The 12th book in the award-winning Parisian crime series featuring P.I. Aimee Leduc is a complete winner. Each book is set in a different district of Paris, highlighting the local sights and sounds. In this Parisian Chinatown-set adventure, no one is who they seem. Aimee is stylish, smart and trained to fight her way through trouble. She rides through Paris on her pink Vespa, living life on her terms and enjoying almost every minute. Great, fun books.

Aimee’s business partner and friend Rene is in love, but Aimee wishes he weren’t moving so quickly in the relationship. When Rene asks Aimee to meet his fiancée at a restaurant with her parents, she reluctantly goes. During dinner the girl takes a call outside, promising to be right back, but doesn’t return. A body is found outside the door where she lives and Aimee suspects even more that Rene is in trouble. Sweatshops, illegal immigrants, the secret service and a murderer on the loose mean constant danger — but Aimee can’t back down. Rene needs her. (SOHO, Mar., 320 pp., $25.00)
