Booklist Reviews 2007 October #2

A surprise visit from former lover Yves goes horribly wrong in Black's seventh Aimée Leduc novel. In a few short hours, computer-security analyst Aimée goes from accepting Yves' marriage proposal to identifying his body in the Paris morgue. Black's series uses a similar setup in every adventure—a murder in which Aimée has a personal stake gets in the way of her less exciting but more lucrative job—and the narratives all follow in the same general direction: the seemingly overmatched Aimée proves up to the challenge. The formula may be starting to fray, but the chief attraction of this popular series has always been the way Black uses her Paris setting: not just to prettify the surroundings but as an essential element of the stories, most of which concern one of the city's many immigrant groups. This time Aimée lands in the middle of rival Turks and Kurds. Yes, we're tiring a bit of the sameness with which Aimée crashes breathlessly around the streets of Paris, but we're as entranced as ever by the vivid evocation of those streets and the history they hold.

In Paris working as a nanny, devout Shi'a Nadira Abouz is given an important assignment by her Iranian handler: assassinate Kurdish feminist Jalenka Malat for the glory of Allah. Meanwhile, edgy, stylishly outr Aime Leduc (last seen sleuthing her way through Murder on the Ile Saint-Louis ) has a little assignment of her own, for on-again, off-again boyfriend Yves has suddenly reappeared and proposed marriage. And then Yves is dead, leaving Aime to hunt for his chador-clad killer. Her investigation leads her straight into the heart of the Kurdish question and Nadira's murderous plan because world-class reporter Yves was deeply involved in a story about the ongoing Kurdish bid for independence and dam construction in Turkey on reclaimed Kurdish territory. Does Aime triumph? Of course, but first she'll have her usual brawl with the Prfecture de police. Once again, Black has crafted a superb tale informed by current political tensions, showing how they play out in French society while suggesting larger implications. The plot itself is swift and assured, the language elegantly gritty, the characterization deft, and the end a truly satisfying surprise. Highly recommended for all mystery collections.

In Black's riveting eighth Aime Leduc mystery (after 2007's Murder on the Ile Saint-Louis ), Aime reconnects in the summer of 1995 with a former boyfriend, investigative journalist Yves Robert, while Paris still reels from the St.-Michel Metro bombings. But after a romantic evening when Yves even proposes marriage, Aime is shocked to be called in to identify Yves's body at the morgue. Believing he was working undercover, Aime ignores the sanitized police report and enlists her partner and best friend, Ren Friant, to help solve Yves's murder. Her investigation ignites a chain reaction that reveals assassination plots, informers and secret contracts surrounding the strained relationship of a militant Turkish group and the Kurdish Labor Party, all leading back to Yves. Aime Leduc, smart, spirited and sassy, takes the reader on an action-packed ride fueled by the hidden secrets of her beloved Paris. (Mar.)
