Synopsis

Synopsis

A Haitian woman arrives at the office of Leduc Detective and announces that she is Aimée’s sister, her father’s illegitimate daughter. Aimée is thrilled. A virtual orphan since her mother’s disappearance and her father’s death, she has always wanted a sister. Her partner, René, is wary of this stranger, but Aimée embraces her and soon finds herself involved in murky Haitian politics, which leads to murder. The setting is the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank of the Seine, the old university district of Paris.

Praise

Praise

"The nineth mystery in Cara Black's irresistible series set in Paris . . . might well be the book we've been waiting for. Aimée Leduc, Black's adorably punkish sleuth, is in her element."—The New York Times Book Review

"Kinsey Millhone turned loose in Before Sunset. . . . In Leduc's ninth outing, Paris, as always, sparkles in all its gargoyled, dusty, cobblestoned glory."—Entertainment Weekly

“No contemporary writer of noir mysteries evokes the spirit of Paris more than Cara Black in her atmospheric series starring P.I. Aimée Leduc…The fearless, risk-taking Aimée is constantly running, hiding, fighting and risking her life-all while dressed in vintage Chanel and Dior and Louboutin heels.USA Today

"If you were weaned on the feminist PIs of the '70s and '80s like Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski and Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone, you may be looking for successors. Cara Black's series set in Paris is worthy."—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Black at her peak, with rich historical background and a vivid sense of place supporting her compelling narrative."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Yes, Cara Black fans, Aimée Leduc is back. This is the ninth of Black's novels about the chic, indomitable Parisian detective, and it has all the elements Black's readers have come to cherish: an engaging protagonist with a likable sidekick (her diminutive partner, René Friant), cops who hinder more than they help, villains with murky motives, grisly crimes and, above all, the unique Parisian atmosphere.”—San Francisco Chronicle
