Author(s): Cara Black
From the author of the highly praised, award-winning Murder in the Marais comes this second Aimee Leduc investigation. Set in a working class neighbourhood in Paris, tensions run high as a hunger strike to protest strict immigration laws escalates among the Algerian residents. Aimee barely escapes death in a car bombing, turning her attention from the exclusive Place Vendome to the underground North African network, where she must search among Islamic fundamentalists and Algerian nationalists for the cold, dark truth.
"...a winning mystery, as stylish and sexy as the city Cara Black knows so well." - George Pelecanos; "If the cobblestones could only talk, they might tell a tale as haunting as the one that Cara Black spins in her evocative debut mystery." - New York Times Book Review
