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

It felt like lightning had struck him. He couldn’t breathe. His mouth was dry, and his throat tight. He was free-falling. She was wildly attractive: about thirty-five, five and half feet tall, slender, with short auburn hair and brown eyes highlighted by plain eyeglasses. Her voice was soft and steady. She had a keen, friendly and reassuring look in her eyes, and a smile illuminated her face -a magnificent smile. He stared at her intensely, like a pimply teenager entranced by a Playboy cover girl.
