Publisher's Summary

The world knows Aimee Leduc, heroine of 15 mysteries in this New York Times best-selling series, as a tres chic, no-nonsense private investigator - the toughest and most relentless in Paris. Now author Cara Black dips back in time to reveal how Aimee first became a detective....

November 1989: Aimee Leduc is in her first year of college at Paris' preeminent medical school. She lives in a 17th-century apartment that overlooks the Seine with her father, who runs the family detective agency.

But the week the Berlin Wall crumbles, so does Aimee's life as she knows it. First, someone has sabotaged her lab work, putting her at risk of failing out of the program. Then, she finds out her aristo boyfriend is planning to get engaged to another woman. And finally, Aimee's father takes off to Berlin on a mysterious errand. He asks Aimee to help out at the detective agency while he's gone - as if she doesn't already have enough to do. But the case Aimee finds herself investigating - a murder linked to a transport truck of Nazi gold that disappeared in the French countryside during the height of World War II - has gotten under her skin. Her heart may not lie in medicine after all - maybe it's time to think harder about the family business.

    "Predictable"

    I didn't realize when I chose this book that it was a prequel written after the fact to provide back story for a 15 book detective series. My problem was that I found the story so boring and completely predictable that try as I might I couldn't stay awake. Within in 10 minutes of pushing play I was sound asleep. I knew it was time to give up when I started to use the book as a sure fire way to fall asleep quickly. Not a good thing when it comes to audio books. Be sure to listen to the sample first and maybe just skip the prequel and jump right into book one in the series. I wish that was what I had done. Moving on.

    "French Lesson"
    If you could sum up Murder on the Quai in three words, what would they be?

    Pretty Good Story


    What three words best describe Carine Montbertrand’s voice?

    Nice but annoying when referencing any of the many French words. I felt like she was putting way too much accent on each word. Like she was trying to teach French language and French pronunciation. It was too guttural at times and very annoying. It didn't read smooth. Because of this, I would have enjoyed the paper form better, I think.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No it's not really that kind of book.
