Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for Cara Black:

“The buzz is partly about her heroine’s hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm.”—Houston Chronicle

“Will have you wondering if it’s not too late to book that summer vacation to Paris you always wanted.”—USA Today

“The trendy byways of Paris belong to Aimée Leduc, the clever young sleuth in a winning series by Cara Black, an American with an uncanny feel for the street culture of old Parisian neighborhoods."—The New York Times Book Review

“The Parisienne Kinsey Milhone.”—Los Angeles Times

“One of the best heroines in crime fiction.”—Lee Child

Her partner, René, has been shot, and eyewitnesses have identified Aimée as the culprit. A mysterious deposit has been made to their firm’s bank account, interesting the taxman in their affairs. Someone seems to be impersonating Aimée; someone wants revenge. Two murders ensue. How do they relate to the youth whom Aimée’s testimony sent to jail in the very first Aimée Leduc investigation, Murder in the Marais?

Cara Black is the author of nine previous books in the best-selling Aimée Leduc series, all of which are available from the Soho Crime imprint. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and son and visits Paris frequently.

Review:

"Before Aime Leduc can go to New York to meet a previously unknown brother at the start of Black's solid, if less than suspenseful, 10th mystery to feature the Paris PI (after 2009's Murder in the Latin Quarter), dogged Inspector Melac arrests her for the nonfatal shooting of her partner, Ren Friant. A woman impersonating the stylish PI entered the Leduc Detective office and shot Ren with a Beretta. Someone, Aime decides, is trying to frame her. Improbably, Aime gains her release by pulling strings with her godfather, Commissaire Morbier, so she can investigate on her own. The trail leads her to Cardinal Richelieu's former Palais Royal, where bistro waitress Clmence Touvier schemes to blackmail the prominent mother of a neo-Nazi arsonist whose accomplices Aime helped convict. Clmence's strangulation in the Palais arcades ups the ante. In the end, Aime must confront dark revelations about her fugitive mother, who may have a part in the sinister plot against her." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
