~Synopsis~

In Belle Époque Paris, the morgue is the place to see and be seen … 

"This morning I was called upon to photograph the dead again." So begins the story of Edouard Mas, a photographer's assistant with a detective's soul. Edouard's job is to take pictures of corpses before they are carted off to the Paris Morgue. If the bodies are unidentified, they will be put behind glass for the whole city to view, in a morbid display of lost and found.

Edouard begins to come across more and more bodies stripped of their identification and laid out in methodical poses, and he knows he is dealing with those who dabble in art—the art of death. The morgue—their museum.

Edouard's investigation takes him from the sterile halls of La Salpêtrière to the opulent, smoke-filled soirees of high society, but he must do everything in his power to stop the artists of death, before they go after somebody he loves …

In exquisite prose—so vivid you can almost taste the absinthe and hear the rustling skirts of the Moulin Rouge showgirls—Hunter tells an unforgettable tale of murder and lust in the City of Light.

  1. Morbid display of lost and found - that sounds disturbing and a great backdrop for the story.

    1. I was so tempted to snatch this one up for a review, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day (or week or month, for that matter!).

  3. Is Twitter the only way to enter? I don't have a Twitter account. But it sounds like my kind of read.

  5. Just received the message tha one of my pre-orders has been cancelled because the author postponed the release date to an unknown date. So I will instead spend the money for a digital copy of "The Green Muse".
