“Nico Sirsky is back for the third of the Paris Homicide series ... and this time around he needs to solve a 30-year old murder. Thirty years ago an artist buried a banquet table filled with dinnerware, left over foods..and art works of many different people....all in the name of art. A week after the 'burial' the artist's son disappears, never to be seen again.
Modern day .... what all of Paris's art world has been waiting for .... the revealing of what has been buried these past 30 years. One shovel in reveals a human skeleton and it becomes Chief Skirsky's challenge.
He and his team transverse the art world to talk to all of those who attended that fateful dinner. The bones eventually are discovered to be those of the artist's young son. And the chase is on.
There are also several other murders occuring in the same area. Connected ... or a new serial killer loose in the city of Paris?
I really, really like the characters in this series. Along with the mysteries that need to be solved, are also a peek into Nico's life ... both past and present. I find it fascinating how he came to be the man he is today. The author's books are well-written and the characters come to life with her writings. This is third of a series and I hope there are many more to come.” —5-star Netgalley review
