Debut writer Oscar Reynard offers readers an intriguing work of fiction based on real life that cunningly integrates human behavior, politics, and mystery set against the backdrop of France titled A Clean Pair of Hands. This powerful family saga depicts man’s inclination to tolerate immorality and deceit and how these backfire in due course, with damage not confined to the person directly involved, but roping in all those around him.

This book recounts how members of one modern French family carve out their individual lifestyles with dramatic consequences. Its theme comes at a time when secretive and selfish attitudes towards power, money, and equality are being questioned as individual citizens and presidents the world over are being summoned to account for suspicious actions of the past. Timely and relevant, it is therefore an ongoing story.        

In this gripping saga, readers can follow the life of Michel Bodin, a family man who has learned that wealth is power to be applied in his own individual way. It appears that he has a clean pair of hands. But hidden from the sight and knowledge of many, his wealth is founded in an environment of corruption where successive governments have found it acceptable to cheat their people and line their pockets by fraud. Little does Michel know that he is driving away the ones he values most, subjecting them to much pain and loss. The dire consequences, particularly on the women in his family, gradually surface as the story unravels.

For families and presidents who live dangerously close to an edge where they may lose control, those consequences are not always direct or immediate. They can strike suddenly, unexpectedly and, in many cases, retrospectively.

Loaded with several parallel plots, thrills and intrigues of its own, A Clean Pair of Hands encapsulates topical revelations about how France is dealing with social change and its inheritance of political corruption and what awaits this nation if they remain unaddressed.
