“Frédérique Molay is the French Michael Connelly” – Jean Miot, former head of Agence France Presse (AFP).
Winner of France’s prestigious Prix du Quai des Orfèvres prize for best crime fiction, named Best Crime Fiction Novel of the Year, and already an international bestseller with over 150,000 copies sold.
There’s no rest for Paris’s top criminal investigation division, La Crim’. 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? The story grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the last page, leading you behind the scenes with the French police and into the coroner’s office. It has the suspense of Seven, with CSI-like details. You will never experience Paris the same way again!
“A taut and terror-filled thriller with a lightning-quick, sinister plot.” – Robert Dugoni, New York Times bestselling author
“Ratcheting tension won’t let you put the book down.” – Cara Black, bestselling author of Paris mysteries
