The first installment in the Still Life series, Post Mortem, is set in the 1920s and introduces former American detective Gustav McPherson. Gustav lives in Paris and is asked to investigate the brutal murder of two Americans - the sister and brother-in-law of the fabulously wealthy and mysterious Sophia Blake.
