THE MOST AMAZING TRUE STORY SINCE AGENT ZIGZAG OCCUPIED PARIS, 1944. A swastika crowns the Eiffel Tower. Nazis march through the streets. And in the dark heart of the city, a madman is at work ...At a chic Right Bank address, a horrific pile of dismembered bodies is discovered. The property's owner, well-to-do Dr Petiot, immediately becomes the prime suspect, but he has vanished without a trace. As the police delve into the doctor's past, a disturbing history of violence and corruption is uncovered. It seems like a cut-and-dried case, but the investigation soon takes a surprising turn. Is Petiot a sadistic serial killer or a hero of the Resistance? Who are his victims? In this fascinating true account of a case that gripped wartime Paris, David King draws extensively on new sources to paint a chilling portrait of a murderer whose crimes devastated a city already in the grip of evil.
