Read from March 16 to 17, 2012

In typical Aimee Leduc fashion, what should be a celebration as her partner, Renee, hosts a birthday celebration for his new love, turns into a disappearance, a murder and intrigue after intrigue. It all starts with the body of a young scientist/engineer found shrink-wrapped on the street. Soon Aimee is asked to investigate his death by his aunt, a former member of the French Resistance. It is soon obvious that Renee's new love is not what she seems including her name and the people she introduces as her parents. Before she knows it, Aimee is discovering links to the Templars, an old formula with new applications and the fact that her mother is very much alive..... This was really exciting and a fun read. I've been to Paris 5 or 6 times although not since the 70's. I can picture the winding streets though. I ache to return, and Ms. Black's books only increase that desire!
