Murder in the Rue de Paradis

About the Author

Cara Black, author of the "New York Times" Bestselling Aimee Leduc series, is a frequent visitor to Paris; this is her eighth mystery set there. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and son.


Anthony Award nominee Black (Murder in the Marais) has her plucky heroine in Paris investigating the murder of an on-again, off-again lover. Black initially does more travel-guide writing than focusing on the potentially intense international conspiracy that is both timely and often stereotypical in its political backdrop. Narrator Carine Montbertrand, also a children's/YA author, handles the multiple accents and languages well, but she has an odd cadence that takes some getting used to. A slow starter, but recommended. [The Soho Crime hc received a starred review, LJ 11/1/07.-Ed.]-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Praise for the Aimee Leduc series set in Paris: "Compelling. . . . Aimee makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Charming. . . . Aimee 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""The buzz is partly about her heroine's hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm."--"Houston Chronicle""Cara Black books are good companions. . . . Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better yet, go and bring them with you."--Alan Furst "Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us.""--Chicago Tribune""If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead."--Val McDermid
