Someone impersonating Parisian P.I. Aim e Leduc shoots her partner, Ren , and eyewitnesses identify Aim e as the culprit. She must clear herself and find the shooter before she finishes the job

Just as Parisian private investigator Aim e Leduc is about to leave for New York City to pursue a lead on a man who might be her brother, her fellow detective, Ren Friant, is wounded by a near-fatal gunshot. Aim e is distraught over Ren '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 Aim e. It seems someone is impersonating her--someone who wants revenge. But for what?

Praise For Murder in the Palais Royal (Aimee Leduc Investigations)

“[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
