EXTRAIT

La imprecise s’écrasa contre le flanc métallique du porte-conteneurs. Une goutte d’eau salée ricocha sur sa joue. Florent l. a. chassa du bout des doigts. Posant son rouleau en équilibre sur le pot de peinture, il contempla l. a. danse folle de l’océan et du vent. Un strive against de titans. Depuis deux jours, le SO Lausanne subissait le mauvais temps de l. a. mer de Chine méridionale. Le bâtiment de los angeles marine marchande suisse avait quitté Singapour une semaine plus tôt. Ballotté par les flots, il faisait cap sur Brisbane. Apercevant Serge Vulrien, le bosco, qui lui jetait un regard noir, Florent se dépêcha de se remettre au travail. Deux mois plus tôt, il avait embarqué avec le statut de mousse. Le plus bas maillon de l. a. chaîne. Peu lui importait. Par l. a. fenêtre du taxi qui le menait de l’hôtel au port, Florent aperçut l’immense bateau recouvert de conteneurs multicolores. Soixante mille tonnes, se souvint le jeune homme.

CE QU'EN PENSE l. a. CRITIQUE

« Après Séance fatale, un foremost roman paru aux variants los angeles Plume Noire à Broc, l’écrivain confirme, en explorant les arcanes de los angeles marine suisse, qu’il sait mener une histoire policière costaude. (…) En eau salée est un huis clos aux airs de reportage, aéré par des récits parallèles, comme celui qui narre l’évasion aventureuse de deux marins. Captivante, l’intrigue roule sur des facets insoupçonnés des voyages en mer, tels les changements d’horaire. Cela permet des retournements de state of affairs inouïs. los angeles police lausannoise a-t-elle le pied marin? l. a. réponse s’avère nuancée… et humaine: nul enquêteur n’est parfait. (La Liberté, sixteen mai 2015).

A PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR

Fabien Feissli, journaliste au Matin, est un passionné de littérature policière. Après un optimal roman situé dans l. a. ville de Lausanne, qu’il connaît comme sa poche, il situe sa seconde intrigue en haute mer.
