    DescriptionAimee Leduc is happy her long-time business partner Rene has found a girlfriend. Really, she is. It's not her fault if she can't suppress her doubts about the relationship; Rene is moving way too fast, and Aimee's instincts tell her Meizi, this supposed love of Rene's life, isn't trustworthy. And her misgivings may not be far off the mark: Meizi disappears during a Chinatown dinner to take a phone call and never comes back to the restaurant. Minutes later, the body of a young man, a science prodigy and volunteer at the nearby Musee, is found shrink-wrapped in an alleyway--with Meizi's photo in his wallet. Aimee does not like this scenario one bit, but she can't figure out how the murder is connected to Meizi's disappearance. The dead genius was sitting on a discovery that has France's secret service keeping tabs on him. Now they're keeping tabs on Aimee. A missing young woman, an illegal immigrant raid in progress, botched affairs of the heart, dirty policemen, the French secret service, cutting-edge science secrets and a murderer on the loose--what has she gotten herself into? And can she get herself--and her friends--back out of it all alive?

    Review quote
    "Outstanding.... Readers will relish realistic villains and an evocative atmosphere that begs for a trip to the City of Lights."--"Publishers Weekly "(STARRED review) "The Paris investigator is a perpetual-motion machine, and she's almost always inappropriately dressed for highspeed galivanting: heels, miniskirts, leopard prints--Aimee never sacrifices style for convenience.... Thickening her plot like a French chef stirring coq au vin, Black throws a murdered scientist, a human-trafficking scandal, the Knights Templar, and revelations about Aimee's long-presumed-dead mother into the pot, leaving readers nearly as breathless as Aimee, who hurtles her way toward the conclusion. Fans of the series know the formula and don't mind a bit that it rarely varies. Paris never needs a new look, and neither does Aimee Leduc." --"Booklist" "The pace accelerates as fast as Aimee's Vespa. The details of the series, Aimee's love of vintage couture, her love life, and the specter of her mother's disappearance, all make welcome appearances here. "Murder at the Lanterne Rouge "is wonderfully plotted, and Cara Black ties together the past and present with elan." --"New York Journal of Books" Praise for the Aimee Leduc series: "Transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French."--Alan Furst "Wry, complex, sophisticated, intensely Parisian.... One of the very best heroines in crime fiction today."--Lee Child "So authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee."--Val McDermid "From the Hardcover edition."
