    Winner of the CWA International Dagger. In kidnapping cases, the first few hours are crucial. After that, the chances of being found alive go from slim to nearly none. Alex Prevost – beautiful, resourceful, tough – may be no ordinary victim, but her time is running out. Commandant Camille Verhoeven and his detectives have nothing to go on: no suspect, no lead, rapidly diminishing hope. All they know is that a girl was snatched off the streets of Paris and bundled into a white van. The enigma that is the fate of Alex will keep Verhoeven guessing until the bitter, bitter end.

    Jean Garnier lives on the fringes - a lonely nobody who has lost everything dear to him. His girlfriend was killed in an unexplained accident, his mother has just been sent to prison - he has even lost his job after the sudden death of his boss. In one last, desperate cry for help, Jean sets up seven lethal bombs, hidden all over Paris and timed so that one will explode every 24 hours. After the first detonation, Jean gives himself up to the police. He has one simple demand: his mother must be released, or the daily explosions will continue.

    Dès le premier meurtre, épouvantable et déroutant, Camille Verhœven comprend que cette affaire ne ressemblera à aucune autre. Et il a raison. D'autres crimes se révèlent, horribles, gratuits...

Policier atypique, le commandant Verhoeven ne craint pas les affaires hors normes mais celle-ci va le placer totalement seul face à un assassin qui semble avoir tout prévu. Jusque dans le moindre détail.
