About this title

Synopsis:

Set in the sunlit port of Marseilles, the first novel in the Jacquot series follows Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot's investigation into a series of disturbing killings- beautiful female victims found battered and submerged in water. Ex-French National Rugby Squad player Jacquot is a lover of good food, wine and the blues. But this easy going charm hides his razor sharp eye for detail. So after his girlfriend leaves him, the French sleuth is free to plunge himself whole-heartedly into the investigation - one that is to lead him into much darker and murkier waters than he could have imagined.

From the Inside Flap:

The Waterman is no ordinary killer, but then Daniel Jacquot is no ordinary detective. Daniel Jacquot always jokes that he joined the police force so he could earn a living and still play rugby. And play he did, for France, scoring the winning try in a Five Nations final against the English. Nearly twenty years later, Daniel Jacquot is still remembered for his mighty victory. But now he's a chief inspector, working homicide with the Marseilles judiciaire. Like playing rugby, tracking down killers is a game that Jacquot understands. And Marseilles just happens to be Jacquot's own home ground. It's here, in this city by the sea, that a shadowy, elusive killer steps onto the field of play--drugging, raping, and drowning three young women. With a new partner, a rising body count, and only a three-word tattoo to work with, Daniel Jacquot gradually closes in on the methodical murderer whom the press have christened "The Waterman." Highly atmospheric and intensely gripping, Jacquot and the Waterman introduces a stellar new writer to America's must-read mystery list.
