Overview

Julie is bored with her office in the French bank where she works -- until the day she leaves on a business trip to London and meets Milo, a young computer hacker. Over the course of that weekend, Julie finds a USB drive. Back in Paris, Julie remembers the drive she found. It turns out to be a document written by Mortimer Diggler, a well-known and respected journalist -- a document that accuses Stuart Shelby, a Hollywood favorite, of being a serial killer!

Julie decides to spice up her boring life by playing a little game, which quickly gets out of hand. She soon finds herself in London, working for Stuart Shelby, searching for new victims for the killer star. But is he just insane, or is he really a murderer? And is there any truth to his stories about curing his bizarre anemia with the blood of his victims? And if what Shelby says is true, what does that mean... could she become Shelby's prey... and what if Shelby is a sort of vampire, immortal...

Musicians call it "the art of counterpoint" - creating multiple melodies that sound simultaneously several octaves apart. In her own way, Nathalie Suteau practices this art, with all the subtlety it demands, for she is not content to share in her characters' joy at the brusque acceleration of their lives and in the background, she orchestrates a disturbing score. Thus, all the lives caught up in this strange plot are touched by the dark side that comes with an existence that is free from boredom and banality -- risk, anguish, and Death as a constant companion.

Meet the Author

Nathalie Suteau's life has been unique on many levels. The word that best describes her is "Freedom" . Freedom to write, to think, to live as she pleases.

Born in Montpellier, France, her childhood was filled with stories and legends from her grandmother's region. One in particular that she remembers is the story of the Beast of Gevaudan. Nathalie's taste for the fantastic was born out of those childhood stories. Her passion developed further in her teenage years when she became an avid reader of English and American gothic and fantasy literature, and in the mid-70s, her father bought a VCR and she was able to engross herself in the many horror and fantasy films of the period. The hard rock/glam revival of the late 80s allowed her to discover the works of Anne Rice.

Nathalie earned her Master's Degree in Management Sciences from the University of Paris-Dauphine, and afterward worked in a variety of fields -- first in cinema, and then, disappointed, she turned toward the world of finance, where she worked for several investment banks. With a tranquil and carefully mapped-out life in front of her, she finally chose independence and in 1997, she opened her own translation agency, Artfully.
As a translator and localizer, Nathalie specializes in technical documents and software, and she has worked for many prestigious clients, including Adobe, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard and Daimler-Chrysler.

Free to manage her own time, desires and passions, she continues to read, engross herself in films and follow her favourite football team -- Liverpool FC. She also enjoys sports, especially surfing, and travelling.

In the early 2000s, she began volunteering for the development of independent cinema -- she helps young directors promote their short films. One day, a director forwarded her an announcement for a vampire-themed short story contest, and that is where it all began! Nathalie never suspected that she too was capable of being creative, much less writing a novel. It only took her three days to write the short story. She didn't win the contest, but she did finish among the six finalists. Her short story then served as the basis for her first novel, Celebrity Blood.
