A murdered mayor. A second body reduced to skeleton and dust. Their public display so horrific that the police are baffled.
Everyone assumes uninterested heir Louis Saint-Blancat will finally settle down and focus on the politics of Toulouse, France. Louis becomes the center of attention in the press as his mother and sister pressure him to follow the family’s political tradition, while all he wants is to track down his father’s killer and return to his globe-trotting lifestyle.
Determined to ferret out the story behind the perplexing assassination that took place at the very center of Toulouse, struggling English journalist Catherine Marty finds an unlikely ally in Louis.
Will the two sleuths discover what is lurking beneath the apparent congeniality of la Ville Rose?
About the Author
When AZF exploded, R.W. Wallace was taking a nap in her studio on campus. The shaking of the ground woke her up, but after a quick check out the window (the red mushroom-shaped cloud wasn't visible yet), she decided she must have dreamed it and went back to sleep. Her only excitement of the day was managing a call to her parents back in Norway to let them know she was okay before they learned about the explosion on the evening news.
It's not much of a story. So she made up The Red Brick Haze instead.
R.W. Wallace grew up in Norway, but has lived half her life in Toulouse, a city in Southwestern France. Since she has always found books more enjoyable in English, that is the language she chooses to write in. R.W. Wallace is fascinated with Toulouse and its history, making it the natural setting and inspiration for her stories.
She divides her time between a busy city life in Toulouse and a laid-back country home at the foot of the Pyrenees with her better half, and two miniature versions of herself.
