Product description

A Haitian woman arrives at the office of Leduc Detective and announces that she is Aimee's sister, her father's illegitimate daughter. Aimee is thrilled. A virtual orphan since her mother's disappearance and her father's death, she has always wanted a sister. Her partner, Rene, is wary of this stranger, but Aimee 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.

Review quote

"No contemporary writer of noir mysteries evokes the spirit of Paris more than Cara Black in her atmospheric series starring P.I. Aimee Leduc."--"USA Today" "The nineth mystery in Cara Black's irresistible series set in Paris . . . might well be the book we've been waiting for. Aimee 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" "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
