Book Summary

Paris, November 1891: The body of a barefoot young woman dressed in red is discovered on Boulevard Montmartre. She has been strangled and her face horribly disfigured. That same day a single red shoe is delivered to Victor Legris's Parisian bookshop by a goatherd. Suspecting more than just coincidence, the charming bookseller sleuth and his assistant Jojo are soon searching for the identity of both victim and murderer. Then, a body is discovered in a wine barrel at the same time as a famous performer from the legendary Moulin Rouge is strangled in her apartment. Victor’s investigation takes him and Jojo into the dark alleyways and bustling cafes of the hills of Montmartre, on a trail of evidence that seems to point to a case that shocked the population of Lyons years ago.

Media Reviews

"The good people at Gallic Books have commissioned pretty seamless translations and produced lovely looking editions and for fans of period crime fiction, or indeed of Paris itself, these are thoroughly enjoyable escapist reads that are well worth diving in to. The Montmartre Investigation is not perhaps the first port of call, but it is a worthy addition to the Victor Legris series." - BookGeeks.co.uk
