KIRKUS REVIEW

In France, where most of this takes place, a ""moral person"" is a corporation and in spite of the title and the imprint (Crime Club) this mindless nonsense is bodyless except for an accident and a heart attack. It deals with the extension of EGO, an organization dealing in throwaway everything (fashions, furniture, paper--an idea?) overseas; its president and his stolen art collection, his wife and her seduction, his son and his attempt to get his father's firm, and all of it is trimmed with beaucoup de froufrou. Gallic or galling?
