We all judge books by their covers, but in this case I’m advising you not to do that! The cover design is one my few criticisms of this book and of course this is merely my personal opinion, but I really don’t think it does the book justice at all.

If you've ever walked in London or Paris, you will love this book, but if you haven't, you will still love this book because it will take you there.

This book is fantastic!!
The author has artfully crafted the mystery to grab you as you 'enter' the story. Each turn of the page the draws the reader in as the mystery builds and the characters become more fascinating.

Author of 16 Paris Mysteries: "There's something about being at 35,000 feet that sets people free to share the most intimate details of their lives. As a crew member on-board commercial airlines, and then, private jets, I became the grateful beneficiary of this free education, and embraced the chance to study human behavior in very close quarters. As a writer, given the opportunity to visit 35 cou ...more
