Spirited Aimée Leduc, a private investigator based in Paris, has been introduced to the Cao Dai temple by her partner, René, who urges her to learn to meditate as a counterbalance to her frenetic lifestyle. A Vietnamese nun asks her for a favor—to hand over a check and bring a package back to the temple. But this act of kindness ends in a stranger’s death and leaves her with a bullet wound in the arm, a check for 50,000 francs, and a trove of ancient jade artifacts whose provenance is a mystery.

The French secret service, a group of veterans of the war in Indochina, some wealthy ex-colonials, and contending international oil companies all claim the jade. They will stop at nothing to gain possession of it. And the nun has disappeared. Aimée has promised to avoid danger, but it continues to seek her out.

    " We've come up in French history to be dealing with the veterans of Dien Bien Phu and the mystery of this story lies in Cambodia though of course it is acted out in the arrondisement of the outcasts. Aimee has regained her sight, but too much hard-boiled detecting may lose it for her as it loses her the love of Guy, the gentle doctor, who cannot sanction her "wildness." The theme of losing and being afraid as against forcing herself forward neamoins plus is a constant one. I like Aimee less and less. "

    " The fifth installment in the Aimee Leduc mystery series, set in Paris. In this book, Aimee is trying to do a favor for a Vietnamese nun at the Buddhist temple where she's learning to meditate when she ends up with a priceless cache of jade that a lot of dangerous people seem to want. I love this book because of the post-colonial themes in it. "

    " I really enjoyed reading this book, maybe a little more than the others in the series so far. I think I am getting to know Aimee Leduc better in each book and I am liking how, in spite of her being brilliant, she has so many human frailties. As usual, there are many characters, an evolving story line, poorly matched love life, needing to heal from injuries from the last book, getting new injuries in this book, and more. There is a map of the Clichy district in Paris in the front of the book. I have never been to Paris, but I would think that anyone who has would have fun following the map as the the story enfolds.
