  • Murder in the marais

    I f0und the writing to contain too many historical references to France that I did not understand.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Blah

    Bought it because I liked other books by this publisher. Didn't enjoy this one, though. Too over-the-top, silly, unbelievable, etc. But it's a long-running series, so maybe I'm alone in my opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Cool start to the series

    Murder in the Marais is the first Aimee Leduc mystery by Cara Black. It’s filled with the scares of modern day terrorism, the horrors of history, and the sights, smells and sounds of a Paris suburb, specifically of the Marais. There, Jewish families were once betrayed, children starved, and Nazis strode. But now, new white supremacists carry a half-blind torch for the past, and an old woman dies a gruesome death with her secrets undisclosed. Aimee Leduc is a fascinating character in her own right, with her mother’s disappearance and her father’s death offering equal depth to her skills. A wealth of disguises, smooth physical prowess, a talent for asking the right, or seriously wrong questions, and enviable computer skills, all help her with the case. Meanwhile her partner Rene surely hides many mysteries of his own. Together, the intrepid duo navigate taxes owed, dangerous allies, awkward politics, and unexpected deaths. Bullets pepper the Paris streets. The European Union advances its cause. And history tries to repeat itself. It’s heady stuff, convincingly told, with detailed facts nicely hidden in evocative description, and disparate viewpoints that gradually gel into complex threads of revelation. And it’s great fun. I’m eager to read more. Disclosure: It was a Christmas present and I offer my honest review.

  • Cara Black keeps the reader in suspense right to the very end. A thoroughly enjoyable read giving the reader an idea of life under the Nazi occupation of Paris and glimpses of modern day Paris.

  • Just Okay

    When Aimee Leduc takes a decoded picture to a client in the Jewish quarter of Paris, she finds the woman dead and things quickly unravel from there. Honestly, I found the book too busy, which left not enough time to wrap everything up in the end.

    Thanks for your feedback!
