LEVIATEMPS by Maxime Chattam

Posted by Amélie, on 20 August 2012. Comments: 0

The year is 1900 and the streets of Paris are bustling with the World's Fair celebrations, while the underground and back alleys of the city of lights are being painted red by a psychotic murderer.

Guy de Timée is a successful author who has left his wife to follow the romantic dream of reinventing his life in a brothel. Until the gruesome murder of a prostitute sends him on the tracks of the vicious killer. Relying on what he believes to be an insightful and thorough knowledge of the human psyche, Guy will plunge into a Holmesian hunt for a man which will lead him along the seedy paths of human nature, and may very well end up teaching him more about himself and his contemporaries than he would have like.

A gothic thriller heavy with superb descriptions of a Paris brightly frantic and sinister all at once, setting the perfect stage for a journey through the vices and perversions of the human mind.

Product Description: Paris, 1900, amidst the World's Fair celebrations but far from the bright streets, it is a dark blood that beats the heart of the city, and flows relentlessly, to the rhythm of the murders committed by a demonic killer.

Several prostitudes have already fallen victim to his hands, and the police is helpless. Shocked by their lack of progress, writer Guy de Timée roams the sordid streets and the dirty sewers in an insane hunt for the killer. Every minute counts... and kills.
