Praise for Murder in Belleville

“If you’ve always wanted to visit Paris, skip the airfare and read Cara Black’s Murder in Belleville instead. It’s so authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee.”
—Val McDermid

“While Aimée grounds the novel with her strong, savy personality, in Murder in Belleville the real star of the show is Cara Black’s depiction of contemporary Paris with its racial tensions and seedly underworld. The sights, sounds and smells of the city are captured in exquisite detail.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Cara Black and Aimée Leduc are to Paris what Sara Paretsky and V.I. Warshawski are to Chicago . . . She makes Paris come alive as no one has since Georges Simenon.”
—Stuart M. Kaminsky

“Intriguing . . . The suspense begins immediately . . . Some of Black’s strongest writing is in her descriptions of Belleville’s heady atmosphere.”
Publishers Weekly

“Blurring the edge between mystery and thriller, Black’s second makes April in Paris more spine-tingling but more beautiful than ever.
—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the New York Times bestselling Aimée Leduc series

“Transcendently, seductively, irresistibly French.”
—Alan Furst

“Wry, complex, sophisticated, intensely Parisian . . . One of the very best heroines in crime fiction today.”
—Lee Child

“As always, with airfares so high, Black offers armchair travelers a whirlwind trip through the City of Light.”
—USA Today
“Paris, as always, sparkles in all its gargoyled, dusty, cobblestoned glory.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“Forever young, forever stylish, forever in love with Paris—forever Aimée.”
—New York Times Book Review 
“Leduc has a network of loyal friends to aid in her escapades. Pity the knife-wielding villain who offends that infallible sense of style.”
The Wall Street Journal
“A tightly spun web worthy of a classic spy thriller . . . Leduc’s City of Light is a stylish, dangerous place.”
—The Washington Post
“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
“Chic and utterly charming.”
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Addictive . . . Leduc is always a reliable and charming guide to the city’s lesser-known corners.”
Seattle Times
