This fast-moving story traces the dark, sinuous paths of sinister events that are unfolding in Le Sentier, the heart of the Parisian rag-trade. One spring morning a Thai girl is found dead in a fashion workshop, inciting a tangle of illicit events involving illegal immigration, oppressed sweatshop workers, prostitution rings, and a gay police officer and his Turkish lover. Other mysterious secrets lie hidden in the upper registers of Parisian society, including heroin trafficking and a sex club where patrons are secretly filmed, all serving as tantalizing fodder for this gripping morality tale of late-20th-century Paris.

"Set in Le Sentier, the district of Paris where expensive clothes are made in sweatshops, it uses real events - the struggle by foreign workers to get legal status - as the setting for an extraordinarily vivid crime novel." - Joan Smith, Books of the Year, Independent
