“Literate crime trillers don’t get much better than this.” —Publishers Weekly (starred) on L’Assassin
Peter Steiner's previous novel in this series, The Terrorist, was named one of the Top Ten Crime Novels of the Year by Booklist, and this new book is even better. During World War II, in the French village inhabited by Steiner's series detective Louis Morgon, some people collaborated while others resisted. Decades later, Louis Morgon finds evidence hidden under the floor of his house of a long-ago massacre of the town's resisters. He inadvertently unleashes a firestorm of danger, deception and murder.
