      With the solution to all of his problems almost within reach, the mayor of a small French town, a British expatriate, becomes the focus of a national scandal, fraud investigation, counterterrorism manhunt, blackmail scheme and paparazzi feeding frenzy.This story is a delightful romp through the trials and errors of Basil Ackroyd’s life. His ups, downs, advances, retreats, genius and ineptitude. The author has crafted a tale that involves a bit of political intrigue, a touch of mystery, a well [...]

      This book reads like a BBC comedy, in a good way. The characters are quirky, and they create their own mayhem in a confined community in France. The characters and their foibles become the plot elements that move the story forward, with ever- escalating conflicts playing off the various personalities. It took me some time to adjust to the comedic tempo. Once I adjusted I found the tempo of the story telling was a good match for the plot as it plodded and tumbled humorously forward. The story cen [...]

      Quirky characters populate the French countryside in Douglas Spencer Wallis' Futile Deceptions. The story mainly centers around Basil Ackroyd, a corrupt British expat who serves as mayor to a sleepy town in rural France, largely populated by other expats. He is engaged in a wide array of unethical/illegal wheelings and dealings.

      Author Douglas Wallis has penned a sprawling novel set in a French village in which the native French are outnumbered by expats. Farce is an old dramatic form defined as comedy that entertains by creating weird situations. Exaggerated characters, physical humor, and complex improbable plots are typical of farce. As such, farce can't be reviewed by the same standards of other types of fiction. The author delivers on characters larger than life, slapstick type physical gags, and a wild meandering [...]

      Join British ex-pat, now French Mayor Basil Ackroyd in this crazy, bullet-riddled madcap romp as he copes with eccentric characters, out-of-control family members whilst trying to evade the insurance investigator and keep himself from getting blown up or bankrupted. All in a day's work for Durac's finest public servant. Hilarious tongue-in-cheek fun!
