London between the wars was a place of anxiety and uncertainty. After the postwar boom of the 1920s, the after-effects of the stock market crash hit London and, even as the fortunes of the aristocracy went into decline, there was hunger and a rising tide of virulent fascism. It is in this setting that Max, a French journalist looking for his next story, and Lena, an American singer, find themselves in Hedi Kaddour's "Little Grey Lies". Once lovers, but now friends, Max and Lena travel with Lena's new man, Thibault and with Max's barely masked jealousy. Then they meet the striking Colonel Strether, the epitome of military decorum and bearing. An aging war hero, Strether seems to Max to be his best chance at a story, but as the two men talk, it seems Strether may not be who he claims, and the old soldier's past begins to trouble Max and Lena. As in his other work, internationally renowned poet and novelist Hedi Kaddour offers shifting time-frames and kaleidoscopic viewpoints in a mannered metafictional thriller that bears comparison to both Robert Coover and John Le Carre. "Little Grey Lies" is historical suspense at its best.
