Death on the Marais Paperback
Part of the Inspector Lucas Rocco series
She was going to die. She could feel it, her life ebbing away as surely as fine sand through fingers.
The thought caused her more sadness than fear; less a sense of foreboding than a cause to wonder what lay ahead. France, 1963. It's a time of great change in France, not least for Inspector Lucas Rocco.
As part of a nationwide 'initiative' to broaden police operations, he finds himself moved from the Paris metropolis to a small village.
His new patch might be rural, but it's certainly not uneventful: on his first day, he finds a murdered woman wearing a Gestapo uniform lying in a British military cemetery.
When the body is removed by order of a magistrate from the police mortuary before Rocco can finish his investigation, he realises he's up against a formidable enemy.
An enemy who will go to any lengths - even murder - to stop his investigation.
