    DescriptionPraise for "Murder in the Rue de Paradis" and the Aimee Leduc series: "Once again, Black has crafted a superb tale informed by current political tensions, showing how they play out in French society while suggesting larger implications. The plot itself is swift and assured, the language elegantly gritty, the characterization deft, and the end a truly satisfying surprise."--"Library Journal" (starred review) "Riveting. . . . Aimee Leduc, smart, spirited and sassy, takes the reader on an action-packed ride fueled by the hidden secrets of her beloved Paris."--"Publishers Weekly" "Leduc has a thorough grasp of the practicalities of investigation, plus a penchant for undercover work that will have readers on pins and needles."--"San Francisco 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" As Aimee is about to find happiness at last, Yves, her fiance of a single night, is killed. Was the murderer a woman in a chador? Or a homosexual trick? Finding out who cut her lover's throat involves Aimee in Kurdish and Turkish politics as she tries to track down his contacts above and beneath the streets of Paris.

    Review quote
    Praise for the Aimee Leduc series set in Paris: "Compelling. . . . Aimee makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Charming. . . . Aimee 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
