Sample text

Clémenti observa le motif photographié en gros plan. Un dragon crachant de la fumée. Tout comme Karim Abdoulazane qui venait d’allumer sa troisième cigarette malgré l’absence de cendrier. Le jeune homme noyait ses mégots dans son gobelet de café à moitié vide et ce mélange écœurait Clémenti qui, la veille, avait forcé sur le gin tonic. Avant leur grand saut, Katia Pachenko et Véronique Étienne étaient droguées jusqu’à l’os. Le rapport médico-légal évoquait un cocktail détonant d’ecstasy et de kétamine.

Monsieur Abdoulazane, laissez-moi vous dire quelque chose de très simple. En ce moment, vous êtes dans mon bureau parce que vous êtes censé nous donner des informations concernant le cadavre du parc Kellermann. – J’ai dit donnant-donnant. Je lâcherai rien si vous remuez pas cette affaire. C’est votre boulot après tout. Clémenti jeta un coup d’œil à ses lieutenants. Argenson était assis sur un bureau et faisait mine de lire des extraits du dossier. Le visage de N’Diop était imperturbable. – Fourrez-le-moi au dépôt, dit sobrement Clémenti.

Un moment. Vous avez parlé des conclusions du dossier détenu par le parquet. Des témoins, des résultats du rapport médico-légal. Comment connaissez-vous ces détails ? Abdoulazane posa son portefeuille sur le bureau de la détective et se cala plus confortablement dans le fauteuil. Il se dit qu’il pourrait tout lui déballer d’un coup. Le commissaire Clémenti, l’Asiatique égorgée, la combine de Marcelin N’Diop. Il était le maître du jeu, après tout. Avec le caractère qu’elle avait l’air de se trimballer, Louise Morvan prendrait peut-être ça comme un défi et mettrait le paquet.
