Reviews

If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black... It's so authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee. - Val McDermidIf the cobblestones of the old Marais district of Paris could only talk, they might tell a tale as haunting as the one Cara Black spins in her evocative debut mystery, Murder in the Marais...the thoughtful story uses the murder of a Jewish war survivor as a window on the still unsettled past. Aimee Leduc, the gutsy young sleuth who is hired by a hunter of Nazi war criminals investigates...related in flashback scenes about a Gestapo officer and the Jewish girl who loved him, the memories are sad enough to melt stone. - NY Times Book ReviewThis standout first novel introduces dauntless private investigator Aimee Leduc...a thrilling quick-paced chase involving neo-Nazis, corrupt government officials and fierce anti-Semitism. The suspense is high. Black knows Paris well and in her first-rate debut she deftly combines fascinating anecdotes from the city's war year with classic images of the City of Lights. - Publishers Weekly starred reviewAn accomplished, absorbing debut whose matter-of-fact heroine can't predict the ways her simple case of multiple murder will end up end up entangling the economic future of Europe. - Kirkus Review
