WITH NOTHING ELSE TO LOSE
Anne Forestier finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she blunders into a raid on a jeweller's on the Champs-Élysées. Bludgeoned beyond recognition, she is lucky to survive. But her ordeal has only just begun.
HE CAN BREAK ALL THE RULES
Lying helpless in her hospital bed, with her assailant still at large, Anne is in mortal danger. Only one thing gives her hope: Commandant Camille Verhœven.
TO PROTECT THE WOMAN HE LOVES
For Verhœven it's a case of history repeating itself. He cannot lose Anne as he lost his wife. This time he faces an adversary whose greatest strength appears to be Verhœven's matchless powers of intuition.

"Delivering more than its fair share of twists and turns, Camille is also a beautifully naunced portrait of a most unlikely hero, and one who's absence - if this truly is the last we'll see of Commandant Verhœven - will be keenly felt" DECLAN BURKE, Irish Times.
