Today's selection is from Cara Black's Murder in Passy (p. 154):
" Drumming her fingers on the round marble-top table of the cafe overlooking Place Victor Hugo, Aimee watched for Irati. The outdoor rattan cafe chairs gleamed like copper in the mid-afternoon light. Sparse brown-leafed plane trees encircled the spurting fountain. Opposite stood Saint Honore d'Eylau, a narrow toffee-colored stone church. Hemingway married one of his wives here, the story went. She had a clear view of the three streets Irati might use to return to her car.
A traffic light shone green above the PIETONS ATTENTION sign as a rush of pedestrians crossed the zebra crosswalk.
She answered her phone on the first ring.
Some days, I find it's better to get lost in Paris and someone else's fictional drama (and murder and mayhem). I love learning a little about how another author inserts place as character (especially when it's Paris!). And she's got one for just about every arrondissement. Try one. And...see you in Paris.
