Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monty | 2/11/2014

    " As usual, I enjoyed reading this next Aimee Leduc book. There are a few more left in the series for me to read. As usual a social/political issue was addressed--this time it had to do with Kurds, Turks and an Islamic terrorist group. More of her personal life is revealed, including an encounter with someone who knew her mother in the old days. I think this is a worthwhile series to read. If you want to try a book out, it is probably best to start with the first in the series and to read them in chronological order. "

    " Fasinating! These books are as much great myteries but history lessons about the many lives lived in Paris. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val Sanford | 2/8/2014

    " Aimee finds trouble everywhere. With her Chanel lipstick and red high tops she can fit in everywhere, but she is not always welcome. In this mystery Aimee is chasing ghosts while a sleeper jihadist is awakened to assassinate a visiting prime minister. Since the evidence says the same assassin is responsible for killing her beloved Yves, Aimee can't just walk away. Black explores the world of Islamic terrorists and journalism in this book; I want more Aimee. "

    " This is the first book I've read in this series - though not the first in the series. Cute premise, okay story. The descriptions of Paris are fascinating as well as her take on the current political climate. For fun, I recommend all Aimee Leduc fans google 18 Rue de Louvre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elli | 1/19/2014

    " Another in the delightful Aimee Leduc Investigation series. Another visit to another section of Paris meeting the people, observing the area, learning of it's significance in times past and the effects on the recent past with more modern issues. Aimee herself is looking into her past and each episode offers a bit more about her parents, particularly her mother who disappeared when she was still a small child. This particular episode involves Muslim jihadists and other terrorist organizations operating somewhat under the cover of the Kurdish refugees living in Paris. Aimee's off again, on again boyfriend Yves has come back. He explains more about his intentions and asks her to marry him. He is an excellent investigative journalist and his job holds a lot of danger... and he is murdered! It's a fast moving story and a good one. Very good read! "

    " Decent mystery but I wish it had been a bit longer with more inf about the secondary characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole Gregory | 12/19/2013

    " I bought this book at a used book store, not even realizing this was a series, but oh my god, have I fallen in love with Aimee! She is sharp as a tack, realistic, and my new favorite detective. I have already bought the first book in this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deidre | 12/6/2013

    " Great summer reading. Fantastic descriptions of Paris, as usual. "

    " I liked the book, but for some reason it kept reminding me of and Evanovich book...huh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/6/2013

    " Latest installment of mystery series set in Paris. Fast paced with great descriptions of parts of Paris that the tourists don't see. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Snow | 4/1/2013

    " Set in Paris. Fast-paced. Well done. "

    " Glad to have a new mystery series set in Paris. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Korleski | 10/4/2012

    " The character development was good -- Aimee Leduc is real throughout -- but it seemed very light. Enjoyable as a late-night read, and not so compelling as to have to stay up all night to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 6/3/2012

    " I read this book 2nd even though it was the 8th in the series. It had a tie in to the the first book, however there was a major character development that caused me to I wish I had read some of the others first. However I still enjoyed the mystery and need to plan my trip to Paris ASAP. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 4/27/2012

    " I wish we could do 1/2 stars - I would give this a 3.5. It's the second of the series that I've read. Strong sense of place - paris. I enjoy hearing the French words (I listened to the book). It was a good mystery and very enjoyable. I'll read more in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 4/10/2012

    " Based on reviews of her work, I thought Cara Black would write a more sophisticated murder mystery. She does make a few -somewhat- profound cultural observations, but they are second to the novel's intent. An "okay" read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rod Zemke | 1/24/2012

    " Would not recommend. A book full of "Americanisms" set in Paris. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 11/17/2011

    " Not familiar w/ this arrondissment so not only - as usual - was the story ever so good but it was fun being in this new place... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Duretta | 10/19/2011

    " Very atmospheric thriller-mystery with a timely Kurdish-terrorist assassin plot. It never really grabbed me, however; the spunky female detective lead lacks dimension and I never really felt her connection to the murder victim. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 10/12/2011

    " exciting and a great escape to Paris! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 7/29/2011

    " Still hooked on these books. Whenever I need a little Paris Noir, I will read one of Cara Black's murder mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 4/2/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 8/29/2010

    " Aimee is truly in need of self control. She is very spontaneous and this gets her in dangerous situations. She is a control freak that cannot allow anyone else to do something. She must do it herself. This part of her is driving me crazy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracings | 8/20/2010

    " So-so mystery. Hard to believe that the author can absorb the atmosphere of France on periodic visits to the continent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 6/21/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 9/22/2009

    " This book is an engaging read if you like Paris & mysteries. However it is not well written with too many side stories & very uneven writing. Aimee leduc is not a very believable character. The prtrayal of contemporary paris is fascinating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 9/1/2009

    " I love Paris and as I haven't traveled there in awhile, this mystery gave me a mini tour and put me in a part of the city that I didn't know. I loved the intrigue and the involvement with Iran and computer hacking... recommended. "
