Overview

In this intricate, intense mystery from the acclaimed “master of the Quebec thriller”, the ghosts of Victor Lessard’s past come back to haunt him as he investigates a horrific murder-suicide that doesn’t add up.

When a young Montreal family dies in an orgy of bloody violence, all signs point to a rampage by the father. But Victor Lessard isn’t convinced. The brilliant, brooding detective suspects that others were involved in the killings. But who? And why? As Lessard struggles to solve the puzzle, the discovery of a nightmarish chamber of horrors seems to confirm that the murders are part of a wider pattern. With a ghost from his past making him doubt his own sanity, Lessard must evade the lethal operatives of a powerful, highly secretive organization as he races to untangle the mystery before a diabolical killer can strike again.

Reviews

The Devil's Choir is a “complete” thriller: a very well-run plot, captivating and believable characters, impeccable suspense. Michaud is carving out a place of choice among the elite of the Quebec industry.

The atmospheric series is to Montreal what the late Swedish writer Henning Mankell’s crime novels are to Stockholm.
