Murder in the Bastille

Murder in the Bastille

Author(s): Cara Black

Location(s): Paris

Genre(s): Mystery

Era(s): Modern



Aimee Leduc is all dressed up in her new Chinese silk jacket for dinner at an elegant restaurant in the Bastille district, but is chagrined to see the woman at the very next table wearing an identical jacket. When the woman leaves her mobile phone on the table, Aimee follows her to return it, but is attacked in the shadowy Passage de la Boule Blanche and blinded. The woman she was following is dead. Was her attacker a serial killer targeting showy blondes, as the police insist? Was he really after the other woman? Or was Aimee his intended victim?

Lead Review

This time Cara Black tackles the Bastille district and certainly brings it to wonderful life. There are some issues with editing in the copy I had.
