Amid the hustle and bustle of the Paris 1889 Universal Exposition, workers discover the mutilated corpse of a popular model and Moulin Rouge Can-Can dancer in a Montmartre sewer. Hysterical rumors swirl that Jack the Ripper has crossed the Channel, and Inspector Achille Lefebvre enters the Parisian underworld to track down the brutal killer. His suspects are the artist Toulouse-Lautrec; Jojo, an acrobat at the Circus Fernando, and Sir Henry Collingwood, a mysterious English gynecologist and amateur artist. Pioneering the as-yet-untried system of fingerprint detection and using cutting edge forensics, including crime scene photography, anthropometry, pathology, and laboratory analysis, Achille attempts to separate the innocent from the guilty. But he must work quickly before the "Paris Ripper" strikes again.

Review:

Has Jack the Ripper crossed the Channel? The savagery of the killing near the Moulin Rouge raises fears that the Ripper has resumed his slaughter. Plenty of precise period detail helps drive the plot.

Has Jack the Ripper reemerged in Paris? Or did Toulouse-Lautrec, or any number of colorful suspects, dismember a beautiful young woman? With vivid historical detail, Inbinder takes us on a twisted journey through gaudy, gritty fin-de-siecle Paris to a shocking denouement.--Barbara Corrado Pope, author of The Missing Italian Girl

Gary Inbinder knows his fin de siecle Paris well. Characters thrive amid this underbelly of a cityscape.

Inbinder's mystery debut shows Montmartre at its atmospheric best--inhabited by characters as diverse and devious as Paris can offer."

Inbinder depicts a fascinating period in Parisian history with excellent detail, and Inspector Lefebvre's techniques are intriguing, as they show the advent of modern forensics.

A whodunit that combines a killer plot with skillful characterization. The reader comes away emotionally exhausted but exhilarated by the author's first venture in the genre.

A satisfying mystery to the end. Highly recommended for Ripper fans and lovers of fin de siècle!
