I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

The Lying Down Room

The Lying Down Room (Serge Morel 1) - Anna Jaquiery
The Lying Down Room is the first in a series of books featuring Detective Serge Morel and his team. Investigating the murders of elderly women, the story is set mainly in Paris but also Brittany and Moscow. 
I loved this, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would do. I really liked Morel and was trying to imagine him in a dramatised version through most of the book. Also, the supporting cast are very strong. We had the headstrong female, the older detective and the young rookie all of whom I could see developing strongly further on in the series. The story didn't just focus on the detectives but also the killers and their pasts which I liked.
I would definitely recommend this novel to anybody who likes a detective crime series. 
Really looking forward the sequel.
Thanks to the publisher and the author for the copy via NetGalley.
