In the French village where Monet painted his water lilies, Giverny, the body of an art lover is found in the stream made famous by the artist. A clue on a postcard is discovered in the pocket of the victim Jerome Morval. The postcard may lead to his killer and the rumored painting Black Water Lilies. Michel Bussi is one of France’s most celebrated mystery writers. Black Water Lilies was translated from the French by Shaun Whiteside and released in the US in 2017.
