This is the first book in 'The Enzo Files' by Peter May. I enjoy reading Peter May's work and decided to start this series which are the only books I haven't read by him. I love the way he writes and he has this way where he actually writes excellent novels but at the same time manages to teach you things. I had previously read his series based in China where I learnt so much about the culture as well as enjoying the series. This time the series is based in France so I expect more of the same.

This is the first book I have read by Peter May and I really enjoyed it. Enzo McLeod is a Scot of Italian descent living in France. He is by no means perfect and that makes him more endearing. If you love a good mystery with clues and puzzles and loads of adventure then grab it and read it!

This is the first book I have read by Peter May and I really enjoyed it.

[Read by Simon Vance] What happened to Jacques Gaillard? The brilliant teacher at the École Nationale d'Administration, who trained some of France's best and brightest as future prime ministers and presidents, vanished ten years ago, presumably from Paris. This ten-year-old mystery inspires a bet -- one that Enzo Macleod, a biologist teaching in Toulouse, France, instead of pursuing a brilliant career in forensics back home in Scotland, can ill afford to lose. The wager is that Enzo can find out what happened to Jacques Gaillard by applying new science to a cold case. Enzo goes to Paris to meet journalist Roger Raffin, the author of a book on seven celebrated unsolved murders, the assumption being that Gaillard is dead. He needs Raffin's notes, and armed with these, he begins his quest. It quickly has him touring landmarks such as the Paris catacombs and a château in Champagne, digging up relics and bones. Then Enzo finds the actual head of Jacques Gaillard. The artifacts buried with the skull set him to interpreting the clues they provide and following in someone's footsteps -- maybe more than one someone -- seeking the rest of Gaillard's remains and reviewing some ancient and recent history. As with any quest, it's as much discovery as detection, and Enzo, despite all his missteps, proves to be an ace investigator, scientific and intuitive, who definitely meets his goals.

After reading the Lewis Trilogy, I decided to give this Scottish/French mishmash a try. I now detect a familiar set of strengths and weaknesses. May is a screenwriter and puts you in the street, or under it, with verve and perfect detail. However, plot lines are contrived, motivations are barely credible and character analyses would just about suffice for Masterpiece Theater. At one point, Enzo McCleod, the protagonist, declines police help to save his estranged daughter because he has been told not to ask for it. The clues, the reasons for them and the tracing of them feel like a board game, and not one you would return to.

To be fair, I could not stay with this book. I read probably a third of it, and I just couldn't keep plowing on. There was nothing that I found interesting or compelling. I have read several other Peter May books and enjoyed them all, but this one is very different and just not particularly interesting. Perhaps someone else can show prove me wrong, but I usually try to give a book every chance to draw me in. This one simply did not in any way.

I really liked the Lewis Trilogy, and thought perhaps I was on to something worthwhile with this series. Wrong. An unlikely protagonist (Scottish/Italian biologist living in France?) and an absurd mystery (a dismembered victim whose body parts are scattered across the continent accompanied by totally obscure clues to where another part may be found) strain credulity. Most of the action involves Google searches, which are inherently boring. Much attention is paid to dropping names and descriptions of various places around Paris and the French countryside, which meant nothing to me. This was a weak homage to Dan Brown and those implausible Nicolas Cage movies about clues hidden in famous documents. Nothing here to make me want to pursue his series. This was one of those books that I read to the end from a sense of obligation to see it to completion. Oddly, the last 30 or so pages (which most reviewers thought were disappointing) was the only part I liked. I'd say "Au revoir, Monsieur McLeod," but that would be misleading since I won't be back.

A Parisian journalist has written a book about seven unsolved crimes. The protagonist, Enzo Macloed, have made a wager that he can solve the most perplexing of these crimes by applying new science. He's trained as a forensic biologist.

The crime turns out to be more gruesome and bizarre than anyone imagined. And solving it involves deciphering clues that are like riddles left by the killer or killers for some unknown reason. These are not clues the reader has hope of interpreting – too arcane and obscure. But Enzo is brilliant, and so is his student assistant – and with the help of the Internet and forensics, they triumph.

So this is a very intellectual mystery, despite the gory nature of the crime.

Enzo's complex relationships add interest. He has a daughter who hates him for good reason and a younger daughter who loves him unconditionally. He left his first wife, and his second wife died. Now there's a new romantic element in his life, a strangely distant and wildly passionate woman who and keeps sending him mixed messages.

This is not my favorite Peter May book. I found the motivation of the crime unbelievable and the clues too convoluted. But the book is well written, and redolent with Parisian atmosphere. I’ll read the next book in the series just to find out what happens next in Enzo's life. He's an engaging character.

Enzo Macleod was challenged to find answers to the cold case of missing Jacques Gaillard who had disappeared ten years prior. The police had no idea whether he’d just vanished or had been murdered – no clues whatsoever. This was a case that Enzo was determined to crack – and with his field of forensics from when he was in Scotland, he knew he was qualified.

Living in France for almost twenty years, Enzo and his teenage daughter Sophie managed well. But he had another daughter living not too distant – Kirsty would have nothing to do with him however. Even on the one occasion he waited for her and begged her to listen to him, she sent him on his way, stating she never wanted to see him again.

The discovery of a dismembered head buried in the vast underground tunnels of Paris, and the clues that accompanied it meant Enzo’s challenge had just deepened. Could he solve the puzzle? And what would it mean if he did? Enzo’s quest was inviting danger – this was one murder that the killer thought he had got away with; and he would do anything to stop Enzo in his tracks…

Extraordinary People is #1 in the Enzo Files series by Scottish author Peter May and I enjoyed it very much. A fast paced thriller with twists and turns to keep the reader on his/her toes; I certainly didn’t guess the identity of the killer until the reveal. Highly recommended.

This book is the first in the Enzo Files series by Peter May. Our protagonist is an English man living and teaching in Cahors France. He becomes involved in investigating a cold case disappearance and presumed murder of a high-profile French man. The victim was not universally liked so suspects are available. Some of the events and the investigation itself may seem unlikely, but it is a well-written story that held my interest. Most of the action is in Cahors or Paris and the French setting is attractive to me. There is action and suspense along with reasonably engaging characters. The resolution was slightly less than satisfactory to me, but the rest of the book offset that. I have already purchased several of the next books in the series which I expect that both my husband and I will read.
