"EXCELLENT... WITH ITS INTRICATE PLOT, COMPELLING CHARACTERS, AND BOMBSHELL DENOUEMENT, THIS UNSETTLING ENZO FILES INSTALLMENT IS A MUST-READ" --Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review
A crime scene frozen in time, a hostile local population, and a cryptic set of clues make this one of Enzo's most challenging cases.
Forensics expert Enzo Macleod travels to a tiny island off the coast of Brittany to honor a promise he made long ago to a dead man, to investigate his 20-year-old murder.
In a fascinating development, Enzo learns that the man's study--the scene of the crime--has been completely untouched ever since.
In the claustrophobic environment of the island's close-knit community, where the locals have no desire to see this painful case reopened, Macleod must try to find clues in plain sight that earlier investigators missed.
Complicating matters are the man's attractive widow, who yearns for closure, and a man who was accused and acquitted of having committed the crime--who still remains the best suspect.
