Cezanne’s Quarry
Solange Vernet has been found murdered. A young inexperienced magistrate, Bernard Martin, investigates the crime. Who was the beautiful Solange? Was her murder a crime of passion? Is the spurned artist Paul Cezanne guilty? He has a violent temper and his paintings speak of dark, gruesome deeds. Or was it her lover, Darwinian scholar Charles Westbury, who in a jealous rage took her life? Martin is a charming character whose stubborn quest for justice makes him an unassuming hero. The Blood of Lorraine is the sequel which tells more of Martin’s tale.
