What You Don't See Could Kill You   In this international bestseller, which is soon to be a major motion picture penned by the screenwriter of Black Swan , the classic procedural meets cutting-edge science   Lucie Henebelle, single mother and beleaguered detective, has just about enough on her plate when she receives a panicked phone call from an ex-lover who has developed a rare disorder after watching an obscure film from the 1950s. With help from the brooding Inspector Franck Sharko, who is exploring the movie's connection to five unearthed corpses at a construction site, Lucie begins to strip away the layers of what may be the most disturbing film ever made. With more lives on the line, Sharko and Lucie struggle to solve this terrifying mystery before it's too late. In a high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled hunt that jumps from France to Canada, Egypt to Rwanda, and beyond, this astonishing page-turner, with cinematic echoes from The Manchurian Candidate and the Bourne series, will keep you guessing until the very end.

display_description "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"--From publisher description.
