Listener Opinions

    " I reread this book and also Murder in the Marais before and during my January trip to Paris. I found out that I enjoyed rereading them; I don't ever reread books, especially mysteries. One good thing about memory deterioration--I didn't remember "who done it." We stayed in the Bastille neighborhood, and it was so fun to read this book while actually being steps away from places mentioned in the book. I passed by the hospital where Aimee was treated for her sight loss, and went down the passage Boule Blanche where she was attacked. It was very cool. "

    " This was one of my favorites of the Aimee Leduc series so far. Of course there is the usual trying to quit smoking, trying to pay the bills, getting seriously injured more than once and more. And the story on this one had many twists and turns with much adventure and tension. I am eager to read the next installment to follow Aimee's recovery from her injuries. "

    " Awesome Aimee LeDuc mystery, as always. Allows the reader to acquaint themselves with Paris through the eyes of someone who lives it in daily life not just as a visitor. This is the third mystery in this series, that I've read. I look forward to reading more soon. "

    " If you like mysteries, smart and tough women, and Paris- this series is for you. Each book is a little better than the last, so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey Stephens | 1/20/2014

    " I only have about 20 pages left and still haven't figured out "who done it," though i have my suspicions. It's a really fun read especially if you are familiar with Paris. It's so fun to be able to picture where things are taking place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonny | 1/19/2014

    " Each successive book I read is better than the last one. I'm really enjoying this series. Plus, I'm learning a lot about Paris. That's good! "

    " The fourth Aimee Leduc mystery, set in Paris. In this installment, Aimee is attacked in a medieval passage in the Bastille district and suffers damage to her optic nerve, which leaves her to figure out who the murder is -- blind! Very tricky indeed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 12/2/2013

    " I love all of her mysteries - probably more because I love Paris then because of the actual stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 11/20/2013

    " Cara Black's Aimee Leduc Parisien mysteries are fun for any Francophile. I found this book confusing as the plot was intertwined with an interesting but tediously detailed account of the effects of an attack. Well worth the work for fans, but not the book to start with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah Ledford | 11/12/2013

    " Another fascinating read by Cara Black. I'm loving the Aimee Leduc series! "

    " temporarily blinded,aimee continues..not as good as the first 2 i read...i have 5 more yet "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 8/28/2013

    " I like the way the author slowly unravels the characters as the series progresses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronjoseph50 | 6/20/2013

    " and 1/2. A fun series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 6/5/2013

    " Enjoyed the ride! I like Black's protagonist and her sidekick. The pace is fast and the drama compelling. It gets a bit bogged down from time to time with all its twists and turns, but it is an enjoyable read. Love the Paris setting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 4/30/2013

    " Loaned to me by a friend. Really over the top. Halfway through, I still can't figure out if it's supposed to be ironic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vivian Valvano | 1/6/2013

    " It's not a great mystery, and she's certainly not Flaubert, but it IS Paris! I might read some of her other Paris based detective fiction to relax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 8/15/2012

    " This was the 1st one I read (not the 1st in series) and I found her going temporarily blind and then still conducting her detective activities around Paris rather hard to believe! Still, a good sense of place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 7/27/2012

    " The main character and the setting make this an enjoyable series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 5/14/2012

    " learn more about rene in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 3/4/2012

    " I am thoroughly enjoying her books. They are set in Paris, and I love reading about Paris! They are tricky to follow sometimes but always interesting and exciting. Very different! I like! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Windy | 9/10/2011

    " I'm loving this one so far. The library only had a large print copy. Normally I can only read so late into the night before my eyes start blurring the text - not with the large copy though, which is a blessing, as well as a curse since I did stay up too late reading it last night. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 7/23/2011

    " This was the best so far of this series and I am looking forward to more! I have to go back to Paris and explore more of that city! "
