About this title

Synopsis:

Thirty years on the beat in Montreal's teeming immigrant district have caused Lieutenant La Pointe to develop a tough brand of rough justice that finally fails him

From the Inside Flap:

The Main is Montreal's teeming underworld, where the dark streets echo with cries in a dozen languages, with the quick footsteps of thieves and the whispers of prostitutes. It is a world where violence and brutality are a way of life. To the people of the Main, police lieutenant Claude LaPointe is judge and jury, father confessor and avenging angel. Montreal's police force has changed over time, but LaPointe has not. His commitment to justice is total, as is his devotion to the Main and its underworld community. But when a cold-blooded murderer invades LaPointe's territory, he is forced to examine his long-held beliefs and secrets and to confront his own loneliness and mortality. With a cast of unforgettable supporting characters and an unusual and remarkable hero, "The Main is another gripping tale of death and danger, of action and mystery, by the incomparable Trevanian.
