Just as Parisian private investigator Aimée Leduc is about to leave for New York City to pursue a lead on a man who might be her brother, her fellow detective, René Friant, is wounded by a near-fatal gunshot. Aimée is distraught over René’s condition and horrified to be under suspicion for the attack; police have pegged her as the guilty party. At the same time, a large, mysterious sum appears in Leduc Detective’s bank account, and tax authorities descend upon Aimée. It seems someone is impersonating her — someone who wants revenge. But for what?

“If you’ve always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead.”
—Val McDermid
“Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can’t go, these will do fine. Or, better, go and bring them with you.”
—Alan Furst
“[S]uch fun … a delightfully unbuttoned Audrey Hepburn for the twenty-first century.”
—Booklist
“[Aimee’s] two investigations link in a surprising way—there’s a really ripping ending—and make for interestingly different and over­lapping tension. And with Aimée really on the defensive, she’s more appealingly tough yet vulnerable than ever. With its multiple strands, this work has a somewhat different feel from other Aimée Leduc novels. But never fear, it’s still a winner.”
