“This is a fine procedural, with a vividly evoked Paris setting, compelling characters, and plenty of suspense.”

"In the latest Paris Homicide mystery, police chief Nico Sirsky catches an especially tricky case. An artist is hosting a major event, a kind of archaeological dig in which the excavating of objects buried nearly 30 years earlier becomes a form of performance art. But something unexpected is dug up: the remains of a dead man. Could the dead man possibly have a connection to the artist? Or is the deceased the victim of a serial killer currently operating in Paris? Like its predecessors, The 7th Woman and Crossing the Line (both 2014), this is a fine procedural, with a vividly evoked Paris setting, compelling characters (especially the splendidly drawn Sirsky), and plenty of suspense. Readers who enjoyed the first two series entries will definitely want to read this one, and procedural fans who don’t know Sirsky should make his acquaintance now." —Booklist
