She must clear herself and find the shooter before she finishes the job Just as Parisian private investigator Aimée Leduc is about to leave for New York City to pursue a lead on a man who might be her brother, her fellow detective, René Friant, is wounded by a near-fatal gunshot. Aimée is distraught over René's condition and horrified to be under suspicion for the attack; police have pegged her as the guilty party. At the same time, a large, mysterious sum appears in Leduc Detective's bank account, and tax authorities descend upon Aimée. It seems someone is impersonating her--someone who wants revenge.

Review quote

Praise for Murder in the Palais Royal "Forever young, forever stylish, forever in love with Paris--forever Aimée."
--The New York Times Book Review "Such fun . . . a delightfully unbuttoned Audrey Hepburn for the twenty-first century."
--Booklist "[Aimée's] two investigations link in a surprising way--there's a really ripping ending--and make for interestingly different and over-lapping tension. And with Aimée 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 Aimée Leduc novels. But never fear, it's still a winner."
--Library Journal Praise for the New York Times bestselling Aimée 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."
--USA Today
