Review quote

"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" No contemporary writer of noir mysteries evokes the spirit of Paris more than Cara Black in her atmospheric series starring P.I. Aimee Leduc The fearless, risk-taking Aimee 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, Aimee 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, Rene Friant), cops who hinder more than they help, villains with murky motives, grisly crimes and, above all, the unique Parisian atmosphere.
