September 25: Death in the City of Light: The Serial Killer of Nazi-Occupied Paris by David King

ParisFrance - March 1944: 

As swastikas decorate their national monuments, French authorities make an even more horrific discovery at a house in the fashionable 16th arrondissement – burned, dismembered bodies by the dozens.

The search for the house’s owner, Dr. Petiot, and the identities of the victims, is complicated by the situation during the Nazi occupation: people disappear in droves every day. Could the mysterious doctor, as he claimed, have killed these people under orders from the Resistance, or does he work for the Gestapo? Is he simply a monster?

Part true-crime procedural and part history of 
Paris under the occupation, this engrossing book reads like a comedy of errors courtesy of the French judicial system.

-- From Bethany Latham’s review for Historical Novel Society’s HNR: Issue 58, November 2011.
