The 7th Woman by Frederique Molay (#1 Paris Homicide Mystery)

3.5 out of 5 stars -- First in a new series (Paris Homicide) set in Paris, France, and featuring Nico Sirsky as Chief of Police in the criminal investigation division or La Crim.

The first victim is found in her own home, tortured and mutilated. The second woman is killed in the same manner. A serial killer has promised 7 victims in 7 days and seems to be taunting Nico. The teams are working around the clock to try to find and stop this sociopath as the victims keep being discovered on schedule.

A very interesting and fast paced police procedural with all the forensic details that I love. If you enjoyed the three {Irene, Alex, and Camille} novels by Pierre Lemaitre (translated by Frank Wynne), you will probably want to read this series as well. The only off note for me was the romance aspect (way too much too fast). I'll continue in the series with #2 and #3 next up on my Kindle.

Library book.
