An incredible and fascinating mix of mystery and love carried too far.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
International mystery fans will be happy to hear about mystery and thriller publisher Le French Book's new book release: another Paris police procedural by award-winning author Frédérique Molay. She’s been called “the French Michael Connelly,” and this second in the series, Crossing the Line, confirms her talent in portraying France’s elite detectives solving crimes in the French capital.
Crossing the Line has been called "highly entertaining" (Thinking about Books), a "fresh take" (Booklist) and "just the ticket" (Publishers Weekly).
Just how far would you go for your loved ones?
It’s Christmas in Paris and Chief of Police Nico Sirsky is back, in love and rearing to go, when he’s handed an odd case. Med school students sometimes play inappropriate pranks, but when a note shows up hidden in the tooth of a severed head, nobody's laughing, and it's Police Chief Nico Sirsky's job to find out if something more sinister is afoot. He and his team of crack homicide detectives follow the clues from an apparent suicide, to an apparent accident, to an all-out murder as an intricate machination starts breaking down. Just how far can despair push a man? How clear is the line between good and evil?
