Cara Black’s Paperback of Murder on the Champ De Mars Is Available In March

Cara Black Murder Champ De MarsAt the San Francisco Writers Conference this year, Cara Black sat at a table near the book seller in the Room of the Dons. I talked with her about the locations in Paris where her books take place. Her latest one is on the Champ De Mars and it will be available in paperback on March 8th this year. For the description on Amazon, read the following. To order  click here.

“Paris, April 1999: Aimée Leduc has her work cut out for her—running her detective agency and fighting off sleep deprivation as she tries to be a good single mother to her new bébé. The last thing she has time for now is to take on a personal investigation for a poor manouche (Gypsy) boy. But he insists his dying mother has an important secret she needs to tell Aimée, something to do with Aimée’s father’s unsolved murder a decade ago. How can she say no?

The dying woman’s secret is even more dangerous than her son realized. When Aimée arrives at the hospital, the boy’s mother has disappeared. She was far too sick to leave on her own—she must have been abducted. What does she know that’s so important it’s worth killing for? And will Aimée be able to find her before it’s too late and the medication keeping her alive runs out?”

Lee Child wrote a testimonial for Murder on the Champ de Mars: “Wry, complex, sophisticated, intensely Parisian….One of the very best heroines in crime fiction today.” Child’s books feature Jack Reacher as the main character and Black’s Aimee Leduc is the main character in all her books.

The bookmark Black gave me listed twelve books she’s written. I’ve read four.

I told her about our last trip to Paris where we stayed in an apartment above the Champs-Elysees, about four blocks from the Arc de Triomphe. On the plane flight to Paris, I read her book titled Murder in The Marais.  She plans to return to Paris in spring to explore the area where her next book will be set.

Have you read Cara Black’s books or Lee Child’s?
