A novel of La Belle Epoque replete with absinthe sex and serial killers


(MENAFNEditorial)

In La Belle Époque Paris the morgue is the place to see and be seen…

“This morning I was called upon to photograph the dead again” begins THE GREEN MUSE (Witness Impulse e-book on sale 2/3/2015 $2.99 ISBN:  9780062354563) the story of Edouard Mas a photographer’s assistant with a detective’s soul. Edouard’s job is to take pictures of corpses before they are carted off to the Paris Morgue. If they are unidentified they will be put behind glass for the whole city to view in a morbid display of lost and found.

Edouard begins to come across more and more bodies stripped of their identification laid out in methodical poses and he knows he is dealing with an artist—an artist of death. The morgue—their museum.

Edouard’s investigation takes him from the sterile halls of La Salpêtrière to the opulent smoke-filled soirees of high society but he must do everything in his power to stop the artists of death before they go after somebody he loves…

In exquisite prose so vivid you can almost taste the absinthe and hear the rustling skirts of the Moulin Rouge showgirls Jesse Prichard Hunter tells an unforgettable tale of murder and lust in the City of Light.
