Synopses & Reviews
Praise for the Aime Leduc series set in Paris:
Compelling. . . . Aime makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior.-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Charming. . . . Aime is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed.-The New York Times Book Review
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
Cara Black books are good companions. . . . 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 yet, go and bring them with you.-Alan Furst
Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us.-Chicago Tribune
If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead.-Val McDermid
Aime is thrilled when her one-time lover, Yves, an investigative journalist, returns from his assignment in Egypt and proposes marriage. But after a single night of bliss, his body is discovered in a Paris doorway. His throat has been slit. Aime is determined to avenge him. The trail leads to a sleeper jihadist and embroils her in Turkish and Kurdish politics.
Cara Black is a frequent visitor to Paris; this is her eighth mystery set there. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and son.
