November 1989: Aimée Leduc is having a tough first year at Paris’s top medical program. A classmate has sabotaged one of her projects, and she discovers that her aristo boyfriend is getting engaged to another woman. Then the Berlin Wall crumbles, and Aimée’s father departs for Berlin, leaving Aimée to look after the family detective agency. She soon finds herself sucked into a murder case linked to Nazi gold that vanished from the French countryside during World War II. As the investigation gets under her skin, Aimée discovers her heart may not lie in medicine after all—maybe it’s time to think harder about the family business.
