A temp worker named Alex is abducted off the street in Paris, driven to a remote warehouse, and confined to a wooden crate by a man who tells her, ''I'm going to watch you die, you filthy whore.'' Police commandant Camille Verhoeven — diminutive, observant, and still smarting from the murder of his beloved wife — has few clues to go on. But before you can say Gone Girl, he discovers the crime is far from random and Alex anything but an ordinary victim. This gritty page-turner, Alex, is the first in a promised trilogy. Plus, s'il vous plaît. A-
