeological digs, cityscapes, seascapes, landscapes—all in an attempt to envision a clear, grounded spiritual life. Employing an impressive array of traditional meters and various kinds of free verse, Miller’s poems celebrate communities both invented and real. Praise for Iron Wheel “Miller demonstrates that what Eliot said about reading a poem may be equally true of writing them: the best thing ‘is to be very, very intelligent’ and intelligence is not the same as erudition. Whether the world is made, found, or named, Miller offers an engaging portrait of things as they are.’’—David Orr, Poetry
