The frozen dead

From Eileen Effrat

Author: Bernard Minier

Title: The frozen dead

This fast paced French thriller has it all—-a decapitated horse hanging from a cable car, three men brutally murdered with similar modus operandi, and patients on the loose from  a  maximum security psychiatric hospital. Commandant Martin Servaz, a city cop from Toulouse, leads the investigation as past nefarious deeds in a small village in the French Pyrenees finally come to roost.  This is a police procedural with some rather grisly details.  Only recently translated into English from the French, this is Minier’s  first novel and I can’t wait for more.
