After a shrinkwrapped body turns up outside the Meizi's birthday party in Chinatown minutes after she disappears, Aime is determined to find out the truth. The situation becomes even more confusing when the victim turns out to be a genius with links to a huge scientific secret being monitored by the French secret service.

Review:

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."
--Columbus Dispatch

"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--Aimée 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 Aimée's long-presumed-dead mother into the pot, leaving readers nearly as breathless as Aimée, 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 Aimée 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 élan."
--New York Journal of Books

Praise for the Aimée 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
