Abstract:

Murder on a bitter winter's night in 1942 on a deserted road of France's Fontainebleau Forest - a young man with empty pockets and no I.D. Nearby, frozen blood on the rock that killed him, the print of a woman's shoe and a beaded silk purse containing a million francs in uncut diamonds. A crime of passion? The work of the Resistance? Or something else altogether? Enter a most unlikely pair - Jean-Louis St-Cyr of the Surete Nationale, and Hermann Kohler, a maverick member.

Of the Gestapo, not one to follow orders blindly. Higher-ups in the German command order St-Cyr to solve the crime in two days, and Kohler to keep an eye on him. The two seeming opposites, facing bureaucratic pressure, both German and French, develop a grudging respect for each other, then overcome all odds to become friends and partners. Set in the nightclubs and couture houses that remain in a society ravaged by German occupation, Mirage - the first novel in a.

Projected series featuring St-Cyr and Kohler - is a riveting combination of deduction and psychological thriller that climaxes with a hair-raising denouement in a chateau on the Loire River.
