Aimee Leduc, the French-American private eye living in Paris, is back in this 4th installment of the popular series that began with Murder in the Marais. Aimee gets mugged in an alley and is blinded. Was she merely the most recent attempted victim of a serial killer? Or is someone after her personally? She tries to help her sidekick and the police figure it out while coping with her new disability and the attentions of a sexy doctor.
The fourth in the series by Cara Black. In this book Aimee Leduc becomes blinded. I thought Black's descriptions of the world from the perspective of someone newly blinded were realistic and thoughtful. I am reading the whole series.
This is a wonderful and atmospheric mystery; offbeat and quirky. A great look at Paris and its underbelly...
I was about to give up on the Aimee Leduc mystery series because the stories are a bit too modern, too punk, for a senior citizen like me. Then I read Aimee Leduc #4, Murder in the Bastille. Wow! Murder in the Bastille has a riveting plot---but one that doesn't tie up all the loose ends. So now I can't wait to read Aimee Leduc #5.
