Murder below Montparnasse (The Aimée Leduc Series) (Digital Audiobook)
Publication Date: March 4, 2013
A long-lost Modigliani portrait, a grieving brother's blood vendetta, a Soviet secret that's been buried for eighty years—Parisian private investigator Aim├®e Leduc's current case is her most exciting one yet.
When Aim├®e's long-term partner and best friend Rene leaves their detective agency for a new job in Silicon Valley, Aim├®e knows she can handle the extra workload. At least, that what she tells herself … repeatedly.
But all bets are off when Yuri Volodya, a mysterious old Russian man, hires Aim├®e to protect a painting. By the time she gets to his Montparnasse atelier, the precious painting has already been stolen, leaving Aim├®e smelling a rat. The next day, Yuri is found tortured to death in his kitchen. To top it all off, it looks like Aim├®e isn't the only one looking for the painting. Some very dangerous people are threatening her and her coworkers, and witnesses are dropping like flies. Now Aim├®e has to find the painting, stop her attackers, and figure out what her long-missing mother, who is on Interpol's most wanted list, has to do with all this—fingers crossed she wasn't Yuri's murderer, despite clues pointing in that direction.
Obviously, Rene doesn't need to worry. Aim├®e has things under control.
