La decade prodigieuse by Claude Chabrol( visu )
4 editions published between 1971 and 2003 in French and English and held by 103 libraries worldwide
In part an oblique hommage to Fritz Lang and Hitchcock this is one of Chabrol's most playful and innovative narratives. He took an Ellery Queen detective story with a metaphysical conceit: the solution hinges on the Ten Commandments. Chabrol interweaves the Christian element, the murder mystery and Greek mythology with its humanising of the gods. The plot, structured in ten acts (each one day), brings together an outsider Paul, a philosophy lecturer replacing the detective in the fiction, an unstable young man, Charle, and Orson Welles as his billionaire father, Theo, who plays God (shades of Kane and Mr. Arkadin) and disrupts the relationship between Charles and his stepmother Helene and engineers a tragedy
