She thus embarks on an entirely new career path- Patience becomes 'the Godmother'.

This is not life in the French idyll of postcards and stock photos. With a gallery of traffickers, dealers, police officers and politicians who are more real than life itself, a sharp and amusing gaze on everyday survival in contemporary France, and an unforgettable woman at its centre, Hannelore Cayre's bestselling novel shines a torchlight on a European criminal underground that has rarely been seen.
