Cara Black at the American Library in Paris

Murder at the Lanterne Rouge: An Aimee Leduc Investigation (Aimee Leduc Investigations)

This Wednesday June 6th, 2012 at 19:30, The American Library in Paris presents-- Evenings with an Author-- featuring Cara Black, award-winning author of the Aimee Leduc P.I. mystery series. Murder at the Lanterne Rouge is Black's twelfth Leduc novel.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, she's been working on the series since 1998. Black will receive the Medaille de la ville de Paris on June 22nd. With titles like Murder in the Marais, Murder in Montmartre, Murder in Passy, Aimee solves crimes in nearly every arrondissement while Cara interviews flics, detectives and cafe owners for research.

Booklist calls her protagonist: "...a delightfully unbuttoned Audrey Hepburn for the twenty-first century..." That one quote in itself makes me want to read every one of them.

Deadly Pleasures says: "...No one does Paris better than Black..."

If I was in Paris this week, you would find me here. If you're in Paris, don't miss it.
Excuse me while I get back to my book!
