Murder in the Marais, Cara Black

By | September 27, 2014

Murder in the Marais by Cara Black is the first book in the Aimée Leduc mystery series. Cara Black has set the Aimée Leduc mysteries in Paris France. Aimée Leduc is a young private investigator. She owns Leduc Detective that she inherited from her father. Why was her father  killed after he was no longer with the Paris police. I’m not telling, read the book, one of those hard to put down mysteries. Leduc Investigations specializes in computer crime against businesses; however, Aimée is constantly getting involved in problems that have nothing to do with computer crime. Leduc Investigations always seems never to have enough money to pay the bills because she is to busy with all these problems that have nothing to do with computer crime which is their bread and butter.
The publishers even include a map at the beginning of the book to help the reader from getting lost as the mystery unfolds. However I have found that online maps helped me more than the the one that is in the book. I like books like the Aimée Leduc mysteries where the streets, geography and major buildings are real, not made up fiction.

I own this book.

René is also constantly trying to keep Aimée out of trouble and get here to concentrate on their corporate clients, so that the tax man and others can be paid. The best that I can say about this Cara Black and her Aimée Leduc mystery series is that is hard book to put down until you are finished reading the whole book. So, don’t read it before going to bed or you will be up all night.
