Praise for "Murder in the Rue de Paradis" and the AimEe Leduc series:
"Once again, Black has crafted a superb tale informed by current political tensions, showing how they play out in French society while suggesting larger implications. The plot itself is swift and assured, the language elegantly gritty, the characterization deft, and the end a truly satisfying surprise."--"Library Journal" (starred review)
"Riveting. . . . AimEe Leduc, smart, spirited and sassy, takes the reader on an action-packed ride fueled by the hidden secrets of her beloved Paris."--"Publishers Weekly"
"Leduc has a thorough grasp of the practicalities of investigation, plus a penchant for undercover work that will have readers on pins and needles."--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us."--"Chicago Tribune"

“The buzz is partly about her heroine’s hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm.”—Houston Chronicle
“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
