The Inspector Svärta Thrillers, Book 2
In this captivating sequel, Eva Svärta and her partner Erwan Leroy are investigating a drug case when they find the burned body of a cocaine dealer. However, they discover that the case is more sordid than expected—someone cut off the victim’s tongue and tore out his heart, a ritual mimicking the punishment reserved for witches in the Middle Ages. But even worse, while looking for clues in the victim’s apartment, they discover the dead body of a newborn baby . . .
Eva discovers quickly that there are similar murders in other French towns. With the help of Inspector Vauvert, Eva tries to resolve this strange murder investigation linked to sorcery, black magic, the sacrifice of the first born in exchange for riches . . . and her own dark past.
