Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Set in pre-World War I Paris, this satisfying police procedural feeds off political intrigue in Prussia and the Balkans at the time. Inspector Gautier (Death in the Skies; Death Off Stage) finds his journalist-mistress murdered, but until he begins tracking a British diplomat's runaway daughter, he doesn't realize that the murder may be connected to the victim's journalistic interest in political insurrection. Subsequent killings reinforce the connection and strengthen Gautier's resolve to stop the murderer. Memorable characters, an unhurried plot, well-crafted surrounds, and soothing, elegant prose commend this historical to all collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
