"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.
