DEATH IN THE CITY OF LIGHT is the true story of the hunt for Marcel Petiot, a respectable physician by day, who turned out to be a brutal serial killer by night in Nazi-occupied Paris. Petiot was charged with 27 grisly murders, though his victims - many of whom were Jews seeking to escape the Nazis - may have numbered in excess of 100, for Petiot was not only skilled at evading detection and capture, he was also expert at dismembering his victims beyond any chance of identification. The investigation was led by Commissaire Georges-Victor Massu of the Homicide Squad, who became entangled with a cast of captivating characters through the shadowy world of Gestapo, gangsters, nightclub owners, Resistance fighters, pimps, prostitutes, spies, and various nefarious figures of the Parisian underground.
