"Occupied France, December 1942. Seven days before Christmas, Jean-Louis St-Cyr of the French Surete Nationale and his partner Hermann Kohler of the Gestapo are dispatched to a village in Provence to investigate what appears to be a "local" murder. An attractive, well-dressed woman lies dead on a hillside, an iron-tipped bolt through her heart. Was it a crime of passion?" "The tight-lipped Provencals are uncooperative, fearful of Nazi reprisals against the maquis encamped in the surrounding hills. But the crime scene points inexorably to the repercussions of a former scandale politique and St-Cyr's old nemesis - a Nazi collaborator." "Before the murder is solved, the inspectors will be drawn into a web of collusion and conflicting loyalties as intricate and shifting as the patterns of a kaleidoscope."--BOOK JACKET.
