Description

A mysterious killer strikes in a city where crime should be impossible.



For generations, police investigations have been unnecessary in the city of Basle. Tiny tracers identify any criminal as soon as an illegal action takes place, and this has made the city virtually crime-free.



But now the city is torn apart by a series of gruesome murders committed by a shadowy figure known only as the Baron of the Mists. And qualified witch and detective Roberta Morgenstern and her young associate Clément Martineau are on the killer's trail.



High-speed chases across rooftops and through the city's winding streets lead Roberta and Clément to the Queen of the Gypsies, the pirates of the lagoon, the practicers of some very dark alchemy, and finally to the deadly Baron of the Mists himself. . . .

Our customer reviews

In the first novel of THE DEVIL'S DANCES trilogy, DANCE OF THE ASSASSINS, Herve Jubert created virtual-reality theme parks in various cities, all pertaining to a different time period. Roberta, a sorceress, has been trying to figure out if famous serial killers have come back to further their murders. The Killers' Quadrille has come to handle the devil's work. This second novel of the trilogy, DEVIL'S TANGO, brings back Roberta to solve another murder mystery, this time in the city of Basle. Located in the mountains of Switzerland, Basle was one of the very few cities that had remained after a terrible flood. Tracers, invented by witches, are the cause for the lack of work for the detectives in Basle, since it monitors all the areas. But now that a series of murders are discovered, the tracers aren't much help with this case - and it's up to Roberta to figure out who the mastermind is. With a mix of a future and virtual world, Herve Jubert creates a world that we will never forget, although at times it's a little confusing. The scenes are haunting and the murders are chilling, and it is the perfect suspense novel for every occasion.show more
