Quotes & Awards

  • “Addictive…Leduc is always a reliable and charming guide to the city’s lesser-known corners.”

    Seattle Times

  • “The ideal mix of the personal, the political, the puzzling, and the Parisian make Aimée’s latest a perfect pleasure.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Aimée is a fantastic guide as she invites the reader along on an excursion of Paris on the back of her scooter, which most tourists traveling to the City of Light never see. Back streets and alleys, smoky bistros and Paris mansions set the backdrop for this mystery.”

    New York Journal of Books

  • “One of our favorite mystery authors.”

    Sacramento Bee

  • “The rest of us will follow Aimée anywhere, the blinder the alley the better, thrilled to hitch a ride on the back of her scooter.”

    Booklist

  • “Full of French political intrigue…Atmospheric.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A Kirkus Reviews “New and Notable Title”, March 2011

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Roger Croft | 2/20/2014

    " I'm an addict for some crime writers. I like Black because she takes me back to my favorite city --Paris. And she's pretty good with the atmospherics of the City of Light. Her detective, Aimee, is clearly an attractive young lady with lots of intuitive brainpower and glamorous looks (sometimes there's a bit of chic lit that rears its ugly head). This latest effort is a bit heavy on the machine-gun rat-tat-tat prose which Black seems to have pioneered. But it's a quick read with, I hope, a surprise ending. Basque terrorism plays a role here, facilitating Black's praiseworthy efforts to give historic background and perspective to her stories. "

    " Set in Paris, which was enjoyable. "

    " Finally, Aimee Leduc is in the 16th, and even more specifically, Place Victor Hugo and Passy. In 2000, I lived just off Place Victor Huge on rue Mesnil, where Aimee runs past the wonder Marche St. Didier, and hides out in a cafe on the Place. The usual cliff-hanging (literally-- Aimee is usually hanging off something or other) conclusion is at the sinister-looking Lauriston reservoir, which I walked by many, many times. Aimee is her usual interpid self and the situations she gets in and out of are not very believable, but we Paris-philes suppress our disbelief and just delight in the descriptions of the City of Lights, Aimee's vintage clothing, and her "bad boys." When will the dwarf Rene ever get a chance??? "

    " Amusing, not great writing but I like the characters and the setting in Paris. "
