Cezanne's quarry /

A young woman is found murdered . . . and the clues to her death point to her spurned lover, Paul C-zanneIn this richly atmospheric novel, a mysterious young woman named Solange Vernet arrives in Aix-en-Provence with her lover, a Darwinian scholar named Charles Westbury, and a year later is found strangled in a quarry outside the city. The young and inexperienced magistrate, Bernard Martin, finds his investigation caught in the crossfires of a raging cultural debate. Initially assuming that Solange-s murder was a simple crime de passion by either a jealous C-zanne or a betrayed Westbury, Bernard soon finds himself on a mission to unravel the secrets of Solange and C-zanne-s hidden past-the key to which may be a series of his paintings which depict the strangulation and violation of a woman with golden-red hair. Exploring the questions of science and religion-and the role of women in these realms-that persist even today, C-zanne-s Quarry is an impressive debut mystery about life, death, love, and art.
