Review by fgaine
Unfortunately, a Dan Brown-styled design cover and a promising title is not enough to make a best-selling thriller. The plot is less about Nostradamus and his lost prophecies (actually pretty much all on that subject is said in the blurb on the back cover) than it is about an endless mind-numbing chase across France between a serial killer and a group of people smarter than him. The serial killer has no psychological depth ( a bit of a paradox there) and the gypsy community is depicted as such a backward and superstitious people that you can barely believe what you are reading. One of the French cops is stuck-up to the point of silliness and the other one is so dumb, xenophobic and narrow-minded that one wonders how he became a police officer. Extremely disapointing. Don't judge the book by its cover!
