Summary (From the publisher):

Mademoiselle de Scudéri is one of the earliest examples of the classic murder mystery. Characterised by Hoffmann's remarkable ingenuity and attention to detail, it has been the inspiration for a host of thriller and crime writers.

Parisian goldsmith Monsieur Cardillac is a genius at his craft. Greatly admired throughout Paris, he is renowned for his works of exquisite and matchless beauty. So much so, that it seems the desire to possess his creations is enough to drive even to murder.
