Anne Forestier finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is trapped in the middle of a raid on a jewellers on the Champs-Élysées. Shot three times, she is lucky to survive - and morbidly unlucky to remember the face of her assailant.
Followed home from her hospital bed, Anne is in grave danger. But one thing stands in her favour - a dangerously vengeful partner, carrying the scars of devastating loss, who will break all the rules to protect the woman he loves: Commandant Camille Verhoeven.
Following the horror of Irène and the thrills of Alex, Camille is the heart-stopping final chapter of Lemaitre's multiaward-winning trilogy, soon to be the subject of a major American film.
Drawn once again into a labyrinthine web with answers ever out of reach, Camille must draw on all his talent to face an enemy who threatens everything he holds dear.

Firstly, it's important to read the Verhoeven books in order because if you don't, then there will be several spoilers and you will miss the back story of many of the characters. This is the least grisly of the books, and in my opinion, the most poignant. It is read by Peter Noble, as is Irene, (book 1) and he is superb. Book 2, Alex, has a different reader who is not nearly so good.
Camiille Verhoeven is a vivid character, barely 4 ft 11 inches, a skilled artist and a good cop. His intelligence, sensitivity and humanity create a three dimensional, sympathetic protagonist. The story has many twists and turns which are totally gripping. A great listen!
Started off very well, I struggled with relating to the detective, and the writing style though it made sense in the end. The spoken performance was excellent story Just a little too dark for me.
