"New York Times Bestseller" Cara Black's fashionable Parisian P.I. Aimee Leduc has a new look for her 14th adventure: five months pregnant.
June, 1998: Paris's sticky summer heat is even more oppressive than usual as rowdy French football fans riot in anticipation of the World Cup. Private investigator Aimee Leduc has been trying to slow down her hectic lifestyle--she's five months pregnant and has the baby's well-being to think about now. But then disaster strikes close to home. A serial rapist has been terrorizing Paris's Pigalle neighborhood, following teenage girls home and attacking them in their own houses. Zazie, the 13-year-old daughter of the proprietor of Aimee's favorite cafe, has disappeared. The police aren't mobilizing quickly enough, and when Zazie's desperate parents approach Aimee for help, she knows she couldn't say no even if she wanted to.
