Lucie Henebelle, single mother and beleaguered detective, has just about enough on her plate with one daughter in the hospital and another off at summer camp when she receives a panicked call from an ex-lover. Lucie's old friend has developed a case of hysterical blindness after watching an obscure and mysterious film from the 1950s. Embedded in the film are subliminal images so unspeakably heinous that Lucie realizes she must get to the bottom of it--especially when nearly everyone connected to the film starts turning up dead. Enlisting the help of Inspector Franck Sharko--a brooding, broken profiler for the Paris police who is exploring the film's connection to five murdered men unearthed at a construction site--Lucie begins to strip away layers of what is perhaps the most disturbing and powerful film ever made.

"There are some films better left unseen." There are books better left unread. This is one of them.

Dark, intelligent and creepy. Detective Lucie Hennebelle needs to have more of her stories shared in the English world.

"This excellent translation of the bestselling French thriller is bound to keep Coma fans fascinated, as a cinephile goes blind while watching a mysterious film from the 1950s."
