Detective short stories by Karine Giebel, Barbara Abel, Ingrid Desjours, Dominique Sylvain, Andrée A. Michaud, Nathalie Hug…

They are all thriller writers with a passionate readership. And at the request of one of those readers, Richard Migneault, they have all been brought together to explore a seductive theme: crimes committed in museums.

Museums of art, history, anthropology and science, and museums devoted to the present and the past – no gallery is out of bounds in this collection. As we enter, the hushed atmosphere creates an impression of calm, of almost religious reverence. A sense of peace seems to prevail, and yet we are already on a crime scene in the imaginations of our authors, as the works on display bear silent witness to violence, horror and Machiavellian scheming. Crimes of passion or crimes of greed – no transgression is taboo here.
