Review:

"Outstanding.... Readers will relish realistic villains and an evocative atmosphere that begs for a trip to the City of Lights." "Publishers Weekly "(STARRED review)
The Paris investigator is a perpetual-motion machine, and she s almost always inappropriately dressed for highspeed galivanting: heels, miniskirts, leopard prints Aimee never sacrifices style for convenience . Thickening her plot like a French chef stirring coq au vin, Black throws a murdered scientist, a human-trafficking scandal, the Knights Templar, and revelations about Aimee s long-presumed-dead mother into the pot, leaving readers nearly as breathless as Aimee, who hurtles her way toward the conclusion. Fans of the series know the formula and don t mind a bit that it rarely varies. Paris never needs a new look, and neither does Aimee Leduc. "Booklist"
The pace accelerates as fast as Aimee s Vespa. The details of the series, Aimee s love of vintage couture, her love life, and the specter of her mother s disappearance, all make welcome appearances here. "Murder at the Lanterne Rouge "is wonderfully plotted, and Cara Black ties together the past and present with elan. "New York Journal of Books"

Praise for the Aimee Leduc series:
"Transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French." Alan Furst
"Wry, complex, sophisticated, intensely Parisian.... One of the very best heroines in crime fiction today." Lee Child
"So authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee." Val McDermid

"From the Hardcover edition.""

Praise for "Murder at the Lanterne Rouge"
Black expertly weaves the social issues of Chinese sweatshops and illegal immigrants with current science and computer technology, 14th-century Templars and guilds, and the local police and French secret service.
