Parisian private investigator Aimee Leduc is operating the business her grandfather started. On her office wall is a commendation from the Louvre that the founder of the agency received decades ago for recovering a stolen Degas. Now it is Aimee's turn to recover a priceless piece of art that has gone missing.

Hired to protect a rare and, until this point, unknown portrait of Lenin by Modigliani, Aimee is unable to fulfill the assignment because the person who owns the work of art is killed and the painting disappears.

With one death following closely on the heels of another, it becomes all too obvious that a number of people are willing to do whatever it takes to retrieve the priceless portrait. In fact, the young sleuth is nearly a victim herself as she tries to locate the Modigliani.

An added twist to this action packed mystery is the involvement Aimee's own mother has in the theft. On Interpol's most wanted list for two decades, the woman left her daughter and her husband behind when Aimee was just a child. Now, after all these years, the two women may meet again under very curious circumstances.

San Francisco writer Cara Black knows how to ratchet up the tension as her story heads down the home stretch. Along with creating a riveting thriller, Black has created a rich, atmospheric setting with enough French history to make this a series that delights those who have traveled to Paris and enjoyed the city's many cultural delights.
