"Dordogne, July 1942. The Germans occupy France, but there are still "ordinary crimes" to be investigated. Jean-Louis St-Cyr of the Surete Nationale and Hermann Kohler of the Gestapo are two seasoned detectives, professional policemen who have been paired by their superiors. They work well together, each supplementing the other's skills. Now they are faced with a dilemma." "A respectable middle-aged woman has been found bludgeoned to death, butchered. The body has been virtually ripped apart. What could have provoked such savagery? As postmistress of her provincial village, she knew everyone's business. Was she a threat to someone? She despised her son-in-law and was loathed by him. Could he have killed her? Or was it a secret lover with whom she'd had a rendezvous?" "But perhaps the motive for the crime lies in the past. Many years ago, she had participated in the discovery of a prehistoric art trove rivaling the caves of Lascaux. A motion picture company has just arrived in the area to make a film of that event tracing Nazi roots back to Neanderthal times. Himmler is excited, Goebbels has sunk money into the venture, the Fuhrer himself is ecstatic. Do St-Cyr and Kohler dare to bring the murderer to justice?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

display_description A woman is found butchered not far from an archaeological site In the woods of the Dordogne, farmers and their pigs hunt the forest floor for truffles. It is June 1942, and one such farmer has found something unusual: the postmaster's wife, murdered and left to rot beneath the trees. By the time police inspectors Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler arrive from Paris, she has been dead four days, and the flies have begun to feast. As Kohler combs the area, finding a picnic basket, two bottles of Champagne, and a collection of poisonous mushrooms, St-Cyr turns the body on its back. The woman has been mutilated, hacked to pieces by a blunt ax. She died steps from the famous Lascaux caves, an invaluable archaeological site that has attracted the Fhrer's attention. The SS is about to descend on the area, a film crew in tow, confounding the investigation as they swarm like the flies on the postmaster's wife.
