It is Carnival season in Nice, and for three weeks the boulevards come alive with dancers, jugglers, and musicians. Amid the bustle and pageantry, a man suffers a fatal fall—but it is only the first in a series of suspicious deaths. Captain Paul Darac of the Brigade Criminelle is sure the mystery is rooted in the fallout of a daring bank heist, supposedly resolved years ago. But reopening the case awakens powerful enemies, and soon the safety of Darac's friends, his colleagues, and his family are all at stake. British novelist and art historian Peter Morfoot has spent decades exploring the life, art, and restaurants of the French Riviera, and imbues his series with the atmosphere of Nice.
