Author:
Called, ""the French Michael Connelly,"" Frédérique Molay graduated from France's prestigious Science Po and began her career in politics and the French administration. She worked as chief of staff for the deputy mayor of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, and then was elected to the local government in Saône-et-Loire. Meanwhile, she spent her nights pursing a passion for writing she had nourished since she wrote her first novel at the age of eleven. After The 7th Woman took France by storm, Frédérique Molay dedicated her life to writing and raising her three children. She has five books to her name, with three in the Nico Sirsky, Chief of Police series.

Translator:
Anne Trager has lived in France for over a quarter of a century, working in translation, publishing and communications. In 2011, she woke up one morning and said, “I just can’t stand it anymore. There are way too many good books being written in France not reaching a broader audience.” That’s when she founded Le French Book to translate some of those books into English. The company’s motto is “If we love it, we translate it,” and Anne loves crime fiction, mysteries and detective novels.

    Paris, France. Well, dive into the life and world of the French

    Paris, France. Well, dive into the life and world of the French super cop, Chief of Police, Nico Sirsky, when one after the other female bodies appear on their computer screens. What begins as just one murder, change into six others within six days, with the victims being closer in relation to Nico Sirsky. Brutal, ruthless and macabre. That is the only words that can describe the serial murders by someone who knows his stuff. And he has a grudge against Nico Sirsky.

    Divorced, lonely, and suddenly in love, Sirsky has his hands full, especially when his ex-wife turns off on her own side track and leaves his teenage son for him to raise. The sources of his emotional pirouettes over the hot coals of doubt and desperation, are lack of sleep, as well as too many people in his inner circle becoming suspects.

    A page-turner, a sleep-stealer, a grim adventure! But an excellent addition to the crime thriller genre.

    It was written in good taste, not causing the loss of one thunderous drama beat in the highly suspenseful narrative

    Great..with one regret.

    It seems a little slow in the beginning. I don't know if its the translation from french to english that makes the writing a bit rough or if that is common for french literature. BUT the characters were so captivating and described in such detail I thought I personally knew them. The story line was great. Once you get into the book it really picks up and turns out excellent!
    Only one regret for reading it is I don't think they have the rest of cheif sirsky's series translatted into english. I have yet to find them. If I could I would read them all he's a great character to follow.
    Highly recommend, if you won't be as disappointed as me if you can't read the other books.

    Great but grisly story.
    I only have one small complaint and that is the ending wrapped up almost too quickly.

    A good suspense story, a police procedural with the police chasing a serial killer. This killer was killing a woman a day and taunting the police with notes, clues leading to family members and other people involved with the investigation.

    I haven't read many French police procedurals so it was interesting to see how their investigative team was set up.

    Of course, the killer is caught in the end.
