Olivier Norek: Former police officer, writer on SPIRAL and a million-copy bestseller

“Exhilarating . . . This is not conventional crime” Barry Forshaw, FT

When a routine kidnapping case goes badly wrong, Capitaine Vincent Coste breaks his golden rule: he starts to take things personally.

And with his career hanging by a thread – his resignation letter parked in his superior’s desk draw – he is plunged into his most testing ordeal yet.

A raid on the vault at the Bobigny law courts. Five vital pieces of evidence swiped. Four men who can no longer be held: an armed robber, a foreign legionnaire, a kidnapper and a paedophile. But what is the connection between them?

With Coste and his team at a loss, it’s the moral outrage of another criminal that will throw up a lead: one they’ll follow to their breaking point – and beyond.


What readers are saying about Olivier Norek

You can see the similarities with the TV series Spiral, which can only be a major positive!

A hard hitting and gritty French crime read that makes an impact.

A great thriller, sardonic, humorous, dark.

I loved this book. Well written and had an authentic feel to it. A complete page turner.

Translated from the French by Nick Caistor
