Description

It is the color of the Virgin Mary's cloak, a dazzling pigment desired by artists, an exquisite hue infused with danger, adventure, and perhaps even the super natural. It is . . . SacrÉ Bleu

In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the height of his creative powers try to take his life . . . and then walk a mile to a doctor's house? Who was the crooked little "color man" Vincent claimed was stalking him? And why had Vincent recently become terrified of a certain shade of blue?

These questions confront baker-turned-painter Lucien Lessard and bon vivant Henri Toulouse-Lautrec as they seek the truth of their friend's untimely death, a quest that will lead them on a surreal odyssey through late 19th-century Paris.

A delectable confection of intrigue, passion, and art historywith can-can girls, baguettes, and fine French cognac thrown in for good measureSacrÉ Bleu is another masterpiece from the one, the only, Christopher Moore.
