As if there wasn’t enough death on the battlefields of WWII, here is a book that uses new research to tell the true account of a serial killer who terrorized Paris during the Nazi occupation. It combines the best elements of both historical and crime writing, using snappy language to tell a riveting story. Narrator Paul Michael makes it sound like a fictional murder mystery, using his deep, expressive voice to capture the case’s twists and turns as it moves around the French capital. Michael is equally adept at reading narrative and dialogue, and even provides a terrific French accent to give authentic voices to the characters. There are some gory descriptions, but Michael doesn’t dwell on them or let them undermine the author’s larger points. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
