About this deal

The stained glass rises all around, its colours turned to black by the dead light of the nearly full moon. In Extraordinary People, Enzo has made a bet that he can solve a long cold case, the disappearance of a prominent social and cultural figure some 10 years before. Enzo and his small team set to work and he begins using his long-unused skills to eke out clues and information.

EXCERPT: Moonlight glances off the shiny surface of the cobbles worn smooth by the feet of holy men.His life might be unduly complicated, but his mind is more alive than it has been in a long time, and the chase is becoming as beguiling as the charms of the alluring Charlotte. There was a marked absence of those small, personal items that clutter up people’s homes providing clues to their character. These clues are in the form of physical riddles left by the killer for reasons which do not become clear until the crime is solved.

The quest will enable Macleod to put to use his background as a forensic scientist and apply modern techniques in assessing the evidence, such as it is.

Some readers will find character attitudes and behaviour a little eyebrow-raising: this is definitely a book written from a male perspective!

I kept having the odd feeling with this book that it was not the first in a series and that I had missed out on some important character development in a previous book. To his right the statue of the Virgin Mary cradling the Baby Jesus watches impassively, impervious now to the prayers he has offered her so piously over so many years.To say the investigation is cold is an understatement, but the challenge might be exactly what he needs to get his career off the side track and back on the fast track. Gaillard disappeared several years earlier, his body never found, until a rock fall in the catacombs beneath Paris reveals a metal chest buried there, with a skull and a number of other items. I’ll be continuing on, that is for sure, but the start of the series hasn’t left me as desperate to continue on as I was with my introductory book to the author. Divorced in Scotland and widowed in France, he has an estranged Scottish daughter and a French daughter he has raised by himself.
