“Sometimes when you read a book, you can cast the movie in your mind. Daniel Craig would be a great Nico.”

“Chief of Police Nico Sirsky is back and he has a dilly of a mystery to solve. When a work of modern art that was buried thirty years before is dug up, a body is found amongst the artifacts. The shock to the artist increases when it is discovered that the corpse is his son who disappeared shortly after the original event. Life is never easy for Sirsky but he has a triple header on his hands. Not only does he have this old mystery to solve but there is a brutal murderer luring and killing young homosexuals in Paris. To make matters worse, Sirsky's beloved mother has suffered a heart attack and is clinging to life in hospital. The stories are interwoven and the reader can experince the tension and frustration that Sirsky is feeling as he tries to resolve all the issues. He is a compelling character quite charming and intense and very good at his job. Sometimes when you read a book, you can cast the "movie" in your mind. Daniel Craig would be a great Nico. I must admit I am quite a fan of this series and look forward to the next installment.” —5-star Netgalley review
