Publisher's Summary

Meet Enzo Macleod, and begin the addictive cold-case series from the Sunday Times best-selling author of the Lewis trilogy and Coffin Road.

Paris

An old mystery

As midnight strikes, a man desperately seeking sanctuary flees into a church. The next day, his sudden disappearance will make him famous throughout France. 

A new science

Forensic expert Enzo Macleod takes a wager to solve the seven most notorious French murders, armed with modern technology and a total disregard for the justice system. 

A fresh trail

Deep in the catacombs below the city, he unearths dark clues deliberately set - and as he draws closer to the killer, discovers that he is to be the next victim.

Another great story

Really well narrated and another gripping story. Love Peter May books. They never disappoint. I would love to know where he gets his plot ideas from.

Fabulous of Course

I'm not sure who I love more.... Peter May or Peter Forbes. If you love Peter May's books, this story won't disappoint. However, the constant reference to French geographical locations throughout, nearly drove me mad. So much so, that had I been reading the book instead of listening to it, i'd have given up. Having said that, I look forward to following Enzo Macleod. I just hope to god he doesn't feel the need to tell me the name of every street he walks down.

fantastic story and voice

Peter May's books and Peter Forbe's voice is a match damn hard to beat .
This story is of equal quality and affect as the rest of the Enzo Macleod serie . Gripping and exciting, only if it could just keep going forever more :) .
Loved it

Not a good book from Peter May

I normally like his books but this was like a poor man’s Dan Brown novel.

There is no suspense and the logical leaps that the characters make are nonsensical.

Performance is ok but material is awful

Loved it...

A fantastic macabre treasure hunt with a “tomb raiderish” ending! Listen to it now, can’t wait to listen to the next one. Already downloaded!!!

Intriguing plot

Love the twisted idea for the plot. Could certainly feel the atmosphere in the closing chapters. Narrator is superb.

A huge disappointment

Apologies for writing about myself in the third person, but here goes...

Jess wrote 'this book' on the board and drew a circle around it. She then wrote 'cliched' on the board and drew a circle around it, from this she drew an arrow to the word 'this book'. Looking back she realised she wasn't finished, so with her cantaloupe melons pushing against her shirt, she wrote more words in circles and drew arrows pointing to 'this book', 'predictable', 'one dimensional women', 'irritating daughters - who you don't mind dying', 'stereotypes', 'poorly written' and finally 'random unnecessary French words'. She stood back and looked at her work. She still didn't quite understand the clues, so she typed it in to Google. Thousands of hits showed up and she sighed her cantaloupe breasts moving and straining.

Oh Pete May, what have you done, this is truly dire.

Very disappointed with the narrator who is usually so good.

Very disappointed

I have listened to and read several of Peter Mays books some of which I’ve enjoyed but this one was very poor, formulaic and altogether unforgettable. I would not be inclined to listen to any more in this series

Disappointing

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed several of Peter Mays books I was very disappointed with this one. I suppose it’s all a matter of taste but I simply didn’t warm to, or believe in the main character and I found the storyline predicable and thin.
