Champs Élysées


Champs Élysées
The Avenue des Champs Élysées is a famous street in Paris that has been described as "the most beautiful avenue in the world" (French: "la plus belle avenue du monde"). It is also one of the most expensive real estate locations in the world.

The Avenue des Champs Élysées is approximately 1.2 miles (1.9 kilometers) long. It runs from the Place de la Concorde in the East, to the Place Charles de Gaulle (containing the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile) in the West.

The Champs Élysées is lined with clipped chestnut trees, and contains buildings such as the Théâtre Marigny (a famous historic theater), the Grand Palais (a historic museum complex and exhibition site), as well as cinemas, restaurants and cafés, as well as luxury boutiques and speciality shops.

The Champs Élysées is named after the Elysian Fields, the place according to Greek mythology, where the blessed dead would go.

Product Description:

Paris, 1900. The height of the Belle-Epoque: decadence, wealth, hedonism...and murder.

"Mandon creates a gay lead character in a mainstream mystery, with refreshing and ingenious insight!" --Kathryn Lynn Davis, New York Times bestselling author

Homicide investigator Guillaume DevrE stands for the silenced victims, bound to seek justice as he makes his way from the wide boulevards frequented by the tout-Paris to the narrow byways of Montmartre, to the shadow of the Tour Eiffel and the lush elegance of Maxim's.

When the most famous courtesan in Paris becomes the prime suspect in the death of a wealthy young man, Inspector DevrE is reluctantly drawn into the opulent parlors and witty manners of high society. As the investigation unfolds, he must contend with a bloodthirsty press and the outrageous behavior of his suspect...as well as his own prejudices and unfulfilled needs.

DevrE soon realizes that solving this murder could expose him and his darkest secret.

Murder on the Champs-ElysEes is the first in a new series featuring Inspector Guillaume DevrE, a homicide detective from la SUretE who lives a secret life on the fringes of respectable society, the powerful courtesan known as La Balise--with secrets of her own--and the gruff but brilliant American pathologist Dr. Jackson.

"[The] characters are so human and absorbing they will follow you past the solution of this compelling and cleverly unique detective novel. This book consumed me, and though I read it weeks ago, I am still unable to let it go."

--Kathryn Lynn Davis, New York Times bestselling author

"Alex Mandon sets this forward-thinking mystery in a lush historical setting that unveils all the opulence of the era. Tightly plotted and evocative!"

--Tanya Anne Crosby, New York Times bestselling author
