Description
Leper Tango is an end of millennium tale of an ambulance chasing lawyer who uses his ill-gotten gains to whore and drink in Paris, where he falls for a dead-end, suicidal femme fatale named Sheba. The first part of a trilogy of novels (The Graveyard Of The Innocents), some set in Europe and others set in Quebec, Leper Tango recounts the lunar trajectory of Franck Robinson - a self-confessed member of "the despised and despicable sub-species of skirt-chaser known as the john." During one of Franck's regular free-falls into the Parisian night, he meets Sheba, who moves from being Franck's favourite hooker to being Franck's obsession.
