This is the first book in the Paris Homicide series and has been translated into English.
We meet Nico Sirsky head of Chief of police fresh from a Dr's appointment for a suspected ulcer and instructions to rest.
Obviously in his line of work rest isn't an option for him and as he is called to the scene of a murder rest is not something he's going to get.
Marie Helene Jory - 36 assistant professor of history at the Sorbonne has been killed, murdered in her own home.
A particularly shocking scene awaits the officers.
It's soon clear after body number 2 shows up that the first killing was not a one off and we have a serial killer on the loose.
A message left at one for the scenes States 7 Days 7 Women. Can the team figure out who is behind the killing and why before any more bodies turn up.
It soon becomes clear that the killer is leaving personal messages for Nico, but why and can he figure out why before it becomes to personal.
Overall the book was an enjoyable read and I would probably read more in this series to see where things head.
