Murder at la Villette

Cara Black
Book - 2024

"Parisian private investigator Aimée Leduc has been framed for the murder of her daughter's father-now she's on the lam, and must find the real killer to clear her name in this thrilling 21st installment of Cara Black's New York Times bestselling mystery series. Aimée Leduc's ex Melac, her daughter's father, has been hounding her for weeks, pressuring her to move little Chloe to Brittany, threatening to take her to court for custody-all but stalking her. Harassed and fed up, Aimée has stopped taking his calls. That's why she doesn't know as she's leaving a client's office late one night that Melac is waiting for her by the Bassin de la Villette-where an assailant attacks him just in time for Aimee to find his still-bleeding body in the canal. Interrupted, the killer knocks Aimée unconscious and plants the bloody knife in her hands for the police to find. Now Aimée is in police custody, debilitated by her concussion, with overwhelming evidence working against her. She has to figure out who set Melac up-but he was a man with many pasts, a former homicide investigator and the target of criminal grudges. Cut off from her typical network and forced to operate under multiple layers of cover, Aimée must go deep into the underbelly of Paris's 19th arrondissement, where she rubs shoulders with biker gangs, paranoid journalists, grieving parents, and frustratingly tight-lipped ex-cops on her hunt for truth and justice"--
