THE PARIS AFFAIR
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction, France, Mystery
For those hooked on Grant’s mystery series featuring Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch, The Paris Affair is a treat. Complex, and perhaps a bit convoluted, with its blending of several mysteries, murders and politics, the novel is nonetheless gripping. The multilayered plot allows readers to explore several marriages and relationships, and by the time the stunning climax is reached readers will be holding their breath and eagerly anticipating Grant’s next story.
After the battles are over and Napoleon ousted, Paris is a maelstrom seething with tensions. Into the fray come British attaché and secret agent Malcolm Rannoch and his wife, and fellow spy, Suzanne. When a one-time informant is murdered after their meeting, Malcolm and Suzanne are pulled into a hunt for the killer that winds back into Malcolm’s past. Most surprising is the possible connection to Malcolm’s half-sister, Princess Tatiana Kirsanova, who may have given birth to a secret child, a girl whose father is a powerful man. Malcolm is intent upon finding the child and solving the murder, but this case could be the one that tests everything they know about their past, present and future.
