Publisher's Summary

In desperation she wrote, "Meet me in Paris." He would have said, "Yes." But, he never received her letter. Who did? Les grandes vacances, the six-week summer exodus, is about to begin, taking Paris sleuth Louie Bertrand to sunny beaches while leaving his partner Mrs. Duchesney alone in Paris to investigate not one, but four mysteries! The stamp market provides a perfect setting for a shadowy figure from Moscow whose real interest in Paris may not be stamps. The closed case of the dead diplomat and his dubious widow refuses to stay "closed" when evidence suggests the Egyptian statue is not the only priceless item missing from their apartment. In Deauville, France, Louie searches for two married sisters traveling sans husbands, while Mrs. Duchesney in Paris receives a coded invitation to rendezvous with a dead poet. As if that weren't enough intrigue, both Paris sleuths will be forced to investigate one of their oldest friends when an unauthorized biography reveals his hidden past and secrets taken to the grave. It's another busy summer of Paris Mysteries. Pack your bags! Bon Voyage!

Hang on for a wild ride!

Peggy Kopman-Owens outdoes herself in this complex mystery-thriller. Paris sleuth Louie Bertrand and his partner/mentor/employer Mrs. Duchesney begin by dealing with apparently mundane financial and social situations, then, before they can say c'est la vie, become embroiled in a love-and-conflicy situation from World War II, intrigue in the forms of a person from Moscow, a Parisian widow, a coded note sent to Mrs. Duchesney, and, overall, enough character ambivalence and multiple revelations to sustain the interest of the most sophisticated of mystery and history fans.

Evie Irwin's narration adds immeasurably to augment the value of the audiobook, as vocally she weaves the emotions of the characters. The book is thoroughly enjoyable, and some of its five-star credit definitely belongs to Evie!


Five stars.
