    In a world of knife-edge glaciers a hideous crime leads two maverick detectives to confront the limits of human evil. A corpse is discovered wedged in an isolated crevice. It has been horribly mutilated. The brilliant but violent ex-commando Pierre Niémans is sent from Paris to the French Alps to lead the investigation. Meanwhile, in a town in south-west France, Karim Abdouf, a young Arab policeman, is trying to find out why the tomb of a young child has been desecrated. When a second baby is found, high up in a glacier, the paths of the two policemen are joined in the search for their killers, a trail that embroils them in the mysterious cult of the blood red rivers.

Jean-Christophe Grangé was born in Paris in 1961. Formerly an independent international reporter, he worked with magazines all over the world as well as with various press agencies before setting up his own news agency. Blood-red Rivers, his second novel, was made into a film - directed by Mathieu Kassovitz - with the title The Crimson Rivers.
