"And what kind of poison was it?"
"That's the problem. I have no idea."

Translated by Howard Curtis from the French, this is a crime fiction novel set in 1774 in Paris, France. It is the fourth in the series featuring the hero, Nicolas Le Floch, a police commissioner at the Chatelet.

A plot is in the works to blame Nicolas for the death of his lover, socialite Julie de Lasterieux. In this mystery, he fights to clear his name and find the true culprit.

The book is printed by Gallic of London and was sent to me by the publisher for a future review.


  1. Sounds like an interesting book. I don't have my current read (HALF-PRICE HOMICIDE by Elaine Viets) handy to contribute two sentences from, but it's been a good read.
