SYNOPSIS

Jacques Forêt, a former gendarme turned investigator, delves into the murky world of commercial sabotage – a place where people lie and misrepresent, and where information is traded and used as a threat.
The Vaux organisation is losing contracts and money, and Jacques is asked to undertake an internal investigation. As he works through the complexity of all the evidence, he finds more than he bargained for, and his own life is threatened.
When a body of a woman is found, it appears to be suicide. But as the investigation takes another turn, Jacques suspects there is more to it.
Who is behind it all…and why? Will Jacques find the answer before another person ends up dead?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Messandrierre Angela Wren Angela Wren
I’m an actor and director at a small theatre
a few miles from where I live in Yorkshire in the UK.
I did work as a project and business change manager
– very pressured and very demanding –
but I managed to escape and now I write books.
I’ve always loved stories and story telling
so it seemed a natural progression, to me, to try my hand at writing.
My first published story was in an anthology,
which was put together by the magazine ‘Ireland’s Own’ and published in 2011.
I particularly enjoy the challenge of plotting and planning different genres of work.
My short stories vary between contemporary romance, memoir, mystery and historical.
I also write comic flash-fiction
and have drafted two one-act plays that have been recorded for local radio.
My full-length stories are set in France where I like to spend as much time as possible each year.

SYNOPSIS

When a major Parisian modern art event gets unexpected attention on live TV, Chief of Police Nico Sirsky and his team of elite crime fighters rush to La Villette park and museum complex. There, renowned artist Samuel Cassian is inaugurating the first archeological dig of modern art, twenty-seven years after burying the leftovers of a banquet. In front of reporters from around the world, excavators uncover a skeleton. Could it be the artist’s own son? And does that death have anything to do with the current string of nightclub murders by the “Paris Butcher”? On the site of the French capital’s former slaughterhouses, the investigation takes Nico and France’s top criminal investigation division from artists’ studios to autopsy theaters and nightclubs in hopes of tracking down the murderer who has turned this Paris park into a city of blood.

TOUR QUOTATIONS

The Discerning Reader

Frédérique Molay strikes again with another exciting installment in this thrilling series. With vivid descriptions of Paris, plenty of historical facts along with intricate police details and procedures all creating a fast paced riveting narrative.

Musings of a Writer and Unabashed Francophile

I’m finding I can’t quite do without this French police chief, nor without the twists and turns as he tries to figure out the solution. I think “City of Blood” is quite possibly my favourite of the three books in this series (in English) so far.

Queen of All She Reads

Ms. Molay does a fantastic job continuing to develop her characters.
I really enjoyed The City of Blood and can’t wait to read what Ms. Molay writes for us next.

Words And Peace

Choosing a famous park in Paris as her setting, famous French writer Frédérique Molay assigns another intriguing crime investigation to chief of police Nico Sirsky. Mix blood, art, and even religion, and you have an irresistible page-turner.

I Wish I Lived in a Library

While the murders are very brutal and everything is clearly dealt with there’s a distance to the book itself that will keep you turning pages but won’t give you nightmares.  The writing style approaches the murders from almost an academic perspective even though everyone is involved is very motivated to solve the murders.

Valli’s Book Den

The City of Blood is a short and interesting police procedural that could be read in a few hours. Like the earlier novel in the series ‘Crossing the Line’, this novel also has an interesting setting ‘The city of blood’, formerly abattoir of the City, and invokes the place with interesting information.
