She begs Aimée to investigate—is it possible Mirko Vladic could be alive and in Paris with a blood vendetta?
Aimée is already working on a huge case, plus she’s got an eight-month-old baby to take care of. But she can’t say no to Suzanne, whom she owes a big favor. Aimée chases the few leads, and all evidence confirms Mirko Vladic is dead. Uuntil Suzanne’s team begins to turn up dead in a series
