Just as Parisian private investigator Aimee Leduc is about to leave for New York City to pursue a lead on a man who might be her brother, her fellow detective, Rene Friant, is wounded by a near-fatal gunshot. Aimee is distraught over Rene's condition and horrified to be under suspicion for the attack; police have pegged her as the guilty party. At the same time, a large, mysterious sum appears in Leduc Detective's bank account, and tax authorities descend upon Aimee. It seems someone is impersonating her someone who wants revenge. But for what?

About the Author
Praise For Murder in the Palais Royal…
“[S]uch fun … a delightfully unbuttoned Audrey Hepburn for the twenty-first century.”—Booklist
“[Aimee’s] two investigations link in a surprising way—there’s a really ripping ending—and make for interestingly different and overlapping tension. And with Aimée really on the defensive, she’s more appealingly tough yet vulnerable than ever. With its multiple strands, this work has a somewhat different feel from other Aimée Leduc novels. But never fear, it’s still a winner.”—Library Journal
