Murder in Paris
Cara Black’s Latest Noir Mystery
Contracted to guard a famous portrait of Lenin only to discover it has gone missing and the contractor has been murdered, Aimée finds herself caught up in more than she can handle, including a blood vendetta and a buried Soviet secret. Dangerous people come out of the woodwork to threaten her and her colleagues and only Aimée can find the painting, stop the attackers and solve the murder. There are a lot of plotlines for one story, but this mystery is filled with enough consistently entertaining adventures to keep things moving at a quick pace.
Black is the author of 11 books in the bestselling Aimée Leduc series. Her first novel, Murder in the Marais, was nominated for an Anthony Award for best first novel. Black was born in Chicago and educated at San Francisco State University. She will speak at Mystery One Bookstore on Tuesday, April 2, at 5 p.m. and at Boswell Book Co. that evening at 7 p.m.
