9780060573669: The Empire of the Wolves: A Novel

The international sensation -- a riveting and electrifying blend of mystery, terror, and tense, violent action

Anna Heymes fears she is losing her mind. The wife of a top-ranking Parisian official, she suffers from amnesia and terrifying hallucinations -- a living nightmare made more horrifying when psychiatric testing reveals that Anna has undergone drastic cosmetic surgery . . . though she cannot recall when or why.

In the tenth arrondissement of Paris, a rookie police inspector and a seasoned veteran called out of retirement investigate the horrific murders of three anonymous young women -- illegal Turkish aliens who could not have deserved such a brutal, inhuman death.

From the murky night streets of clandestine Paris to the teeming fleshpot of Istanbul, two bizarre and terrible stories will become one -- as prey and predator, manipulated and manipulator come together in a storm of blood and fury . . . in the hideous shadow of the wolf.

About the Author:

Jean-Christophe Grange was born in Paris in 1961. Now an independent international reporter, he worked with magazines all over the world, as well as with various press agencies, before setting up his own news agency. Blood-Red Rivers, his second novel, became a huge bestseller in France and has since been made into a film, The Crimson Rivers, directed by Mathieu Kassovitz and starring Jean Reno and Vincent Cassel.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-Anna Heymes, housewife and chocolate-shop worker in Paris, is married to a successful administrator for the city's police force. The trouble is, her ordinary life becomes less and less familiar to her. Faces of people she knows seem strange, while complete strangers appear oddly familiar. Psychologists and neurologists can't determine a cause for her unique psychosis. Anna finds scars on her face and scalp, suggesting extreme plastic surgery, but she has no memory of having had it done. In a different thread, crafty cop Paul Nerteaux investigates the murders of three women, illegal immigrants working in sweatshops in the Turkish quarter. His theory is that a serial killer prowls the dark, dangerous streets of the ghettos. In over his head, he recruits Jean-Louis Schiffer, a retired cop with a mixed reputation who worked the area. Making full use of Schiffer's contacts and heavy-handed tactics, they learn that the murderer is an assassin for the Turkish Mafia sent to find a former employee who turned against the organization. The two threads finally come together, creating an exciting tapestry within this dark thriller. Grange makes excellent use of setting, adding layers of color to his tale. While some of the plot twists demand a high level of suspension of disbelief, the glitzy plotting moves the story at such a breakneck pace that readers barely have time to question the finer details. A fun and exciting ride not to be missed.-Matthew L. Moffett, Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale
