Winner of the 2015 C.W.A. International Dagger.

Anne Forestier finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she blunders into a raid on a jewellers on the Champs-Élysées. Shot three times, beaten almost beyond recognition, she is lucky to survive, but her ordeal has only just begun.

Lying helpless in her hospital bed, with her assailant still at large, Anne is in grave danger. Just one thing stands in her favour – a partner who will break all the rules to protect the woman he loves: Commandant Camille Verhœven.

For Verhœven it’s a case of history repeating. He cannot lose Anne as he lost his wife Irène. But his serious breach of protocol – leading a case in which he is intimately involved – leaves him out on a limb, unable to confide in even his most trusted lieutenants.

And this time he is facing an adversary whose greatest strength appears to be Verhœven’s own matchless powers of intuition.

Lemaitre is worthy of all the fuss.
Barry Forshaw, Independent.
Crime fiction of the highest class.
Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail.
Superior crime fiction, worthy of the international attention it has received.
Patrick Anderson, Washington Post.
A satisfying finis to the trilogy.
Barry Forshaw, Independent.
This original and poignant story is the final instalment in a trilogy that has been a dazzling success.
Jessica Mann, Literary Review.
Delivering more than its fair share of twists and turns, Camille is also a beautifully naunced portrait of a most unlikely hero, and one who's absence - if this truly is the last we'll see of Commandant Verhœven - will be keenly felt.
Declan Burke, Irish Times.
A really excellent suspense novelist.
Stephen King.
