Description

This riveting 20th installment entangled Parisian private investigator AiméeLeduc in a dangerous web of international spycraft and terrorist threats in Paris's 15th arrondissement. November 2001: in the wake of 9/11, Paris is living in a state of fear. For Aimée Leduc, November is bittersweet: the anniversary of her father's death and her daughter's third birthday fall on the same day. A gathering for family and friends is disrupted when a bomb goes off at the police laboratory—and Boris Viard, the partner of Aimée's friend Michou, is found unconscious at the scene of the crime with traces of explosives under his fingernails. Aimée doesn't believe Boris set the bomb. In an effort to prove this, she battles the police and his own lab colleagues, collecting conflicting eyewitness reports. When a member of the French secret service drafts Aimée to help investigate possible links to an Iranian Revolutionary guard and fugitive radicals who bombed Interpol in the 1980s, Aimée uncovers ties to a cold case of her father's. As Aimée scours the streets of the 15th arrondissement trying to learn the truth, she has to ask herself if she should succumb to pressure from Chloe's biological father and move them out to his farm in Brittany. But could Aimée Leduc ever leave Paris?

        January 3, 2022
        In bestseller Black’s riveting 20th Aimée Leduc investigation (after 2019’s Murder in Bel-Air), tensions are high in Paris two months after 9/11. Still, life—including a birthday party for PI Aimée’s three-year-old daughter, Chloé—goes on as usual, at least until an explosion at the nearby police laboratory. The horror of that bombing becomes personal as Boris Viard, a lab employee and Aimée’s good friend, becomes a suspect when trace amounts of the explosive are found on him. Meeting resistance every step of the way from the police and Boris’s coworkers, Aimée tries to determine whether the crime might involve one of the unsolved cases of her late detective father. As Aimée wends her way through the darker parts of the City of Light in search of a possible tie to an Iranian terrorist organization, she must also resolve where her relationship with Melac, Chloé’s father, is headed just as another man reenters her life. Rich with detail about life in Paris, this entry illuminates the complications that friends and family can unwittingly create. Black shows no signs of losing steam. Agent: Katherine Fausset, Curtis Brown.

      • content: Narrator Carine Montbertrand returns to portray the characters that make up PI Aim�e Leduc's Paris. With Montbertrand's perfect French pronunciation of phrases and place names coupled with Black's rich descriptions of settings, including their historical significance, listeners will find themselves easily drawn into Leduc's world. Those not familiar with the backstories of Leduc, her family, and friends may be challenged to understand the complicated relationships in this 20th addition to the series. Leduc, while struggling with single motherhood, is drawn into an investigation of a bombing involving a close friend, and possibly one of her father's past cases. Montbertrand masterfully differentiates the characters, including a 16-year-old witness. Fans will appreciate this ride-along with Leduc, which focuses on the tense and fearful world following 9/11.
