It's Christmas in Paris. Chief of Police Nico Sirsky returns to work after recovering from a gunshot wound. He's in love and rearing to go. His first day back has him overseeing a jewel heist sting and taking on an odd investigation. Dental students discovered a message in the tooth of a severed head. Is it a sick joke? Sirsky and his team of crack homicide detectives follow the clues from an apparent suicide, to an apparent accident, to an all-out murder as an intricate machination starts breaking down. Just how far can despair push a man? How clear is the line between good and evil? More suspense and mystery with the Paris Homicide team from the prizewinning author Frédérique Molay, the "French Michael Connelly." This is the second in the prize-winning Paris Homicide series.
Called, "the French Michael Connelly," Frédérique Molay graduated from France's prestigious Science Po and began her career in politics and the French administration.

From the Author

"When I learned to read, it was like a revelation. It was incredible to me to discover that letters formed words, then sentences and, finally, stories, stories that take you into a parallel world, a fourth dimension, a land of dreams-or even nightmares. Very quickly, I became intrigued by the mechanisms of suspense that keep readers turning the pages of a book. So, I made a wish: to discover this power granted to novelists so that I too could make others feel such strong emotions. To do that, I wrote my first novel when I was eleven years old. It was a story about a child-killing cat."

Editorial Reviews

"A sophisticated murder mystery published and translated by a former Durango resident who is finding terrific talent to bring to U.S. crime readers. This is a police procedural that twists, turns and is stitched together by a gossamer thread. We're lucky that Anne Trager can package these wonderful writers for us." -The Durango Herald"I liked this police procedural set in Paris. Paris was well portrayed as was the differences in police work in France and the U.S. It is the second in series, and I recommend reading The 7th Woman first. I just stared reading The 7th Woman. The crimes are also interesting." - Bookseller recommendation"From the Paris setting to the autopsy scenes, Molay's descriptions add believable imagery to this page-turner mystery...It speeds up nicely when she inserts a series of plot thickeners that give the story complexity and depth. When more dead bodies, puzzling clues, and conflicting character motivations get thrown into the fray, the action heats up, and the book is suddenly a page-turner. Francophile mystery lovers who are also fans of police procedurals will find Crossing the Line, the second in the Paris Homicide series, a satisfying read. It's a novel to be devoured in one sitting with the lights on." -Foreword Reviews"Translation from the original French... this seamlessly translated novel is as good as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Set in Paris with significant cultural markers and historical artifacts...It is a thrilling adventure in a world people spend a life time dreaming about. The city of love, the historical ambiance adds significantly to the story." -5-star Goodreads review
