A great French Police Procedural of suspense and horror. The characters caught my attention at once. At times I needed to put the book down to handle the descriptions of the murder. The twists and turns held my attention throughout the book. I did not know the murderer until revealed.Chief of Police...
I was expecting to love this book, but found the characterization shallow and the plot obvious. I knew whodunit as soon as he was introduced. Too bad. Could have been a good book.
