Description


"Cara Black books are good companions, and "Murder in the Bastille" especially so. 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, 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."--Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Paris is one of my favorite cities in all the world; Black's books are a fine way to revisit it."--"New Orleans Times-Picayune"
"Black's fourth is her best yet, with complex, appealing characters, a crisp, well-paced mystery, and a setting like no other."--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
AimEe Leduc is all dressed up in her new Chinese silk jacket, supposedly an "exclusive," for dinner with a difficult client at an elegant restaurant in the Bastille district. She is chagrined to see that the woman seated at the very next table is wearing an identical jacket. When the woman leaves her cell phone on the table, AimEe follows her to return it and is attacked in the shadowy Passage Boule Blanche. When she regains consciousness, AimEe finds that she is blind. Nevertheless, she is told she is lucky; the woman she was following was found in the next passage, murdered.
AimEe is determined to identify her attacker. Was he actually a serial killer targeting showy blondes as the police insist? Was he really after the other woman? Or was AimEe his intended victim?
