A Haitian woman arrives at the office of Leduc Detective and announces that she is Aimée’s sister, her father’s illegitimate daughter. Aimée is thrilled. A virtual orphan since her mother’s disappearance and her father’s death, she has always wanted a sister. Her partner, René, is wary of this stranger, but Aimée embraces her and soon finds herself involved in murky Haitian politics leading to murder. The setting is the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank of the Seine, in the old university district of Paris.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In Leduc’s ninth outing, Paris, as always, sparkles in all its gargoyled, dusty, cobblestoned glory.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “No contemporary writer of noir mysteries evokes the spirit of Paris more than Cara Black in her atmospheric series starring PI Aimée Leduc…The fearless, risk-taking Aimée is constantly running, hiding, fighting and risking her life—all while dressed in vintage Chanel and Dior and Louboutin heels.”

    USA Today

  •  “The ninth mystery in Cara Black's irresistible series set in Paris…might well be the book we’ve been waiting for. Aimée Leduc, Black’s adorably punkish sleuth, is in her element…One of this colorful series’ most scenic itineraries.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “[Murder in the Latin Quarter] has all the elements Black’s readers have come to cherish: an engaging protagonist with a likable sidekick (her diminutive partner, René Friant), cops who hinder more than they help, villains with murky motives, grisly crimes and, above all, the unique Parisian atmosphere.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • Selected for the April 2009 Indie Next List

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Susan Shea | 2/13/2014

    " I might have been predisposed to like this one especially, because I had stayed in the Quarter shortly before reading it. No one does Paris with the same authenticity Cara does! And I have a soft spot for Aimee, who moves better in heels and short skirts than I do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Chris | 2/12/2014

    " I couldn't get through this. There wasn't quite enough to the story or characters to maintain my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jennifer Piercey | 2/5/2014

    " This is a very fun series, especially if you love Paris. I thought this "mystery" however, was hard to get into; too contrived perhaps. But, it's so fun to picture myself walking in the neighborhoods and soaking in the atmospheres she describes. "

    " Another in the Aimee Leduc series with aimee as the detective and her partner Rene, the two of them really trying to provide computer security for their clients. Each mystery features another area of Paris. This, the Latin Quarter is one of the oldest. The books are really a very nice visit and an acquaintance with the city and history of Paris. "
