Black, Cara - Murder in the Rue De Paradis

“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

As Aimée is about to find happiness at last, Yves, her fiancé of a single night, is killed. Was the murderer a woman in a chador? Or a homosexual trick? Finding out who cut her lover’s throat involves Aimée in Kurdish and Turkish politics as she tries to track down his contacts above and beneath the streets of Paris.
