About the Author

Cara Black is the author of sixteen books in the New York Times bestselling Aim e Leduc series. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and visits Paris frequently.


Intrepid Aimee Leduc strives to clear the name of a childhood friend, policewoman Laure Rousseau, who's charged with shooting her partner to death, in Black's chilling sixth novel to feature the Paris PI (after 2005's Murder in Clichy). Aimee knows the solution to proving Laure's innocence lies somewhere in the hilltop maze of the seedy Montmartre neighborhood-perhaps with a boy who says he witnessed the murder, or an aging prostitute, or any of a number of toughs or even Corsican separatists. Set in January 1995, the book vividly depicts a gritty, working-class part of Paris where rents don't always get paid and not everyone has a bed for the night. Black succeeds in making the reader feel the damp, the snow, the fear. In the process of helping Laure, Aimee not only resolves a past police scandal involving her dead father but gains in compassion and wisdom. (Mar.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Murder in Montmartre "I always wondered why I used to quicken my step in Montmartre. After reading Cara Black's wonderful book, now I know. As atmospheric as anything by John le Carr ."--Philip Kerr, author of Berlin Noir "As always, the Parisian setting is vividly evoked, the heroine's wardrobe is chic, and the action is non-stop. The story has its Nancy Drew elements--secret passageways, confrontations in darkened graveyards, chases across cobblestones in spike heels . . . If you long for the adventure-filled stories that got you hooked on reading in the first place, you'll enjoy this."
--Mystery Scene "Chilling . . . The book vividly depicts a gritty, working-class part of Paris . . . Black succeeds in making the reader feel the damp, the snow, the fear."
--Publishers Weekly
Praise for the New York Times bestselling Aim e Leduc series
"If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead."
--Val McDermid "Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better, go and bring them with you."
--Alan Furst "She makes Paris come alive as no one else has since Georges Simenon."
--Stuart Kaminsky "If you've never been to Paris, or you'd like to go back soon, let Cara Black transport you there."
--Linda Fairstein "Charming. . . . Aim e is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed."
--The New York Times Book Review
