On a sultry night in June 1897, a young Russian by the name of Pyotr Ivanovich Balenov and two young women transport a dead man through the narrow streets of a working class neighborhood in northeastern Paris. They throw the body into the canal and the girls flee to the Latin Quarter to hide with one of the Russian’s anarchist “comrades.” They do not realize they, too, are being watched. Their subsequent disappearance and the violent acts that follow will set Clarie Martin, a teacher and mother of a toddler, and her husband, magistrate Bernard Martin, on a dangerous quest to rescue them from a vicious killer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mitchell projects a strong connection with her characters.”

    AudioFile

  • “Pope plots Clarie's search for the missing girl with precision and restraint. The true draw here is her portait of women—and their not-so-equal rights—at the turn of the last century. Wonderfully engaging. Even in the face of senseless limitations, Clarie proves it is possible to find joy, truth—and even oneself.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine (editor’s pick)

  • “An unlikely sleuth is drawn into another murder mystery in turn-of-the-century France…Pope's third mystery featuring Clarie (The Blood of Lorraine, 2010, etc.) expertly doles out pieces of its complex plot, a picaresque puzzle with satisfying period flavor.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The musings of Clarie about the wrenching inequity between the pampered women she teaches and those she and Bernard search for in back alleys gives us a window into this glamorous yet perilous time. Engrossing.”
