Praise for Three Hours in Paris

“I couldn’t stop reading Cara Black’s newest! A young American markswoman named Kate Reese is sent to Paris to assassinate Hitler—what could possibly go wrong? Everything, as it turns out, prompting an intense cat-and-mouse chase through the blacked-out City of Light. Nothing is as it seems, certainly not for Kate, as she tries to escape and made it back to Britain with plans of the secret of the Nazi invasion. Black keeps you guessing—and biting your nails—up to the very last page.”
—Susan Elia MacNeal, author of the New York Times-bestselling Maggie Hope series

“There is a serious problem with Cara Black’s new stand-alone novel—you won’t be able to sleep once you start reading it! A beautifully written fast-paced thriller with a depth of knowledge about tough American mamas and WWII Paris. Stunning.”
—Liz Newstat, Chevalier’s Books (Los Angeles, CA)

“Based on nothing more than the title, Three Hours in Paris was not the book I expected! In part, that’s because this is a real departure for Cara Black. This is not Aimée Leduc’s France. The story is an exquisitely tense cat-and-mouse chase between and American operative and a Nazi officer in the dark days of WWII. Vive la difference! This one is a must-read!”
—Susan Tunis, Bookshop West Portal (San Francisco, CA)

“Few know the streets of Paris as well as Cara Black, and no one is as good at bringing a suspenseful thriller to life in the twists and turns of their back alleys and memorable sites. With smart complex characters, fascinating historical details, and a propulsive story that doesn’t disappoint Three Hours in Paris is a literary thrill ride that shouldn’t be missed.” 
—Luisa Smith, Book Passage (Bay Area, CA)

Praise for Cara Black

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

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

“So authentic you can practically smell the fresh baguettes and coffee.”
—Val McDermid
“The real joy of Murder on the Left Bank is in its familiar cast and its thoughtful, witty, occasionally melancholy evocation of Paris, the city where we keep so many of our most beautiful ideas about what life might mean.” 
USA Today

“Marvelous . . . Murder on the Left Bank boasts all of Black’s trademark charms, including deft plotting, sharp dialog and colorful sights and sounds.”
—Chicago Tribune 
“Leduc is a refreshing and entertaining guide to Parisian neighborhoods and cultures, especially those that well-established tourist routes typically pass by. Let’s hope she never runs out of districts to scoot around in.”
—The Seattle Times
“[Black] draws the reader into the intricacies of Paris while driving the mystery forward to make it an ultimate page-turner.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle
“Black creates rich, plausible characters, giving them individuality and depth.”
San Francisco Gate
