Book description
Intrigue, murder and a touch of Romance in the City of Lights…and shadows.

Princess Victoria is coming to Paris at Christmas.

Paul Malet, raised in a prison and acting Prefect of Police, has some suspicions that he cannot explain. The unprecedented visit of the English Heiress Apparent to France holds some problems: her death might bring good fortune to certain highly placed people

To add to his worries, Malet has angered an urchin named Larouche, who is sworn to bring him down or, at least, ruin his hat.

As a final complication, Malet has fallen in love.

It is going to be a busy autumn.
