    Sophie Duguet is losing her grip. Haunted by visions from her past of her loving husband, who committed suicide after a car accident. One morning she wakes to find Leo, the child in her care, strangled in his bed by Sophie's own shoelaces. She can remember nothing of the night before. Could she really have killed him? She flees in panic, but this only cements her guilt in the eyes of the law. Not long afterwards it happens again - she wakes with blood on her hands, with no memory of the murder committed.

    Dès le premier meurtre, épouvantable et déroutant, Camille Verhœven comprend que cette affaire ne ressemblera à aucune autre. Et il a raison. D'autres crimes se révèlent, horribles, gratuits... La presse, le juge, le préfet se déchaînent bientôt contre la "méthode Verhoeven". Policier atypique, le commandant Verhoeven ne craint pas les affaires hors normes mais celle-ci va le placer totalement seul face à un assassin qui semble avoir tout prévu. Jusque dans le moindre détail.

Worse still, the press seem to have it in for him - his every move is headline news.

    In Irene Lemaitre ingeniously uses five contemporary and classic literary murder scenes - from William McIlvanney's Laidlaw to Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho - as the framework on which to craft a diabolical prequel to his award-winning novel Alex. Camille Verhoeven, whose diminutive stature belies his fierce intensity, has reached an unusually content (for him) place in life. But when a new murder case hits his desk - a double torture-homicide - Verhoeven is overcome with a sense of foreboding.

    Sophie Duguet - young, successful, and happily married - thought at first she was becoming absentminded when she started misplacing her mail and forgetting where she'd parked her car the night before. But then, as her husband and colleagues pointed out with increasing frustration, she began forgetting things she'd said and done, too. And when she was detained by the police for shoplifting, a crime she didn't remember committing, the confusion and blackouts that had begun to plague her took on a more sinister cast.

    Winner of the CWA International Dagger. In kidnapping cases, the first few hours are crucial. After that, the chances of being found alive go from slim to nearly none. Alex Prevost – beautiful, resourceful, tough – may be no ordinary victim, but her time is running out. Commandant Camille Verhoeven and his detectives have nothing to go on: no suspect, no lead, rapidly diminishing hope. All they know is that a girl was snatched off the streets of Paris and bundled into a white van. The enigma that is the fate of Alex will keep Verhoeven guessing until the bitter, bitter end.

    "À la fin de décembre 1999, une surprenante série d'événements tragiques s'abattit sur Beauval, au premier rang desquels, bien sûr, la disparition du petit Rémi Desmedt. Dans cette région couverte de forêts, soumise à des rythmes lents, la disparition soudaine de cet enfant provoqua la stupeur et fut même considérée, par bien des habitants, comme le signe annonciateur des catastrophes à venir. Pour Antoine, qui fut au centre de ce drame, tout commença par la mort du chien..."
