    American historian Hannah intends to immerse herself in World War II research in Paris, wary of paying too much attention to the city where a youthful misadventure once left her dejected. But a chance encounter with Tariq - a Moroccan teenager whose visions of the City of Lights as a world of opportunity and rebirth starkly contrast with her own - disrupts her plan. Hannah agrees to take Tariq in as a lodger, forming an unexpected connection with the young man. Yet as Tariq begins to assimilate into the country he risked his life to enter, he realizes that its dark past and current ills are far more complicated than he'd anticipated.

    Random House presents the audiobook edition of Paris Echo by Sebastian Faulks.

    Set in 2006, Paris Echo follows Hannah, a 31-year-old American post-doctoral researcher looking into the lives of women during the German Occupation of Paris in 1940-44, and Tariq, a 19-year-old boy who has run away from his home in Morocco, searching for sex and adventure. Through their culture clash we are taken back into the hidden Paris of the Dark Years, the Algerian War, and the simmering discontents of the banlieue. As the main characters fight to preserve their integrity and sanity, they find their future shaped by the lives of the dead, by the ghosts of the Paris Metro.
