Aimee finds herself entangled with murders on the Rive Gauche...A Haitian woman arrives at the office of Leduc Detective and announces that she is Aimee's sister, her father's illegitimate daughter.
Aimee is thrilled. A virtual orphan since her mother's disappearance and her father's death, she has always wanted a sister.
Her partner, Rene, is wary of this stranger, but Aimee embraces her and soon finds herself involved in murky Haitian politics, which leads to murder in Paris's bohemian Latin quarter.
Praise for the Aimee Leduc series: 'If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black...It's so authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee.' Val McDermid "Cara Black books are good companions...Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better yet, go and bring them with you."-Alan Furst "Charming...Aimee is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed."-The New York Times Book Review "One of the best heroines in crime fiction." -Lee Child
