None of it makes any sense.
A savage attack in the city’s most elegant
neighbourhood. A Sorbonne professor dating a hedge
fund manager. A state-backed bank conspiring to
promote false arrests. A serial seductress who’ll lie
about everything, but not about love. A billionaire
trader who sleeps in flea-ridden hotels. A woman in a
haute couture dress who’d rather have an eighteenth century
book than a Cartier bracelet. A murder suspect
given to speculating about his own guilt.
Franck Guerin of the Brigade Criminelle has a dead
woman on his hands, slain minutes after she walked
out on her lover. And a nagging suspicion that he’ll
never solve the crime until he learns to read the hearts
of those whose lives touched hers.
Which is a lot to ask of a man who has a hard job
deciphering his own.
