The brand-new Eiffel Tower is the glory of the 1889 Universal Exposition. But one day a woman collapses and dies on its second floor. Can a bee-sting really be the cause of death? Enter young bookseller, Victor Legris, who is determined to find out what really happened. This is the first of a best-selling series of French murder mysteries now available in English for the first time. The series is a colourful evocation of late nineteenth-century Paris. Murder on the Eiffel Tower was the winner of the prestigious 2003 Michel Lebrun French Thriller Prize.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
