Master detective Niccolo Benedetti hunts down a killer in the French Alps
Niccolo Benedetti is many things: a professor, philosopher, painter, charmer, and a sterling, world-class detective, too. For Benedetti, a murder is not just a crime, but also a means of dissecting the nature of evil. It’s a problem demanding as much art as it does science. In this second installment in the Benedetti series, the detective travels to a ski resort in the French Alps, where a conference of international scientists is rocked by a series of killings. To make matters worse the prefect of police is also targeted, endangering the whole future of the conference, and the scientists claim that the perpetrator is nothing less than an honest-to-God, full moon–intoxicated werewolf. Together with sidekicks Ron Gentry and Janet Higgins, Benedetti will have to dive headfirst into this supposedly supernatural case.

About the author

William L. DeAndrea (1952–1996) was born in Port Chester, New York. While working at the Murder Ink bookstore in New York City, he met mystery writer Jane Haddam, who became his wife. His first book, Killed in the Ratings (1978), won an Edgar Award in the best first mystery novel category. That debut launched a series centered on Matt Cobb, an executive problem-solver for a TV network who unravels murders alongside corporate foul play. DeAndrea’s other series included the Nero Wolfe–inspired Niccolo Benedetti novels, the Clifford Driscoll espionage series, and the Lobo Blacke/Quinn Booker Old West mysteries. A devoted student of the mystery genre, he also wrote a popular column for the Armchair Detective newsletter. One of his last works, the Edgar Award–winning Encyclopedia Mysteriosa (1994), is a thorough reference guide to sleuthing in books, film, radio, and TV.
