Brie, the bullet and the black cat
October 1942. You have been invited for dinner at the Official Residence of the Deputy Mayor of Casablanca. Morocco is a colony of France governed by the Vichy French regime. The guest of honour was to have been France’s greatest living mime artist. He fails to arrive, he has been murdered.
I was Nicole Le Grandbutte, the hosts’ daughter, 18, both snob and rebelious.
