A publishing sensation in France, where it's rushed up the bestseller lists, this is Minier's first crime novel and this translation justifies its vast French reputation...With a villain possessing the intelligence of Thomas Harris's immortal Hannibal Lecter, this is great story-telling, with a creeping sense of dread that would not disgrace Stephen King at his best.
An enjoyable and fast-paced thriller
This densely written and very atmospheric thriller is Minier's first novel. It has been a bestseller in France and, in this well-translated English edition, deserves to be one here
The writing is razor sharp and nothing goes to waste. Enough to make other authors jealous.
Revenge is at the heart of this clever mystery, which involves a plot as cold-blooded as the slaying of the horse
THE FROZEN DEAD is a boiling-hot success
Remember the name Bernard Minier... he might well take his places among the masters of French thrillers
A terrific thriller that will keep you up long past your bedtime. The French Pyrenees make a wonderfully atmospheric setting for this complex story of past crimes, madness and revenge. Servaz and Ziegler are a fascinating cop duo, and I hope to see more of them in the future. Excellent.
