About the Author

Called, "the French Michael Connelly," Frederique Molay graduated from France's prestigious Science Po and began her career in politics and the French administration. She worked as chief of staff for the deputy mayor of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, and then was elected to the local government in Saone-et-Loire. Meanwhile, she spent her nights pursing a passion for writing she had nourished since she wrote her first novel at the age of eleven. The first in the Paris Homicide series, The 7th Woman, won France's most prestigious crime fiction award and went on to become an international bestseller, allowing Molay to dedicate her life to writing and raising her three children."

Reviews


"A sophisticated murder mystery published and translated by a former Durango resident who is finding terrific talent to bring to U.S. crime readers. This is a police procedural that twists, turns and is stitched together by a gossamer thread. We're lucky that Anne Trager can package these wonderful writers for us." --The Durango Herald

"I liked this police procedural set in Paris. Paris was well portrayed as was the differences in police work in France and the U.S. It is the second in series, and I recommend reading The 7th Woman first. I just stared reading The 7th Woman. The crimes are also interesting." -- Bookseller recommendation "From the Paris setting to the autopsy scenes, Molay's descriptions add believable imagery to this page-turner mystery...It speeds up nicely when she inserts a series of plot thickeners that give the story complexity and depth. When more dead bodies, puzzling clues, and conflicting character motivations get thrown into the fray, the action heats up, and the book is suddenly a page-turner. Francophile mystery lovers who are also fans of police procedurals will find Crossing the Line, the second in the Paris Homicide series, a satisfying read. It's a novel to be devoured in one sitting with the lights on." --Foreword Reviews "Translation from the original French... this seamlessly translated novel is as good as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Set in Paris with significant cultural markers and historical artifacts... It is a thrilling adventure in a world people spend a life time dreaming about. The city of love, the historical ambiance adds significantly to the story." --5-star Goodreads review


"Procedural fans will appreciate the fresh take." --Booklist

"For readers who enjoy a low-key approach with detailed descriptions, Molay is just the ticket." --Publishers Weekly "If you're looking for a chilling novel that will keep you guessing until the case is solved, this is the book for you." --Criminal Element: Fresh Meat "Most certainly a read-in-one-sitting title." --I am, Indeed "Thumbs up." --Bill's Book Reviews "An extremely enjoyable, thought-provoking read." --Books are Cool If you enjoy your crime set in a foreign clime, then this is the book for you." --Crime Fiction Lover "A fast read that works as a standalone, an interesting police procedural." --Valli's Book Den "Interesting twists and bizarre clues along the way will make you want to devour the book as quickly as possible." --Finding Time to Write "A richly descriptive police procedural...five stars." --Mommasez "Loaded with suspense, the plot immediately snares the reader's attention." --The Discerning Reader "The kind of suspense that makes you miss your subway stop." --RTL Radio "An excellent mystery, the kind you read in one sitting." --Lire Magazine "A fast-paced story that you don't want to end." --Nord-Eclair Daily "A perfect murder mystery! A brilliant psycho-thriller! The last time I wanted to nail all the windows and doors close and force all the cats and dogs to sleep on my bed, was with Patricia Cornwell's master forensic sleuth, Dr. Kay Scarpetta." -Goodreads review "This sequel is every bit as powerful and intriguing as the first story. Nico and his entourage are like old friends, but the action and mystery is fresh and impacting. You not only get a great detective story, but you also receive a compelling glimpse of things you would never see in Paris." - Goodreads review "Molay makes it an art to lead readers through Paris, down its streets and into its cafes and hidden places. And she knows her police procedure like the best of them.... A treat to read, truer than true. The pace is perfect. I couldn't put it down." -- Polar collectif "For lovers of police procedure. Molay describes places and methods with great precision, from dissection to body donation." -- Action-Suspense "A subtle and original plot" - Blog de Yv "Another adventure full of suspense with a personable hero and a brisk investigation." -Chroniques Litteraires "Romance, bizarre murders, and the pathos of dying children - an incredible and fascinating mix of mystery and love all of us need and want and love carried too far."- Goodreads review "This series just gets better as Sirsky continues to grow and evolve. Highly recommended." - Goodreads review
