Cara Black recommends
The Man Who Didn't Burn (2023)
(Juge Lombard Mystery, book 1)
Ian Moore
"A fast paced, engaging, insightful look behind the expat life in France. Wine, chateaux and murder - what's not to love? I highly recommend."
Redemption (2023)
(Eva 'Lightning Dance' Duran, book 1)
Deborah J Ledford
"Redemption, by Deborah J. Ledford, gets under your skin. Fresh and ferocious Native American deputy Eva 'Lightning Dance' Duran never lets up in her quest woven through the Taos Pueblo land. Atmospheric and awash with color, customs, and ancient ways. I loved this."
Die Around Sundown (2022)
(Henri Lefort Mysteries, book 1)
Mark Pryor
"Visit occupied Paris in Die Around Sundown, a darkly comic mystery with a sharp eyed and sharp mouthed police detective . . . with a French flair into little known facets of history. A tale with twists and heart."
Wild Prey (2022)
(Inspector Lu Fei Mystery, book 2)
Brian Klingborg
"Engrossing and unmissable journey."
The School of Mirrors (2022)
Eva Stachniak
"A riveting epic shining with lush historical detail. . . . Stachniak's story of a young woman's life struggle and journey is set against the Versailles court intrigue and French Revolution. The School of Mirrors illuminates the early feminism of midwives through the guillotine to the New World. You'll never forget this journey."
The Opium Prince (2020)
Jasmine Aimaq
"The Opium Prince is an evocative, overdue tale of Afghanistan, written with searing insight by Jasmine Aimaq. Against the backdrop of 1970s Kabul, Aimaq sets an edgy cat-and-mouse game between a half-Afghan US government official and an opium khan, threaded together by the hard beauty of the country's land and people. I couldn’t put it down."
