|Murder in the Marais |
by Black, Cara
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. posted Apr 25, 2013 at 4:38PM
