“Those who read the first two books, The 7th Woman and Crossing the Line already know that Frédérique Molay can give the writers of CSI and all police procedurals shows a run for their money. In The City of Blood , Ms. Molay channels Bones, the Fox hit series about forensic anthropology.
...The mystery aspect of the book will keep the readers on the edge of their seats; yet, it is Frédérique Molay’s stunning sense of physical details that make everything come alive! The book transported me to Paris – the sight, the sound, the smell; in my mind’s eye, I was in the French capital. Such is the power of Frédérique Molay’s words.
And because I read the English translation, I also have to commend the translator, Jeffrey Zuckerman. I might be reading English words but I also hear the lyrical lilt of the French language in the translation.
One last note: though I am almost sure that Frédérique Molay is not thinking of becoming a spokesperson of French tourism, she might as well be because her descriptions of the Paris locale are so informative I will not be surprised if she gets quoted in travel books.” —Marienela blog.
