A novel by

 


Praise for Cara Black's Aim&#233;e Leduc series:

"Charming. . . . Aim&#233;e is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Leduc has a thorough grasp of the practicalities of investigation, plus a penchant for undercover work that will have readers on pins and needles."-San Francisco Chronicle

"Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us."-Chicago Tribune

Aim&#233;e Leduc, private investigator specializing in computer security, has been introduced to the Cao Dai temple in Paris by her partner Ren&#233; Friant. He urges her to learn to meditate: she could use a more healthful approach to life. The Vietnamese nun Linh has been helping Aim&#233;e to attain her goal, so when she asks Aim&#233;e for a favor-to go to the Clichy quartier to exchange an envelope for a package-Ren&#233; prompts Aim&#233;e to agree. But the intended recipient, Thad&#233;e Baret, is shot and dies in Aim&#233;e's arms before the transaction can be completed, leaving Aim&#233;e with a wounded arm, a check for 50,000 francs, and a trove of ancient jade artifacts.

Whoever killed Baret wants the jade. The RG-the French secret service; a group of veterans of the war in Indochina and some wealthy ex-colonials and international corporations seeking oil rights are all implicated. And the nun, Linh, has disappeared.

Since the incident in which she was temporarily blinded (Murder in the Bastille), Aim&#233;e has promised to avoid danger. But somehow, it continues to seek her out.
