Aimée Leduc is all dressed up in her new Chinese silk jacket, supposedly an “exclusive,” for dinner with a difficult client at an elegant restaurant in the Bastille district. She is chagrined to see that the woman seated at the very next table is wearing an identical jacket. When the woman leaves her cell phone on the table, Aimée follows her to return it and is attacked in the shadowy Passage Boule Blanche. When she regains consciousness, Aimée finds that she is blind. Nevertheless, she is told she is lucky; the woman she was following was found in the next passage, murdered. 

Aimée is determined to identify her attacker. Was he actually a serial killer targeting showy blondes? Was he really after the other woman? Or was Aimée his intended victim?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Charming...Aimee is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city’s historic streets and secret byways with their eyes closed.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Black loads her plot with Eastern European thugs, aggressive developers, and other familiar villains, but she compensates the reader with the rich ambiance of Paris as well as a realistic and moving account of Aimee’s coming to terms with her new condition.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Black’s fourth is her best yet, with complex, appealing characters, a crisp, well-paced mystery, and a setting like no other.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “[An] excellent, gritty series...a darn good read.”

    Library Journal

About the Narrator

Carine Montbertrand is an award-winning narrator of dozens of audiobooks. When she first started working in the 1990s, she sounded younger than her years and specialized in children’s and young adult titles. Since then she has expanded to fiction for adults and has recorded everything from murder mysteries to fantasy and inspirational titles. She is adept with dialects and accents, voicing characters from countries around the world. She also specializes in English language titles with a French flavor, as she is half French. With her audiobooks, she has the opportunity to tell wonderful stories while finding voices for men, women, children, and sometimes ghosts and extraterrestrials.
