"Michel Hartog, a sometime architect, is a powerful businessman and famous philanthropist whose immense fortune has just grown that much greater following the death of his brother in an accident. Peter is his orphaned nephew--a spoiled brat. Julie is in an insane asylum. Thompson is a hired gunman with an ulcerated gut. Michel, known for his kindly interest in the disadvantaged, hires Julie to look after Peter. And he hires Thompson to kill them. Julie and Peter escape. Thompson, gut groaning, pursues. Hunter and hunted make their way across France to the remote mountain estate to which Michel has retreated. Bullets fly. Bodies accumulate. The craziness is just getting started. Like Jean-Patrick Manchette's celebrated Fatale, The Mad and the Bad is a clear-eyed, cold-blooded, pitch-perfect work of creative destruction"--

Une vraie tête à claques, ce Butron. Méchant, prétentieux, naïf, paranoïaque et sadique sur les bords, il voulait tout et tout de suite et se prenait pour un pur. Il se mêla de politique et de complots, pour la rigolade, l'argent, la gloire, et N'Gustro, un leader du Tiers Monde, paya les pots cassés. Butron, floué par les puissants, les barbouzes, les politicards, n'avait aucune chance de s'en tirer. Il ne s'en tira pas. (Fuente: www.gallimard.fr)
