Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cross between The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and A Year in Provence, this ingenious thriller gets stunning raves from one and all:

“Unforgettable . . . combines elements of Agatha Christie and Robert Ludlum.”

“A riveting murder mystery.”

---France Today

“Steiner sketches such a rich life for his tiny town that he makes you want to get on the next plane.”

---Chicago Tribune

“A beautiful crime novel.”

---Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author of Nightlife

“A page-turner---like a good Alan Furst or Graham Greene novel.”

---The Washingtonian

“Louis Morgon is a marvel.”

---Olen Steinhauer, author of Victory Square

Le Crime est superbe.”

---Jim Fusilli, author of Hard, Hard City

Former State Department expert Louis Morgon finds a murdered body on the doorstep of his charming little house in France, and he and the local gendarme team up to solve the murder. Thriller and mystery lovers: Bon appetit!
