Without Blood: A Victor Lessard Thriller

Martin Michaud, trans. from the French by Arthur Holden. Dundurn, $17.99 trade paper (384p) ISBN 978-1-4597-4209-3
Michaud’s intriguing prequel to 2020’s Never Forget follows three days in the life of Montreal Det. Sgt. Victor Lessard as he investigates a hit-and-run, the stabbing death of a senior hospital administrator, and a dead man found in the trunk of a stolen car. Against medical advice, Simone Fortin—the hit-and-run victim—leaves the hospital and tries to locate Miles Green, the young man who came to her aid after she was struck by a speeding car. Simone’s quest takes a strange turn when she learns that Miles has been in a coma for years. Has she entered a parallel reality? The tension rises as a stone cold killer stalks Simone, and Lessard comes to realize that the two murder cases and the hit-and-run may be linked. Michaud keeps the reader guessing as to what’s real and what’s dream. Those who like their mysteries with a surreal touch will be rewarded.
