    DescriptionThe first victim is a horse: its headless body hangs suspended from the edge of a frozen cliff. On the same day as the gruesome discovery, a young psychiatrist starts her first job at a secure asylum for the criminally insane, just a few miles away. Commandant Servaz, a Toulouse city cop, can't believe he has been called out over the death of an animal. But there is something disturbing about this crime that he cannot ignore. Then DNA from one of the most notorious inmates of the asylum is found on the corpse...and a few days later the first murder takes place. In this snowbound valley, deep in the Pyrenees, a dark story of madness and revenge is unfolding. It will take all of Servaz's skill to solve it. If you enjoyed The Returned, Spiral and Pierre Lemaitre's Alex, THE FROZEN DEAD is the perfect chilling summer read.

    Review quote
    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. Daily Mail 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 Literary Review An enjoyable and fast-paced thriller Sunday Business Post Chilling Elle The writing is razor sharp and nothing goes to waste. Enough to make other authors jealous. Femme Actuelle THE FROZEN DEAD is a boiling-hot success Le Point Remember the name Bernard Minier... he might well take his places among the masters of French thrillers Le Figaro
