“Once again an absorbing page-turner based on an unusual original murder.”

This is a more mature, assured read than the first two in this series about Paris Chief of Police, Nico Sirsky. As in the other cases, the cool, detailed explanation of both crime and procedure is important to the structure of the story as well as to the discovery of the murderer. In this particular case the detective work is woven around Nico's concerns for his mother's health and the success of one becomes contingent upon a satisfactory resolution of the other. Once again an absorbing page-turner based on an unusual original murder.” —4-star Netgalley review
