In the summer of 1928, an Amherst Professor takes a sabbatical in order to live and write a novel. Once in Paris he finds, through his Aunt Minervas connections, everyone ... from F. Scott Fitzgerald, to King Vidor, to James and Nora Joyce ... including two aristocratic French twins, handsome Theophile and lovely Irene.

Our hero is enthralled by Paris, as well as by the twins and their mother Eugenie, and her lover Nicolae, an illegal immigrant from Romania. He pitches ideas for his novel to F. Scott Fitzgerald, learns the art of Parisian party bavardage, and finds himself experiencing explosive physical and emotional passion for the first time in his life. The novel culminates in a tragedy in the park of Rambouillet Palace, the official summer home of the French President ...

and our professor leaves Paris, a man without a novel or love, and returns to the life he had hoped to leave behind. Rich with McHenrys sense of place and ability to capture the nuance of characters, haunting sensuality, profound wit and the beauty of summer Paris, The Inquest is a tour de force: a superb novel about the soul smashing power of passion, and how the heart is, indeed, a lonely hunter.
