Review from the Independent newspaper: The Standing Pool, By Adam Thorpe

Adam Thorpe's latest novel enters cosy territory with the story of an English family's escape to rural France. Historians Nick and Sarah Mallinson are charmed by their new home, a remote Languedoc farmhouse.

The swimming-pool water may be as green as "lime jelly", but it's an improvement on their cramped Cambridge terrace. But then the resident gardener, loony Jean Luc, appears and the pastoral idyll starts to falter.
