The Investigations of Inspector Higgins
Volume 27 : Crime On Lake Geneva

The Island of Peliz is the only island in Lake Geneva. On this piece of land, almost entirely covered by a hundred-year-old plane tree, the corpse of an English billionaire and former secret agent is discovered. For the county that prides itself on being “clean and tidy” it is a disaster, especially since the investigations have led nowhere.

Commissioner Delapage is not, however, lacking for suspects: an industrialist, an oenologist-watchmaker, a sculptor and even a monk…
At this dead end there is only one solution: call in the skilled collector of confessions, his old friend Higgins.
Because identifying the assassin means avoiding engulfing Lake Geneva in flames.

Known worldwide for his novels about ancient Egypt, Christian Jacq invites us to discover the passionate investigations of the inspector from Scotland Yard. Each year there are four exciting investigations.
