Murder Most French

If James Bond had been born female and French, he might be as daring and charming as Aimée Leduc, the heroine of Cara Black’s mystery series set in various Paris neighborhoods. Aimée is a kickass private investigator who manages to be every bit as valiant as James ever was. What’s more, she does it without the gadgets and while wearing (very) high heels. Murder in the Marais kept me engaged with its tightly plotted suspense, colorful setting and likeable heroine. I read it at the beach, and it is a perfect beach book, but it’s also good enough to read anywhere. I’m not going to rehash the plot beyond saying that the villains deserved everything they got. You should read it for yourself. I’m off to Amazon to load another Aimée Leduc mystery on my Kindle.
