A COLD DEATH - An aristotle Witzer Mystery by Michael Mandaville
In Paris, American cinema student Adele Longet is murdered. By drug dealers? A criminal kingpin? Unexposed French Nazi collaborators? Aristotle Witzer is asking questions. A great read!
I had the pleasure to meet Michael and his daughter at a book signing in Naya restaurant during the Golden Globes weekend, and loved this book.
