Publisher's Summary

Paris is burning - and only Private's Jack Morgan can put out the fire.
When Jack Morgan stops by Private's Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip filled with fine food and sightseeing. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after a call from his client, Sherman Wilkerson, asking Jack to track down his young granddaughter, who is on the run from a brutal drug dealer.
Before Jack can locate her, several members of France's cultural elite are found dead - murdered in stunning, symbolic fashion. The only link between the crimes is a mysterious graffiti tag. As religious and ethnic tensions simmer in the City of Lights, only Jack and his Private team can connect the dots before the smoldering powder keg explodes.

Could've been an entertaining few hours...

Any additional comments?

I didn't purchase this book thinking it was fine literature. I bought this book for the same reason I sometimes hangout in drugstores and buy cheap makeup...its a mindless way to spend time and enjoy myself. I would say 'mission accomplished' except that I had to force myself to finish this, while trying not to gag over the performance!

Unlike other reviewers, I actually loved Mark Sullivan's French accents! And not a little because when he spoke in female voices, or foreign voices he spoke like a normal human being. When the performance called for an english speaking male or ESPECIALLY when it turned to describing the thoughts of Major Sauvage...Mr. Sullivan turned on this nauseating, cheesy 'movie trailer' voice! You know the one...breathy, raspy growl stretched out at the end of every sentence. At first I thought, "They're kidding, right? Maybe this is going to turn out to be a soap opera on the television?" No, not kidding.
And there were moments where some added, cheesy background music just made it SO difficult to enjoy.
I almost returned it several times.
