Summary
Patience Portefeux, fifty-three, is an underpaid Franco-Arab judicial interpreter for the Ministry of Justice who specializes in telephone tapping. Widowed, wedged between university fees for her two grown-up daughters and nursing home costs for her aging mother, she's laboring to keep everyone's heads above water. Happening upon an especially revealing set of police wiretaps, Patience makes a life-altering decision that sees her intervening in-- and infiltrating-- the machinations of a massive drug deal. It's the first step in an entirely new career path: Patience becomes 'the Godmother'. -- adapted from back cover
