Originally published: London : Quercus, 2009.
It's been only a few weeks since Police Chief Bruno Courreges said goodbye to his lover and partner in justice, and a mystery is precisely what he needs to distract him from heartbreak. And that's what he gets when a research station for genetically modified crops is burned down. Bruno suspects the fervent environmentalists who live nearby, but the fire is only the first in a string of intrigues centering on the fertile soil of Saint Denis.
