Velvet by Sacha Lanvin


A woman is found drowned in Antibes, France.  It is ruled a homicide and local police get involved but have no answers until two things happen.  More drowned bodies are found and an award winning highly decorated Police Officer arrives in town for a vacation.  Clues are discovered and the murders are at last solved.

Lanvin presents a fascinating murder (I have certainly never read of this particular form of murder which is saying a lot having read literally thousands of murder mysteries over the years) with complicated twists that flow beautifully.  This is a great novella, fun beach or quick weekend read.
