Just as Aimée is about to leave for New York City to follow up on a lead about a possible younger brother, her partner in Leduc Detective, René Friant, is wounded by a near-fatal gun shot. Eyewitnesses identify Aimée as the culprit. The police have pegged her as the guilty party. Aimée is distraught over René’s condition and horrified to be under suspicion.
At the same time, a large, mysterious sum appears in their firm’s bank account, and the tax authorities descend upon Aimée. She has no idea who would have sent this money.
It seems that someone is impersonating Aimée, someone who wants revenge. But for what? Two murders ensue. How do they relate to the youth whom Aimée’s testimony sent to jail in the very first Aimée Leduc investigation, Murder in the Marais?

    " I really like all Cara Black's books just for the Paris atmosphere. She tackles a different quartier with each book and makes me feel like I'm there. Actually I feel depressed that I am *not* there. They are not literary masterpieces (like Jacqueline Winspear mysteries), but they are loads of fun. I also love the descriptions of Aimee LeDuc's wardrobe -- retro couture. She make it seem easy to throw together fab outfits. I guess it is for Parisians. "

    " Well written enough that the heroine being poor but very stylish -- a minor character who works in a fashion house assumes she's a model -- plus goddaughter of police commissioner and a detective partner whose a dwarf, a judo expert and a top notch hacker, weren't enough to make me put it down. Not well written enough to get me to pick up another book in the series though. "

    " You just have to love Aimee Leduc for a fun summer read. A mix of 30s Noir and the New Millenium computer hacking and all kinds of interesting tidbits about places you didn't know about in Paris - sometimes can be outright funny -like when a character says "I'll play him like a piano" -can't exactly imagine someone saying that in 2010 but it keeps the flavor of the underbelly noir scene going. I would love to go with Aimee on a shopping trip to the flea markets for some of her vintage clothes. "
