Femme Devereux
by Ray Sproule

Swiss homicide detective Angeline Devereux arrives on the scene of a murder in gloomy Lindenhof Park. The victim’s lifeless body is found shoved inside the wooden box normally home to the oversized wooden chess pieces for the outdoor chessboard. Devereux’s obsession to uncover the identity of the murdered man takes her to a small Czech village where the mystery continues to take bizarre twists and turns. Discovering a revenge plot between the victim and one of her suspects, she makes her way to a monastery, where she encounters a band of bow wielding monks. Once the hunter, she is now the prey.

While back in Zurich, as Devereux works on solving the murder, she also struggles to resolve her own internal demons and an evil past that continues to torment her.

Written with extraordinary detail and authenticity, Femme Devereux is a spellbinding page-turner, sure to entrance all armchair detectives.
