Meurtre Rue Saint-Jacques, A murder mystery in easy French
Alice and Liz, two Americans, decided to spend a week in Paris. They rented a beautiful apartment in the Latin Quarter; they’re ready for their dream vacation! Unfortunately, the day after they arrive, they come home to find their landlord dead in the kitchen…
Extrait – Chapitre 1
Il est quatre heures quinze de l’après-midi quand j’arrive dans la rue Saint-Jacques. Je remarque tout de suite qu’il se passe quelque chose de bizarre.
Deux voitures de police et une ambulance bloquent la rue. Je m’approche d’un des policiers et je lui demande en français :
Excusez-moi. Je vais au 178 rue Saint-Jacques. Est-ce que je peux passer ?
Vous habitez dans l’immeuble ?
Oui.. Non… Je veux dire oui… Je loue un appartement pour une semaine avec une amie. Nous sommes des Américaines. Nous sommes en vacances.
