Murder on the Champ de Mars (Aimee Leduc Investigations #15) (Paperback)
Now out in paperback:
"Murder on the Champs de Mars is Cara Black’s fourteenth mystery in the Aimee Leduc series. Her baby daughter has been born, so now she is a working mom as well as seemingly never out of danger and intrigue. I like this series because it puts me in Paris with an intriguing cast of characters. This time she is trying to solve the disappearance of an elderly gypsy woman who may have important information about the death of Aimee’s father. The story is fast paced, exciting and did I mention that it is set in Paris? There is a handy map in the front so you can follow her adventures rue to rue. The ending is quite a surprise if you follow the series, so a good addition. Cara Black leaves me wondering what she has in mind for her next book."--Reviewed by Dora— From Dora Recommends
