The violent murder of Laura Vignola sets imaginations ablaze across the 19th arrondissement, one of Paris’ most cosmopolitan, multi-cultural districts.
Laura’s day-dreaming neighbour, Ahmed Taroudant, is the prime suspect, but detectives Rachel Kupferstien and Jean Hamelot are not short of leads. What is the connection between a disbanded hip-hop group and the fiery extremist preachers jostling for attention in the streets? And what is the mysterious new pill that is taking the area by storm?
Karim Miske demonstrates a masterful control of pace and setting as he moves seamlessly between the streets of Paris and the synagogues of New York to reveal the truth behind an horrifying crime.
