A novel by

 
 
The next in a thrilling new crime series from The Times-bestselling author of Death and Croissants

A decapitated body washes up on the banks of the River Loire, in the ancient city centre of Tours.
With no-one else available, a reluctant Lombard is brought in to lead the investigation, as the victim - friendless and unclaimed - is given more attention in death than in life

When Lombard’s young niece appears, he is drawn also into another world, of eco-terrorism, bio-medical research, French aristocracy and the violent, forgotten underbelly of society.

Now it's no longer a question of just his own future, it's everyone else's too.

Can the brutal murder of a lonely man, revealing uncomfortable truths about Lombard's own life, really be part of a plan to save the planet? Or are seemingly good intentions hiding darker motives, far more cynical and more deadly?
