Murder in the Latin Quarter
"Yes, Cara Black fans, Aimee Leduc is back. This is the ninth of Black's novels about the chic, indomitable Parisian detective, and it has all the elements Black's readers have come to cherish: an engaging protagonist with a likable sidekick (her diminutive partner, Rene Friant), cops who hinder more than they help, villains with murky motives, grisly crimes and, above all, the unique Parisian atmosphere."-"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Kinsey Millhone turned loose in Before Sunset...In Leduc's ninth outing, Paris, as always, sparkles in all its gargoyled, dusty, cobblestoned glory."-"Entertainment Weekly "
