Praise for Murder in the Bastille

“Cara Black books are good companions, and Murder in the Bastille especially so. Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can’t go, these will do fine. Or, better, go and bring them with you.”
—Alan Furst

“Charming . . . Aimée 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

“Paris is one of my favorite cities in all the world; Black’s books are a fine way to revisit it.”
The New Orleans Times-Picayune

“Black infuses her stories with all the sensory elements—autumn rain, smoking chimney pots, the aroma of roast chestnuts—that make Paris the perfect locale for a murky murder mystery.”
—The Raleigh News & Observer

“Atmosphere triumphs and is matched by a sleek intricate yarn . . . the skillful, elaborate plot reveals a fiendishly elegant solution.”
The Providence Journal

“Black’s fourth is her best yet, with complex, appealing characters, a crisp, well-paced mystery, and a setting like no other.”
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“[The] authentic touches will be as welcome as the fresh butter on our morning croissant.”
Publishers Weekly
