Smoking kills


How far would you go to enjoy a cigarette? In this witty black comedy, Laurain’s anti-hero can only make smoking pleasurable by committing the ultimate crime…
When head-hunter Fabrice Valentine faces a smoking ban at work, he decides to undertake a course of hypnotherapy to rid himself of the habit. At first the treatment works, but his stress levels begin to rise when he is passed over for an important promotion and he finds himself lighting up again – but with none of his previous enjoyment.
Until he discovers something terrible: he accidentally causes a man’s death, and needing a cigarette to calm his nerves, he enjoys it more than any other previous smoke. What if he now needs to kill every time he wants to properly appreciate his next Benson and Hedges?
 ‘It has the pleasing weirdness that makes Laurain’s novels so appealing.’ The Sunday Times
Hilarious, formidable — and essential packing for any French Summer holiday’ The Daily Mail
‘A brisk black comedy… makes cigarettes seem seductive again, even to committed non-smokers.’ The Guardian
‘A seductively  murderous Parisian tale.’ The Times Crime Club
Smoking Kills is one heck of a book … a romp and a satire and it is a reminder of all that is funny-peculiar about Parisian culture. Read this book. It will be good for your health.’ Shots Magazine
‘This is guaranteed fun’ Publishers Weekly
‘This dark yet comic novel is perfect for readers wanting to enjoy a typically French satirical crime story.’ Living France Magazine
‘This is a real tonic for the soul (…) Smoking Kills is a very black comedy, it is a lot of wicked fun (…) original and playful and entertaining.’ Nudge Books
‘Dark and enjoyable . . . You will puff in pleasure.’ The Book Bag
