Cara Black has written nineteen mysteries featuring private investigator Aimée Leduc. I've read five of them, and even though I've enjoyed the stories and I've loved all the things I've learned about Paris, I have to be honest and say that I've never really warmed to Aimée. That's probably why I was so glad to hear that Black has written a standalone historical thriller. If I like everything about her writing except her main character, the odds are in my favor when I get my hands on a copy of Three Hours in Paris, don't you think?
Let me tell you more about the book!
|Available April 7, 2020!|
"In June of 1940, when Paris fell to the Nazis, Hitler spent a total of three hours in the City of Light—abruptly leaving, never to return. To this day, no one knows why.
The New York Times bestselling author of the Aimée Leduc investigations reimagines history in her masterful, pulse-pounding spy thriller, Three Hours in Paris.
Kate Rees, a young American markswoman, has been recruited by British intelligence to drop into Paris with a dangerous assignment: assassinate the Führer. Wrecked by grief after a Luftwaffe bombing killed her husband and infant daughter, she is armed with a rifle, a vendetta, and a fierce resolve. But other than rushed and rudimentary instruction, she has no formal spy training. Thrust into the red-hot center of the war, a country girl from rural Oregon finds herself holding the fate of the world in her hands. When Kate misses her mark and the plan unravels, Kate is on the run for her life—all the time wrestling with the suspicion that the whole operation was a set-up.
Cara Black, a doyenne of the Parisian crime novel, is at her best as she brings Occupation-era France to vivid life in this gripping story about one young woman with the temerity—and drive—to take on Hitler himself."
Three Hours in Paris sounds like the best kind of pageturner. What say you? Will this book be going on your wishlist? Inquiring minds would love to know.
Now... hurry up, April!
