(The third book in the Serge Morel series)
A novel by

A Roma boy is killed on a housing estate, in a suburb outside Paris. Shortly afterwards, a young man of Algerian origin is killed. Amid rising social unrest on the estate, Chief Inspector Serge Morel, a star of the French criminal brigade, is brought in to investigate.

Praise for Death in the Rainy Season:

"... the engaging Morel is emerging as a detective the great Aurelio Zen would admire . . . Jaquiery may just be on her way to assuming the mantle of the much-missed Michael Dibdin." (Daily Mail)

"Jaquiery is impressive in portraying a country trying hard, but finding it difficult, to escape the legacy of its bloody past." (The Times)

"With a fine sense of place, some excellent characters and complex plotting, this is a beautifully crafted crime novel and compelling read." (Choice)

"Well written with an intelligent plot and cleverly drawn characters, this gripping thriller will not only keep you guessing but has a suitably surprising and intriguing ending." (Book of the Month, Candis)

Praise for The Lying-Down Room:

"Jaquiery's haunting debut The Lying Down Room was a joy to read and review, so much so that it was second in my Top Read of 2014, and is one of the books that I most consistently recommend in my day job as a bookseller, when people are looking for a new slice of Euro crime." (Raven Crime Reads)
