Expected publication: January 18th 2020 by Dundurn (first published August 1st 2012)
From the acclaimed “master of the Quebec thriller” comes an action-packed, breakneck mystery featuring Montreal police detectives Victor Lessard and Jacinthe Taillon, who race to track down a ruthless killer.
When an eccentric homeless man jumps to his death in Old Montreal, the police discover two wallets in his possession: those of a retired psychiatrist who was recently murdered in a bizarre ritual and a powerful corporate lawyer who has vanished. As police detective Victor Lessard and his partner, Jacinthe Taillon, work to solve the separate mysteries, a dark history begins to emerge.
While the pressure builds and the bodies accumulate, dark and disturbing secrets come to light about a pivotal moment in Quebec’s history. But will Lessard and Taillon crack the case in time to prevent the killer from striking again?
This is the third book in the Victor Lessard series by Martin Michaud.
This author and series has never been on my radar before but I was hooked from the very beginning. This is one of those books that you can’t skim. You need to pay attention to all the details and all the alleyways the plot leads you down.
In the beginning you don’t think the Kennedy assassin has anything to do with the case at all. It seems like just a bit of fluff and you scoff to yourself, “yeah, right.” Then as they investigate and as they keep digging deeper the case takes them to places they never thought they’d go.
I like how messy the lives of the detectives are. It makes it all so read and edgy. Definitely a book series I want to dig into more. I just enjoyed the heck out of it. One of my new favorite series of the year.
If you love a good suspense mystery thriller police procedural, check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
