This series of books has many things that appeal greatly to me--the female protagonist and her partner, the Paris setting and neighborhood history, the good writing style. But this book was not my favorite. It felt as if there were too many unlikeable characters--the "mecs", not to mention the "flics"--some of whom were mecs themselves. Mix in all the cafes, abandoned buildings, clubs, offices and homes Aimee visits and you get a fast-paced book. But I found it to be way too much, along with an ending that was anti-climactic (a day after finishing the book, I couldn't remember who had "done it").

A great series overall, especially for Francophiles
