Murder in the Rue de Paradis : An Aimee Leduc Investigations, Vol. 8
Aimee is thrilled when her onetime lover, Yves, an investigative journalist, returns from his assignment in Egypt and proposes marriage. But after a single night of bliss, his body is discovered in a Paris doorway. His throat has been slit. Aimee is determined to avenge him. The trail leads to a sleeper jihadist and embroils her in Turkish and Kurdish politics.
In Black's riveting eighth Aimee Leduc mystery (after 2007's Murder on the Ile Saint-Louis), Aimee reconnects in the summer of 1995 with a former boyfriend, investigative journalist Yves Robert, while Paris still reels from the St.-Michel Metro bombings. But after a romantic evening when Yves even proposes marriage, Aimee is shocked to be called in to identify Yves's body at the morgue. Believing he was working undercover, Aimee ignores the sanitized police report and enlists her partner and best friend, Rene Friant, to help solve Yves's murder. Her investigation ignites a chain reaction that reveals assassination plots, informers and secret contracts surrounding the strained relationship of a militant Turkish group and the Kurdish Labor Party, all leading back to Yves. Aimee Leduc, smart, spirited and sassy, takes the reader on an action-packed ride fueled by the hidden secrets of her beloved Paris. (Mar.)
