    Death in the City of Light is the gripping, true story of a brutal serial killer who unleashed his own reign of terror in Nazi-Occupied Paris. As decapitated heads and dismembered body parts surfaced in the Seine, Commissaire Georges-Victor Massu, head of the Brigade Criminelle, was tasked with tracking down the elusive murderer in a twilight world of Gestapo, gangsters, resistance fighters, pimps, prostitutes, spies, and other shadowy figures of the Parisian underworld. The main suspect was Dr. Marcel Petiot, a handsome, charming physician with remarkable charisma.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book. It did have its dry moments, but overall it was a good listen. This is a good one to listen to as long as there isn't anything else commanding your attention as it has a large number of facts introduced in clumps.

    I was not a fan of the French voices the author gave the people, I understand it takes place in France, but it would have been easier to understand, and less choppy, if he had just kept the same accent through the entire book. It made them into caricatures.

    I found it interesting that you knew he did the murders from the beginning. It made the book interesting to see the twists and turns and deceptive traits of Petiot throughout the entire investigation and trial.
