There’s no rest for Paris’s top criminal investigation division, La Crim’. Who is preying on women in the French capital? How can he kill again and again without leaving any clues? A serial killer is taking pleasure in a macabre ritual that leaves the police on tenterhooks. Chief of Police Nico Sirsky—a super cop with a modern-day real life, including an ex-wife, a teenage son and a budding love story—races against the clock to solve the murders as they get closer and closer to his inner circle. Will he resist the pressure? The story grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the last page, leading you behind the scenes with the French police and into the coroner’s office. It has the suspense of Seven, with CSI-like details, giving a whole new dimension to Paris. [FROM THE PUBLISHER’S WEBSITE]

Praise for The 7th Woman

“Frédérique Molay is the French Michael Connelly.”
— Jean Miot, former head of Agence France Presse
and the French daily Le Figaro

“It’s really an excellent book.
It’s the kind of suspense that makes you miss your subway stop
or turn off your phone once you’ve started it.”

“You barely have time to catch your breath
between turning the pages of this spine-tingling novel.”
Cine Tele Revue
