Publisher's Summary

Tension runs high in this working-class neighborhood as a hunger strike to protest strict immigration laws escalates among the Algerian immigrants. Aimée barely escapes death in a car bombing in this tale of terrorism and greed in the shadows of Paris.

Very political, but still great Cara Black

I love all books by Cara Black. I learn so much more about the nuances of my favorite city in the world, Paris.

Written by an American married to a Frenchman, and someone who learned to live as the French, Black provides us with an "insider's view" of what it is like to be French. I stay in Paris about 2 months a year, and have for many years, but I never fail to learn more about the city and the French from her books.

Aimee LeDuc epitomizes the spirit of the self-reliant Parisian, with some deep wounds and clouded memories. The French have all suffered.

So, as usual, it was a good listen. However, this book gets extremely political, which is a bit less interesting for me. I expect it from Gabriel Alon, but not Aimee LeDuc. I prefer her madcap mysteries. Still a great listen, though!

very entertaining. The story gets more intense.

The story starys oit a little slowly, or at least I thought so. But it develops with several twists and turns. The narration wad also quite strong, with eaach of the characters voices very distinct.
