Reviews
Praise for Chris Lloyd's Detective Eddie Giral series:
"Terrific."-- "The Sunday Times (London)"
"Sharp and compelling."-- "The Sun (London)"
"A thoughtful, haunting thriller."--Mick Herron, international bestselling author of Slough House
"A police story with a difference, sepia-painted to match the time and circumstances, with a convincing background and atmosphere, skillfully drawn to encompass the fates of the lead characters as if you were there by their side. Well-written and carefully researched, it is one to stay with you long after you have finished reading."-- "Shots Magazine"
"Chris Lloyd's wartime Paris is rougher than Alan Furst's, and Eddie Giral, his French detective, is way edgier than Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther. Ranks alongside both for its convincingly cloying atmosphere of a city subjugated to a foreign power, a plot that reaches across war-torn Europe and into the rifts in the Nazi factions, and a hero who tries to be a good man in a bad world. Powerful stuff."-- "The Times (London)"
"British author Lloyd makes his U.S. debut with a stellar sequel to 2020's The Unwanted Dead. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Lloyd paints a vivid picture of Paris: the lines of people trying to buy highly rationed food, the jazz clubs where they try to escape their miseries, and their persistent attempts to block out the brutal facts of the occupation. The plot action is suspenseful and intense. The characters--both heroes and villains--are vividly drawn. This is definitely a captivating read!"--Historical Novel Society
"[A] superbly atmospheric thriller, which oozes moral ambiguity."-- "Booklist (starred review)"
"This smart historical thriller centers on a WWII-era Paris policeman who finds himself working on behalf of the occupiers, pushing him into a moral crisis and a new case that forces him to confront the true extent of the damage being done to the soul of his city."--Dwyer Murphy, CrimeReads Editor-in-Chief
