Description
The author of Vienna, 1814 and Finding Atlantis here tells a gripping true story about a serial killer who unleashed his own reign of terror in Nazi-occupied Paris. As decapitated heads and dismembered body parts began surfacing in the Seine, Commissaire Georges-Victor Massu was tasked with tracking down a monster in a twilight world of Gestapo, gangsters, Resistance fighters, prostitutes, spies, and other shadowy figures. The main suspect was Marcel Petiot, a handsome, charismatic physician. Was he a sexual sadist, as the press suggested, or was he allied with the Gestapo or the French Resistance? David King follows the investigation and a trial that became a circus—one that the smiling Petiot nearly ran away with.

"One of history's most macabre bouts of serial killing.... [The author] has more than just fresh eyes and imaginative speculation to power his revisiting of this long-forgotten true crime."—NYTimes
