Blood-Red Rivers, by Jean-Christophe Grangé
The Harvill Press, 1999 (UK)
originally published as Les Rivières Pourpres, 1998
translated by Ian Monk
The full review is here --admittedly, this book is not on this year's list of my favorite crime fiction reads -- I liked it fine up until a little past the halfway point when I wanted to toss it across the room because it became a little too farfetched for my tastes. But as they say, one person's tossed book is another person's treasure, and this book did grab multiple 4- and 5-star reviews.
