Publisher's Summary

Finding murderers is just a day on the job for police captain Nadia Barka. But when a mutilated corpse is discovered in an old baptistery, she's faced with some difficult questions: Who left a young woman's body in a high-security museum in the middle of the night? And where is the victim's heart?

Barka has no leads, until several days later when unassuming computer technician Julien Lombard comes forward, claiming to have had a premonition of the woman's abduction and murder. The ensuing investigation turns up nothing, however, and Julien is just as skeptical about his intel as the police are. But, after another woman goes missing, Barka decides to take a chance and trust in Julien's gift. Does Julien hold the key to preventing another gruesome crime? Working together, can they find the murderer before he steals another heart?

A bit of a potboiler, but fun

This quickly-moving thriller is set in France and reminds me of novels by Sam Christer and others. It's a bit of a stretch to believe certain plot twists, but if you like stories with really creepy villains, you may enjoy this one.

Paranormal mystery, not a cozy

Interesting mystery, employs paranormal connections, but does not rely on this as a gimmick. The interpretation from French to English was stilted. I found myself laughing at word usage until I decided to listen to the story as told by a Frenchman to the best of his abilities. This is a story that could be listened to in the car by the whole family.

It grew on me

Not a big fan of the supernatural, but I listened to all, glad I did. The translation ... Would have preferred more of a noir presentation

Ok read. A lot of names and persons to keep track of. A reminder of the dangers of superficial character and trust

Dark and twisted - LOVED IT!

The writing was great, the narration also good. EXCELLENT twisting whodunit plot with a dark tale of blood sacrafice...what more could you want to curl up with on a weekend?
