Description

Someone is spying on American author Helen Hancock. While in Paris to conduct research and teach a small class of writers, she discovers a spy camera hidden in her room at the Sorbonne Hotel. She notifies the US Embassy, and former FBI profiler Hugo Marston is dispatched to investigate.
Almost immediately, the stakes are raised from surveillance to murder when the hotel employee who appears to be responsible for bugging Hancock's suite is found dead. The next day, a salacious video clip explodes across the Internet, showing the author in the embrace of one of her writing students—both are naked, and nothing is left to the imagination.
As more bodies pile up, the list of suspects narrows; but everyone at the Sorbonne Hotel has something to hide, and no one is being fully honest with Hugo. He teams up with Lieutenant Camille Lerens to solve the case, but a close call on the streets of Paris proves that he could be the killer's next target.

        June 26, 2017
        Pryor’s entertaining seventh Hugo Marston novel finds the cultured head of security at the American embassy in Paris and former FBI profiler attending the funeral of actress Isabel Severin, a key player in 2016’s The Paris Librarian. After the service, Hugo is approached by bestselling American romance author Helen Hancock, who informs him that she suspects she’s being stalked. He’s not inclined to take her claim seriously—until Helen finds a spy cam in her hotel room. When hotel employee Andrew Baxter is stabbed to death in a stairwell in the hotel, the case takes an ominous turn, especially after Hugo discovers that it was Andrew who planted the camera in Helen’s room. The mystery deepens when one of Helen’s writing students is murdered and Hugo is attacked outside his own apartment. A fascinating cast, an intriguing subplot that delves into Hugo’s past, and a gorgeous Parisian setting add to the story’s appeal. Agent: Ann Collette, Rees Literary Agency.

        July 1, 2017
        In the seventh Hugo Marston mystery (after The Paris Librarian, 2016), the Paris embassy's Holemesian head of security unmasks a calculating killer while facing fallout resurfacing from his FBI days. Hugo senses melodrama when celebrity romance novelist Helen Hancock approaches him with fears that she's being stalked, but Hancock's fears are confirmed when she finds a camera hidden in her hotel room. Hoping to protect Hancock's privacy, Hugo reaches out to his favorite crime-solving partner at the Prefecture, Lieutenant Camille Lerens. Unfortunately, a killer finds the stalker before they do: videos from Hancock's room are discovered on a murdered hotel employee's laptop. As Hugo and Camille work on uncovering Hancock's connection to the murder, more killings follow, and Hugo is forced to question the obvious scenario that the killings are a stalker's revenge. The flawlessly constructed whodunit sharply contrasts with the gritty flashbacks to Hugo's past, a subplot that rewards series fans with a new layer of depth to the central characters.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
