A classic suspense plot executed fabulously, this book should not be read in the dark! The chilling murders and ruthless killer will have readers jumping at every sound. With rapid paced dialogue, strong character development and detailed scenes and settings this novel is immersing. There is perhaps a few too many red herrings and some of the descriptions of the victims can be gruesome, but it is to be expected, and even welcomed, in this genre.

Chief of Police Nico Sirsky has seen it all, in Paris's top criminal investigation division, La Crim'. That is until a serial killer starts torturing women to complete his sick ritual. The killer leaves very little clues but does start to leave personal messages using his victim’s blood. The messages are addressed to Nico and promise that seven women will die. Nico knows that time is running out and the women in his life are in danger. Can he find the killer before the killer finds him? (LE FRENCH BOOK, Sep., dl., $4.99)
