The Art of Murder
One-night love affairs, an intrusive and possessive mother, binge-drinking and smoking nights… At 34, Audrey could consider her life as a failure. Only her job as a police lieutenant keeps her fit.
On a searing day of July, Audrey and her team are called on a crime scene. Franck Tardy, a retired lawyer, was found dead in his fancy flat. His body was mutilated and staged on a banquet table – like a Vanitas. Audrey discovers soon that the man often goes to Parisian SM clubs and that, extremely wealthy, he spent his fortune buying pieces of art.
When a second murder is committed in the same conditions, Audrey knows they face a merciless serial killer. Through the Paris auction houses to SM clubs, Audrey will have to chase this killer before the count increases.
