Dear Reader,

MURDER IN PASSY, the eleventh in the Aimée Leduc Investigations series set in Paris, takes Aimée to the chic, 16th arrondissement, a gorgeous, village-like wealthy area where the maids wear pearls. It's November 1997, several months after Princes Diana's death, when Xavierre d'Eslay, a haut bourgeois matron of Basque origin and the girlfriend of Aimée's godfather, Morbier, is strangled outside her home in the exclusive Passy neighborhood. Circumstantial evidence makes Morbier the prime suspect— is it a crime of passion? In the course of her investigation to vindicate him, Aimée discovers a web of police corruption, radical Basque Terrorists and a kidnapped Spanish princess. Kirkus Reviews says "The ideal mix of the personal, the political, the puzzling and the Parisian make Aimée's latest a perfect pleasure."
