Product description

A young model is found dead in a luxury hotel in Paris.

A stunning image of the scene falls into the hands of Exposé, the city's (and the country's) top scandal sheet. Delivered hours before the body was discovered, the photo seems to be the work of the murderer. Whose talent with a camera is plain to see.

It's Franck Guerin's first criminal case. Used to the murky world of national security, he has to play by the rules. Which proves not so easy since his only clue is the ultra-chic lingerie worn by the victim.

The fashion trail takes him into a universe of desire and deceit. As the victims mount and the images roll in, Franck has to train his eye to spot the killer's artistic signature.

Not to mention whoever is collecting photographs of him ...
