Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  

A long-lost Modigliani portrait, a grieving brother's blood vendetta, a Soviet secret that's been buried for 80 years--Parisian private investigator Aim#65533;e Leduc's current case is her most exciting one yet.

The cobbled streets of Montparnasse might have been boho-chic in the 1920s, when artists, writers, and their muses drank absinthe and danced on cafe tables. But to Parisian private investigator Aim#65533;e Leduc, these streets hold darker secrets. When an old Russian man named Yuri hires Aim#65533;e to protect a priceless painting that just might be a Modigliani, she learns how deadly art theft can be. Yuri is found tortured to death in his atelier, and the painting is missing. Every time Aim#65533;e thinks she's found a new witness, the body count rises. What exactly is so special about this painting that so many people are willing to kill--and die--for it?
