Romanesque by Tonino Benacquista( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in French and English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superb writing by Tonino Benacquista, who is a hero of insight, interpersonal skills, tricks in every circumstance, a courage asserted and which makes them caracolate in delirious twists without falling into the clichés. The Will love triumph? Will it cross the frontiers of time? In the 21st century, the adventure of a French couple on the back of a distracted flight across the United States, the Internet, Greyhound car, police sirens and market economy is supposed to be the continuation of The timeless and unshakable love of the poacher and the gleaner. It is infinitely less romantic. Where is their love besides? Too bad that Tonino Benacquista was less inspired to make us vibrate to a passion today--Translation by Babelio :

"It's the start of the 1860s, and the Old West is changing--a change that comes as a shock to the Daltons when they're arrested not by Lucky Luke, but by ... Allan Pinkerton! The man is determined to turn bandit-hunting into a modern, rational business--even at the cost of the American people's personal freedom.
