: Well - I have absolutely no idea!!! I have never been able to get hold of it! It is not one of his more famous works - and it seems very hard to find. As far as I know, it is a set of 9 or so novels set in the 1820's but that is as much as I can tell you I am afraid.

: Anyone else out there with more information??

Hi -

'Les Mohicans de Paris' was a detective story/mystery.


~The first French novelist who presented a police officer favorably was Alexandre Dumas
when he wrote Les Mohicans de Paris in 1854/55. This book introduced Police detective
Monsieur Jackal, who was remarkable for his introduction into the language the phrase
“Cherchez la femme!" ~

Trivia Question; There's another Six Degrees to LOTM from Dumas. Anyone know what it is? (Or should we add it to our 6 Degrees to LOTM page?)
