The Scapegoat

The Scapegoat - Daniel Pennac Good Guy with a crazy family and even crazier job gets caught up in bombings where he works. And solves the mystery whodunnit. There's some very human humor and warmth in this mystery novel, and the main character is flawed and unprepared for what happens. It wasn't amazing writing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this easy read.
