In this exceptional follow-up to the highly praised Le Crime, ex-spy Louis Morgon is in France living a quiet life of good food, good wine, and good friends. When his house is burglarized, he thinks nothing of it. But neither the burglar nor the motive for the burglary is as simple as it seems. And the consequences of the seemingly trivial break-in will lead Louis and his loved ones to the ends of the earth—and quite possibly to the ends of their lives.

“A wonderful read . . . a fresh perspective on the international thriller. Cool writing, exotic locales, and a plot that keeps you guessing until the end.” —Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist
