Murder In Pigalle
June, 1998: Paris's sticky summer heat is even more oppressive than usual as rowdy French football fans riot in anticipation of the World Cup. Private investigator AimEe Leduc has been trying to slow down her hectic lifestyle--she's five months pregnant and has the baby's well-being to think about now. But then disaster strikes close to home. A serial rapist has been terrorizing Paris's Pigalle neighborhood, following teenage girls home and attacking them in their own houses. Zazie, the 13-year-old daughter of the proprietor of AimEe's favorite cafE, has disappeared. The police aren't mobilizing quickly enough, and when Zazie's desperate parents approach AimEe for help, she knows she couldn't say no even if she wanted to.

"Chic and utterly charming... This book has a darker tone than earlier ones in the series, but it still has Black's distinctive flair."
"--"Carole E. Barrowman, "The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
"One tough mother-to-be...The treasured Aimee Leduc series keeps to the high standard of the series while nicely deepening Aimee as a character and leading her in a new direction."
"--"Barbara Hoffert, "Library Journal"
"The combination of vividly evoked Parisian neighborhoods and a bewitching, stylish heroine continues to make this series as tasty as a chunk of French chocolate."
Praise for the Aimee Leduc series
"Transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French."
"Wry, complex, sophisticated, intensely Parisian ... One of the very best heroines in crime fiction today."
"So authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee."
"[Cara Black] is on to a good thing: each of her novels is set in a colorful Parisian neighborhood--and there are a lot of them. The cumulative result of reading this addictive series is a sort of mini-tour of the city, as seen through a filter of fictional murder ... Leduc is always a reliable and charming guide to the city's lesser-known corners."
--"The Seattle Times"
"Black creates rich, plausible characters, giving them individuality and depth."
--"San Francisco Gate"
