The 7th Woman

Gritty Paris homicide mystery.

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?
