Cara Black: book signing & discussion

Thursday, June 21, 2018, 1:30 AM

Murder by the Book presents Cara Black.  Cara Black will sign her Aimee Leduc prequel, Murder On The Left Bank (Soho; $27.95).
The eighteenth mystery in the New York Times bestselling Parisian detective series...
A dying man drags his oxygen machine into the office of ric Besson, a lawyer in Paris’s 13th arrondissement. The old man, an accountant, is carrying a dilapidated notebook full of meticulous investment records.
For decades, he has been helping a cadre of dirty cops launder stolen money. The notebook contains his full confession–he’s waited 50 years to make it, and now it can’t wait another day.
He is adamant that Besson get the notebook into the hands of La Proc, Paris’s chief prosecuting attorney, so the corruption can finally be brought to light.
But en route to La Proc, Besson’s courier–his assistant and nephew–is murdered, and the notebook disappears.
Grief-stricken ric Besson tries to hire private investigator Aim e Leduc to find the notebook, but she is reluctant to get involved.
Her father was a cop and was murdered by the same dirty syndicate the notebook implicates. She’s not sure which she’s more afraid of, the dangerous men who would kill for the notebook or the idea that her father’s name might be among the dirty cops listed within it.
Ultimately that’s the reason she must take the case, which leads her across the Left Bank, from the Cambodian enclave of Khmer Rouge refugees to the ancient royal tapestry factories to the modern art galleries.
Cara Black is the author of the popular Aimee Leduc mystery series. She is a San Francisco Library Laureate and a member of the Paris Societe Historique in the Marais.
Her book Murder in the Sentier was nominated for an Anthony Award for Best Novel, and Murder in the Latin Quarter was a finalist for the Best Novel Award from the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association.
She lives in San Francisco with her husband and their son.
