Booklist Review: "Freeling's police procedurals represent the genre's state of the art. This is a mystery without a murder, but the characters are so richly created that a trail of corpses isn't necessary to sustain the plot. Commissaire Henri Castang's penchant for creating politically awkward situations for Police Judiciaire brass has resulted in his banishment to the Fine Arts Fraud Squad in Paris. The hope that this will keep him out of trouble is short-lived. Putting his job on the line in defense of his principles, Castang initiates a private investigation of a member of the French gentry who is preying on young girls. A new Castang novel is always a cause for celebration, and this one is no exception. ~--Elliot Swanson"
