Canadian writer J. Robert Janes's series of mysteries set in occupied France in 1942 are very popular in his native country and in England, and it's not hard to see why. Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler--an elegant, acerbic French policeman and a massive, lumbering, surprisingly compassionate gestapo agent--are an unlikely but extremely effective team of detectives. Here, they investigate the murder of a woman who discovered a historic art treasure of extreme importance to the Nazi cause--and whose death might be a dangerous embarrassment for everyone involved.
