Murder in the Bastille (Aimee Leduc Investigation)by Cara Black
Synopses & Reviews
Aimée Leduc is all dressed up in her new Chinese silk jacket, supposedly an "exclusive," for dinner with a difficult client at an elegant restaurant in the Bastille district. She is chagrined to see that the woman seated at the very next table is wearing an identical jacket. When the woman leaves her cell phone on the table, Aimée follows her to return it and is attacked in the shadowy Passage Boule Blanche. When she regains consciousness, Aimée finds that she is blind. Nevertheless, she is told she is lucky; the woman she was following was found in the next passage, murdered.
Aimée is determined to identify her attacker. Was he actually a serial killer targeting showy blondes as the police insist? Was he really after the other woman? Or was Aimée his intended victim?
"Charming....Aimée is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Black's fourth is her best yet, with complex, appealing characters, a crisp, well-paced mystery, and a setting like no other." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"[A]bsorbing....Black loads her plot with...familiar villains, but she compensates the reader with the rich ambiance of Paris as well as a realistic and moving account of Aimée's coming to terms with her new condition." Publishers Weekly
"Cara Black books are good companions, and Murder in the Bastille especially so. Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better, go and bring them with you." Alan Furst, author of Kingdom of Shadows
"Paris is one of my favorite cities in all the world; Black's books are a fine way to revisit it." New Orleans Times-Picayune
"[An] excellent, gritty series....Perhaps not as gripping as others in the series — it can be frustrating to have Aimée in the dark — this is nevertheless affecting in its psychological portrayal and a darn good read." Library Journal
April in Paris is a time for crime when a woman is blinded after an attack in the Passage Boule Blanche. Was the attacker actually a serial killer, or was he really after another woman who was similarly dressed — and found dead in the next passage?
April in Paris, time for crime.
