Picardie, 1963. A truck drops a group of illegal workers by a deserted stretch of canal in the dead of night, desperate travellers in a pipeline, searching for a better life. Days later, one of them surfaces, stabbed to death. For Inspector Lucas Rocco, finding the victim's fellow travellers presents problems. Most Algerian immigrants are welcome, but trawling for any who aren't is a sensitive issue loaded with threats of civil unrest - something which terrifies his bosses in the Ministry. And when Rocco is ordered to stay away from one factory where he suspects illegals are employed, it goes against everything he knows.
"A stunningly atmospheric follow up to 'Death on the Marais'... the story moves at a cracking pace, with the tension mounting with every page, I couldn't read fast enough. A definite entry for your `not to be missed' list." (Mystery Women Reviews)
"You have to love Rocco... France's answer to Jack Reacher - tall, dark, broad and dedicated to right wrongs. Death on the Rive Nord - `c'est magnifique'!" (crimesquad.com Author of the Month)

2nd book in Very Good Series!
- Kathi "Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy."
A change in narration, but not in writing
- B.J. "I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear."
