Review quote

Praise for "Murder in the Palais Royal" "Forever young, forever stylish, forever in love with Paris forever Aimee." " The New York Times Book Review" Such fun . . . a delightfully unbuttoned Audrey Hepburn for the twenty-first century. "Booklist" [Aimee s] two investigations link in a surprising way there s a really ripping ending and make for interestingly different and overlapping tension. And with Aimee really on the defensive, she s more appealingly tough yet vulnerable than ever. With its multiple strands, this work has a somewhat different feel from other Aimee Leduc novels. But never fear, it s still a winner. "Library Journal "Praise for the"New York Times"bestselling 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 As always, with airfares so high, Black offers armchair travelers a whirlwind trip through the City of Light. USAToday "show more
