PAGING THROUGH HISTORY
Death in the City of Light: The Serial Killer of Nazi-Occupied Paris by David King
A gripping, true story of a brutal serial killer who unleashed his own reign of terror in Nazi-occupied Paris. As decapitated heads and dismembered body parts surfaced in the Seine, Commissaire Georges-Victor Massu, head of the Brigade Criminelle, was tasked with tracking down the elusive murderer in a twilight world of Gestapo, gangsters, resistance fighters, pimps, prostitutes, spies, and other shadowy figures of the Parisian underworld.
“Lasting for more than four years, the Nazi occupation of Western Europe is a complex period of history that raises many questions and one I often find myself drawn to. How did people respond? What choices did they make? What other stories have been obscured with the passage of time? In Death in the City of Light, author David King discusses these questions and others by exploring a series of horrific murders that unleashed further terror and chaos upon occupied Paris.” -- Kevin
