Publisher's summary

A long-lost Modigliani portrait, a grieving brother’s blood vendetta, a Soviet secret that's been buried for 80 years - Parisian private investigator Aimée Leduc's current case is her most exciting one yet.

When Aimée’s long-term partner and best friend Rene leaves their detective agency for a new job in Silicon Valley, Aimée knows she can handle the extra workload. At least, that what she tells herself...repeatedly.

But all bets are off when Yuri Volodya, a mysterious old Russian man, hires Aimée to protect a painting. By the time she gets to his Montparnasse atelier, the precious painting has already been stolen, leaving Aimée smelling a rat. The next day, Yuri is found tortured to death in his kitchen. To top it all off, it looks like Aimée isn’t the only one looking for the painting. Some very dangerous people are threatening her and her coworkers, and witnesses are dropping like flies. Now Aimée has to find the painting, stop her attackers, and figure out what her long-missing mother, who is on Interpol's most wanted list, has to do with all this - fingers crossed she wasn't Yuri's murderer, despite clues pointing in that direction.

Obviously, Rene doesn't need to worry. Aimée has things under control.

Critic reviews

"[Has] a lengthy, well-developed subplot. Allusions to Modigliani, Picasso, Cocteau, Man Ray, and Duchamp help evoke 1920s Paris." (Publishers Weekly)

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I could not finish it. The narration was trite, full of voices so false sounding that they belonged in characters in a Disney cartoon.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
