"An adventure “in the manner of Jules Verne”, full of darkness, murder and mystery ... suspense, surprises, unexpected terrors ..."
Le Canard enchaîné
"A vigorous and exciting thriller ...The ichthyology rather than the Da Vinci Code. Who says better? "

"A remarkably constructed crime-novel... After Fred Vargas, here's a new writer recruited within the world of science. "
"Our favorite book of the month... (which) keeps the suspense throughout this exciting quest."
"A master thriller. Book a sleepless night to taste this fish. Exciting scientific adventures. "
"At once fascinating and clever. "
"A scientific Da Vinci Code ..."
"An unusual book, which plunges into murky waters, for our delight. "
Le Figaro litteraire
"An atypical crime-novel you will read in one go. A brilliant demonstration that this kind of prehistoric book is not just for ugly dinosaurs looking for Hollywood.”
