Strange Images of Death (Joe Sandilands Series #8) by Barbara Cleverly

Provence, 1926. Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands is on leave, driving his way south to the Riviera while dropping off his niece at an ancient chateau.

A troubling crime committed just before their arrival leaves a clear message that more violence is to come. To allay panic, Joe agrees to stay on and root out the guilty person. But, despite Joe’s vigilance, a child goes missing and an artist’s beautiful young model is murdered in circumstances eerily recreating a six hundred-year-old crime of passion.

Helped and hindered by a rising star of the French Police Judiciaire, Joe must delve into a horror story from the castle’s past before he can tear the mask from the diseased soul responsible for these contemporary crimes.

From the Hardcover edition.

One of her best. Of course I say that about every new book of hers I read. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are true to the time period she writes in, the characters are true to life. One of the best things is that the stories are always true to the story line in the earlier books. So many times that is not true. The plot and suspense are good and the writing literate. If you have not read any of the Joe Sandiland books before, I suggest that you start at the beginning. They are well worth you time and money.
