In front of reporters from around the world, excavators uncover a skeleton. Could it be the artist's own son? And does that death have anything to do with the current string of nightclub murders by the "Paris Butcher"?

From the Author

"In this book, I wanted to grab the readers right from the start and not let go. The idea for the plot came to me after reading an article about artist Daniel Spoerri digging up the remains of one of his 'tableaux pièges'-a hundred or so guests were invited to an outdoor banquet that was then buried to be exhumed many years later. I immediately imagined the banquet and a body being found. Then as usual, I got started questioning specialists, including my favorite coroner. With every book, I really want readers to discover something they don't know."
