      I liked Looking to the Woods by Frederique Molay. I liked it very much.#4 in the Paris Homicide series, it did not matter that I had not read any of the preceding books. I liked this one enough to want to go back and read the earlier volumes.This is a very atmospheric book. I found myself reading with a French accent and substituting what few words I remember from my schoolgirl French lessons into the text. I was visualising Nico played by Daniel Auteuil.There is a nice blend of police procedure [...]

      This is a complex murder mystery which opens with a horrific murder of a child. This is book 4 in the series and I have read and enjoyed the previous three books in the series. The head of the elite Paris Criminal Investigation Division, Nico Sirsky, is called to the scene. He works with his team to solve a series of murders, all of which are dismembered bodies. I was not sure who the killer was until near the end. If you prefer cozy mysteries, this book is not for you. However if you read James [...]

      3.5 starsI received a copy of Looking to the Woods in exchange for a review. Thank you to Netgalley and Crossing for opportunity to read this e-ARC.British mysteries ignited my love of police procedurals and, while I still read as many as of those as I can, I’ve been moving to crime fiction set in other countries. When I saw a French police procedural listed on Netgalley, I eagerly grabbed a copy. For the most part, I was not disappointed. Looking to the Woods is a fast-paced, rather gruesome [...]

      I would like to thank Netgalley and Crossing for an advance copy of Looking To The Woods, the fourth novel in the Paris Homicide series of police procedurals.Chief Nico Sirsky is called to the scene of a grisly crime where a child has been mutilated. The next day a teenager is found hacked to death in a classroom. When a third victim is found the police realise they are the work of one serial killer imitating well known serial killers from the past and the hunt is on.I enjoyed Looking To The Woo [...]

      Police Chief Nico Sirsky and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer, whose crimes are so brutal, I had a hard time reading the crime scene particulars. As the deaths pile up, Nico is also facing problems in his private life. This was my first book by Ms. Molay and I can honestly say I won't read the others in the series.The brutality was hard to take, especially when it involved children. The characters were not well fleshed out, in my opinion, and after a while I couldn't figure out who w [...]

      Non stop actionAll four books are well worth reading. This was the fourth in the series. Can be read alone but reading all the books helps to develop the characters and brings a deeper level of understanding the characters. The mystery is complex and will keep you interested until the end. I stayed up until 5am to finish. Hope you enjoy as much as I have.

      5 StarsA missing young girl’s body is found. Nico and his sidekick, Vidal, are on the scene. At the autopsy, it is discovered that she has been horribly mutilated. Even the pathologist, Vilars, is having a hard time with the situation. Almost immediately, a child is killed at a school. Then another person is murdered. It just keeps happening apace. The murders become linked. Paris has a serial killer on the loose. The murders are different in certain aspects, but similar in others. Similar in [...]

      I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thank you, NetGalley/Crossing!This series has grown on me. At first, Nico Sirsky seemed too perfect to be likable but, with time and more cases, I've come to appreciate his doggedness. He is now confronted with the most diverse and horrific collection of crimes a person can solve. It starts with a little girl (which has become harder to read now that my sister has kids). But the rest of the victims are [...]

      [I freely volunteered to review this book]"Childhood traumas had a way of never healing."The story of a series if horrendous murders that keep everyone on edge and have you wondering just how perverse the lives of the participants are.This book is gruesome in places, which is one reason it took so long for me to read it. A crime thriller that comes close to what we often read in the headlines, Molay has written a taut, well researched look at the underside of abuse and the perverse response to i [...]

      The 4th novel in the Nico Sirsky Paris Homicide series is a very good read. This book focuses more on police work and investigative processes and less on the chief's personal life, although it does come into play as well (and sets up for the next book in the series).The killer is a copycat, and I *enjoyed* learning more about European serial killers I had not heard or read about. The conclusion is unexpected and rewarding for this reader. Highly recommended.

    11. Ken Cook on said:

      As a fan of Molay's three previous police procedurals, I preordered this novel months ago. As with her previous work, this edition is heavy with graphic details of multiple crime scenes. The continuing cast of characters gets filled out, and the ancillary - criminals - have adequate details. Not wanting to spoil the mystery, I will strongly recommend this as well as the full series. I hope another is in process!

    12. Jeanette on said:

      How I do enjoy novels when there is a serial killer on the loose! A very fast paced book that kept you turning the pages. I haven't read the previous books in this series, but that didn't matter. I felt that this was one of those books that could be read as a stand alone. I am now eager to read more novels by this author.My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers. This was my honest review.

    13. Jennifer on said:

      I received this book through the First Reads program.The fourth book in this police crime series, but can be read as a stand alone. Some scenes might not be for the faint of heart. Still quite a good story that kept a lively pace with enough twists to keep the reader engaged.I look forward to reading more from this author.

      the best book of the series to-date. Very enjoyable reading while on vacation.

      Thrilling!Couldn't put it down. Finally we have a well contrived story. The history lessons were cool as well. Cleverly done.

      Brutal murders scarring the French landscape. Chief of Police; Nico Sirsky is called to the site where the mutilated body of a young girl is found. This is the first in a series of brutal murders, all replicating well-known serial killers. Nico and his team are faced with one of the most violent cases and it’s going to take all the resources of this crack Paris Homicide Team to find the perpetrator. The question that the team needs to answer: How many people are involved in committing these ba [...]

      Looking to the Woods is an excellent book. Following Police Chief Nico Sirsky and his teams on their hunt throughout Paris for a serial killer often left me on the edge of my seat, while the ending certainly took me by surprise. Although this book is the fourth in Frederique Molay's Paris Homicide series, it can definitely stand alone, and I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. However, it has whet my appetite to read the first three books in the series and spend more time with Molay [...]

      I would like to thank , the publisher, author and translator for allowing me to read this book. I enjoyed the book and it was an easy read , kudos to the translator. The only and minor critcism I have is that was slower at the beginning and then the end of the book it almost went too fast and brought in new major characters

    19. Tracy on said:

      I intensely dislike this style of writing. It reminds me of really bad romance novels. It uses descriptive words like throbbing, pulsing, etc. and I could not stomach reading past the first few pages. If you read the first few sample pages and like this style of writing, then you may like this book. I couldn't read it.

    20. Joan Osborne on said:

      WOW.! Wasn't able to guess the ending. It was a complete surprise. I like how she weaves in history of places, buildings and just general facts into the story. And as usual, the book was chilling, but I couldn't put it down.
