9780862788933: Death in December: The Story of Sophie Toscan du Plantier

On 23 December 1996, the body of Sophie Toscan du Plantier was discovered outside her remote holiday cottage near Schull in West Cork. The attack had been savage and merciless. The murder caused shock waves in her native France and in the quiet Cork countryside that she had chosen as her retreat from the high-flying lifestyle of the film business in which she and her husband mixed. Six years later, and despite an extensive investigation, the killer of Sophie is still at largeand the file remains open. Death in December is the fascinating and compelling story of how an independent and beautiful woman sought peace and sanctuary and instead found violence and the ultimate terror. It gives a chilling profile of the killer whom pyschologists believe will strike again.

About the Author:

Michael Sheridan has combined a career as a journalist with that of theatre director. He has written extensively on the Sophie Toscan du Plantier murder and the Garda investigation. Michael was also the main screenplay writer for the film When the Sky Falls based on the life and death of journalist Veronica Guerin.

Review:

'A chilling psychological profile of a sadistic murderer whom police believe could strike again.' -- Irish Examiner * The Irish Examiner * 'It is a tribute and a memorial to Sophie as much as a chronicle of a terrible crime.' -- Bookview Ireland 'I was particularly intrigued as to how such a story could be written without effectively the last chapter being available through the conviction or even the trial of Sophie's killer. But Michael Sheridan copes with the difficulty with aplomb.' -- Irish Independent * Irish Independent *
