Paris 1891. On Boulevard Montmartre, the body of a barefoot woman in red is discovered; she has been strangled and disfigured. That same day, a single red shoe is delivered to Victor Legris's Parisian bookshop by a goatherd, in this third mystery in the series by the author of Murder on the Eiffel Tower and The Disappearance at Père Lachaise. Suspecting it is more than a coincidence, the bookseller sleuth and his assistant, Jojo, are on the case. Then a body is discovered in a wine barrel, a Moulin Rouge performer is found strangled, and the evidence points to a crime that shocked the people of Lyons years before.
"Reading [Claude] Izner is like taking a ride into the belle epoque in a time machine. A wonderfully breathtaking ride."—Boris Akunin
