Praise for Murder on the Left Bank

"Even after 17 books, Ms. Black has intriguing corners of Paris to reveal--from an enclave of ateliers once home to the likes of Gauguin and Rodin to a crime-ridden neighborhood where 'no one wanted to be witnessed witnessing.'"
--Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"One of [Black's] strongest mysteries . . . But the real joy of Murder on the Left Bank is in its familiar cast and its thoughtful, witty, occasionally melancholy evocation of Paris, the city where we keep so many of our most beautiful ideas about what life might mean."
--Charles Finch, USA Today

"Cara Black's Aimée Leduc is a gem: a stylish, brave private detective (and new mom) who zips around Paris on a scooter . . . Black treats us to another of her beguiling tours of some of Paris' little-known corners."
--Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

"Marvelous . . . Murder on the Left Bank boasts all of Black's trademark charms, including deft plotting, sharp dialog and colorful sights and sounds."
--Chicago Tribune

"Since 1998's Murder in the Marais, I have looked forward to each new installment of Cara Black's series featuring Paris-based private investigator Aimée Leduc. I've read them all, and there isn't a clinker in the lot."
--Bruce Tierney, BookPage

"The atmospheric stories are so well-written that they make the reader believe they are in Paris."
--Deadly Pleasures Magazine

"Cara Black takes the classic ingredients of the genre and puts a new Gallic spin on them. The finest PI series now being written."
--Mick Herron, author of This Is What Happened and the Slough House series

"Always entertaining . . . This well-crafted mystery is set on Paris's Left Bank, though not the chic environs of the fifth through seventh arrondissements; one of Black's strengths is showing us the grittier, everyday Paris."
--Library Journal

"Gratifyingly full of local Parisian color."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Particularly poignant."

"A quintessential author of crime fiction set in Paris . . . Not to be missed for readers of exacting heroines, and the crooked villains hiding along Paris' picturesque boulevards."
--Elle Marr, Criminal Element

"A thrilling adventure, filled with colorful characters that will keep you turning the pages until the exciting finale."
--Fresh Fiction

"Black's plotting is intense and acutely paced, with twists in each chapter and a smooth and powerful narrative that sweeps through the book."
--Kingdom Books

Praise for Murder in Saint-Germain

A Los Angeles Times National Bestseller
A BBC Best Summer Read of 2017

"The abiding pleasure of this series is the chance to ride with a cabdriver who wants to discuss Sartre or just tearing around Paris on Aimée's pink Vespa, making stops at the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Île Saint-Louis, where Aimée has an apartment. Lucky girl."
--The New York Times Book Review

"An atmospheric thriller with a savvy take on international arms dealing."
--BBC's Between the Lines

"The pace is, as ever, lickety-split, the sleuthing complex and the small pauses to savour Saint-Germain's glories delightfully educational."
--The Toronto Star

"Black's detective is hitting her post-pregnancy stride, bringing up bébé while battling the bad guys with the best of them."
--Kirkus Reviews
