4.5 stars (release date April 3, 2018)
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is a new police crime series set in Paris centering on disgraced police officer Anne Capestan. She is suspended from duty for shooting and killing a suspect. Fearing that she is about to be fired, Capestan reports to HQ to learn her fate and is surprised by being assigned to run a new unit that will focus on cold cases. The catch? The other team members are a group of misfits, troublemakers and unfit police officers that can’t be fired and no one wants in their unit.
Determined to make the most of it, the few officers that actually report for duty start to look into several old murders. To their surprise, they develop new leads that could possibly solve the cold cases and earn them a small modicum of respect from their superiors. The characters are well developed, the story is well written and there is plenty of action and twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book. It is fast-paced and so interesting that you won’t want to put it down. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
