    Would you try another book from Charles Todd and/or Samuel Giles?

    I'm not sure how the story is... I suspect a bit dry. The performance was really tough to listen to and prompted me to ask whether I could return/exchange the book after the first 20-30 min. I won't finish it.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King garners widespread acclaim for her suspenseful novels rich with historical detail. Set in the vibrant Paris Jazz Age, The Bones of Paris introduces private investigator Harris Stuyvesant, an American agent who’s been given the plum assignment of locating beautiful young model Philippa Crosby. But when Philippa’s trail ends at the Théâtre du Grand-Guignol in Montmartre, Stuyvesant discovers a world where art meets sexual depravity - and where a savage killer lurks in the shadows.

    B. says: "Brilliant evocation of Paris in 1929"
    "well done"

    Would you listen to The Bones of Paris again? Why?

    Probably not for a long time. It was quite memorable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well written. Ms. King both writes elegantly and invariably delivers a riveting plot.
