"Follows the fortunes of a young, gauche, and fervent Catholic priest who is a misfit in the world and in his church, creating scandal and disharmony wherever he turns. His insight into the inner lives of others and his perception of the workings of Satan in the everyday are gifts that fatefully come into play in the priest's chance encounter with a young murderess, whose life and emotions he can see with a dreadful clarity, and whose destiny inexorably becomes entangled with his own."--P. [4] of cover

A murky business = Une ténébreuse affaire by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

24 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set earlier than most of Balzac's Comédie Humaine, the novel covers the years 1803-6, when Napoleon was making himself first Consul and then Emperor. The inclusion of Napoleon himself, as well as figures like Talleyrand and Fouché, makes this a historical novel. But it is also an early example of the detective story, in which the sinister, implacable police agent, Corentin, stalks his way towards vengeance on his aristocratic enemies."--Back cover

Le vol. 1 rassemble les ##Contes drolatiques## et les textes qui témoignent des premiers essais philosophiques, romanesques, dramatiques et poétiques de Balzac, c'est-à-dire l'ensemble des écrits retrouvés pour la période 1818-1823, à l'exception des "romans de jeunesse". Le vol. 2 couvre la période 1824-1834, divisée en trois pour rendre compte de la "transformation" de l'auteur qui, de "jeune plumitif besogneux", devient écrivain de mérite et de talent. Le lecteur y rencontre Balzac publiciste, Balzac entre histoire et roman, Balzac faisant l'expérience du journaliste oeuvrant dans la presse légitime, puis tentant de concilier journalisme et philosophie.
