Aime Leduc, a Parisian private investigator, has sworn she would stick to tech investigation - no criminal cases for her. Especially since her father, the late police detective, was killed in the line of duty. But when an old Jewish man approaches Aime with a secret decoding job on behalf of a woman in his synagogue, Aime unwittingly takes on more than she was expecting. When she takes her findings to her client's house in the Marais, Paris's historic Jewish quarter, she finds the old woman strangled, a swastika carved on her forehead. Can Aime solve the crime?

(The first book in the Aimee Leduc series)

She’s young, tough and determined to solve a fifty-year-old crime. Detective Aimee Leduc soon finds herself embroiled in a dangerous game of current politics and old war crimes. Neo-nazi punks, Jewish rabbis and the ancient streets of Paris make for non-stop action in this impressive debut mystery.

Interesting start to a series. Set in contemporary Paris, this story has its roots in the not too distant past. Looking forward to reading more Aimee's adventures.

Fans of mysteries in exotic locals will gravitate to Cara Black's Aimee Leduc Investigations, which begins with Murder in the Marais. The story is character-driven introducing both major and minor characters in great detail, but not always following through. Black weaves a great deal of French words into the story. Readers unfamiliar with the French language may find this distracting and confusing. In many places, the French was hard to decipher out from the context of the sentence or paragraph. Overall, I believe this will be a popular title with mystery readers who like a bit of history and back story.
