Jubert's spatial setup is so abstract that readers may never understand the lagoon, sunken buildings and city geography; a map is sorely needed. Marred only by the pretension of four identical footnotes urging you to read Book 1, this is a metaphysically creative and fantastical tale for fans of the offbeat. But the trackers are inexplicably silent, so Roberta and her colleague Martineau snap into action. Meanwhile, a corrupt official whips the population into a frenzy persecuting gypsies in the Historic Quarter. Jubert’s spatial setup is so abstract that readers may never understand the lagoon, sunken buildings and city geography; a map is sorely needed.

A hundred years or so have passed since the pandemic Great Flood devastated the world. Few places survived its destruction as well as Basle, a city in which air particles created by sorcerers prevent crime from happening due to the particles "keeping" a check on citizens. Threre are no major crimes until now. The city is suddenly inundated by homicides. Murder should not have occurred because of the air yet killings did and are becoming frequent.

In that atmosphere of fear, the election for mayor has taken a nasty spin as Candidate Foulk claims outsiders, the Gypsies, are using outlawed alchemy to circumvent the crime prevention system and are the killers though he offers no evidence or motive. As he stirs hatred to enhance his election possibilites, Criminal Investigation Department Chief Major Gruber knows he has no in-house capabilities to solve the murders as no crime had occurred in three years since the Killer's Quadrille incident. He assigns criminal investigative reservists Witch Roberta Morgenstern and her police officer associate Clement Martineau to uncover the identity of the culprit. They search for genetic markers that lead them to the Queen of the Gypsies; not understanding that the Baron of the Mists has used burearcratic bungling to rig the investigation.

DEVIL'S TANGO brilliantly mixes elements from science fiction, fantasy and mystery into a delightful thriller. Roberta is terrific as she follows clues that place her and her associate in danger from a seemingly known adversary yet her instincts say otherwise. Fans of a wild way out police procedural will enjoy the sequel to DANCE WITH ASSASSINS.

In the first novel of THE DEVIL'S DANCES trilogy, Dance of the Assassins (The Devil's Dances Trilogy), Herve Jubert created virtual-reality theme parks in various cities, all pertaining to a different time period. Roberta, a sorceress, has been trying to figure out if famous serial killers have come back to further their murders.

The Killers' Quadrille has come to handle the devil's work.

This second novel of the trilogy, DEVIL'S TANGO, brings back Roberta to solve another murder mystery, this time in the city of Basle. Located in the mountains of Switzerland, Basle was one of the very few cities that had remained after a terrible flood. Tracers, invented by witches, are the cause for the lack of work for the detectives in Basle, since it monitors all the areas.

But now that a series of murders are discovered, the tracers aren't much help with this case - and it's up to Roberta to figure out who the mastermind is.

With a mix of a future and virtual world, Herve Jubert creates a world that we will never forget, although at times it's a little confusing. The scenes are haunting and the murders are chilling, and it is the perfect suspense novel for every occasion.

An intriguing story of a futuristic society where land is scarce, water threatens, prejudices abound, and insidious evil is rampantly omnipresent. Magic and forensic science vie for answers to gruesome crimes. In this highly visual and entertaining race to overtake an unidentifiable assasin with a doomsday deadline, middle-aged detective Roberta Morgenstern, a sorceress, along with her young associate Clement Martineau, lead the chase. Although the story has no characters younger than twenty, it is an interesting read for those who enjoy realistic fantasy, or fantastic realism. The dance theme begins, with merry provacativeness, between Roberta nd her dance-instructor boyfreind, and there are other humane and warm interactions as well, which help to alleviate the macabre whirl of the devil's tango...
