In this Da Vinci Code-esque whodunit, a former forensic scientist and boozy Scot named Enzo Macleod sets out to solve the disappearance of a former advisor to the French prime minister. This he does in part via the magic of Google, which makes for a few dull, computer-bound passages early on. There is also some clunky business concerning a metal detector left behind in Macleod’s apartment by the boyfriend of his daughter (gee, wonder if that will play a crucial role later on?). But this is all largely forgivable thanks to Extraordinary People’s action-packed second half and rather thrilling denouement in the catacombs of Paris.
