Frédérique Molay Talks About Choosing a Hero

Award-winning author Frédérique Molay of the Paris Homicide series—The City of Blood is now out in the world—talks about what inspired her main character Nico Sirsky at the blog Queen of All She Reads. She begins the post with this:

"When an author chooses a hero in a novel, it is hard to distinguish what in that character comes from the author’s own life and what comes from other sources. What I can say is that I wanted the main character in the Paris Homicide series to head up the Paris Criminal Investigation Division. That became clear to me the day I met the actual man in that position, who necessarily inspired the character."
