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"
"No contemporary writer of noir mysteries evokes the spirit of Paris more than Cara Black in her atmospheric series starring P.I. Aimee Leduc...The fearless, risk-taking Aimee is constantly running, hiding, fighting and risking her life-all while dressed in vintage Chanel and Dior and Louboutin heels."""-"USA Today "
"The ninth mystery in Cara Black's irresistible series set in Paris...might well be the book we've been waiting for. Aimee Leduc, Black's adorably punkish sleuth, is in her element...One of this colorful series's most scenic itineraries."-"The New York Times Book Review"
"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 "

This was such a fun fun read! A friend gave it to me to read on my way to Paris, and devoured it the whole time! Have since wished to read more, but they are kinda expensive little books for a series ... Read full review
