A young girl is found murdered in the Baïnem forest, in the environs of Alger. An upstanding woman leads an investigation. Her relentless struggle leads her right to the downward spiral of a nation ruled by predators, opportunists and the power-hungry. With as much with love as precision, the most celebrated of Algerian writers unveils the obscure elements of this nation, of his people. The magnificent country, made for dreaming, is atrociously disfigured by the insatiable greed of the authorities and their accomplices. They stop at nothing: neither law nor the most abominable of crimes. What're the Monkeys Waiting For? combines all the characteristics of the noir novel: a virulent social critique, a vilification of organized crime, and a suffocating atmosphere.
