Author Cara Black has created a lively, atmospheric mystery series featuring a Parisian female private investigator, Aimee Le Duc. Each murder mystery centers on a different Paris neighborhood, so each story is rich in local charm and Parisian joie de vivre. Narrating this crime novel is challenging, even for an experienced narrator like Meredith Mitchell. There are many characters of both sexes, all ages and temperaments. Adding to the challenge are the French phrases scattered liberally throughout the dialogue. Mitchell’s French pronunciation is convincing, but her use of French accents seems arbitrary. Her portrayal of the pregnant detective is exactly right, and we feel the young woman’s tenacity, tenderness, and vulnerability. This series is rapidly gaining followers.
