Ah Paris. The City of Light. The city everyone wants to fall in love in. The city of homicidal murders.
Who is preying on women in the French capital? How can he kill again and again without leaving any clues?
There’s no rest for Paris’s top criminal investigation division. Who is preying on women in the French capital? How can he kill again and again without leaving any clues? A serial killer is taking pleasure in a macabre ritual that leaves the police on tenterhooks. Chief of Police Nico Sirsky–a super cop with a modern-day real life, including an ex-wife, a teenage son and a budding love story–races against the clock to solve the murders as they get closer and closer to his inner circle. Will he resist the pressure? This edge-of-your-seat police procedural was named Best Crime Fiction Novel of the Year and sold over 150,000 copies internationally.
Paris mystery author Cara Black liked the “ratcheting tension” and NYT bestseller Robert Dugoni enjoyed the “lightning-quick plot”—he likened Sirsky to Renko in Gorky Park. This is a book for fans of police procedurals and forensics, for fans of international settings. It’s grittier than Simenon, but Sirsky works in the same mythic headquarters and is rather nostalgic about his predecessor.
