Murder in Belleville
In the explosive continuation of the investigative series set in Paris, Aimee Leduc turns from corporate computer security when her friend, a Defense Minister's wife, begs for help. The path leads to Belleville, the working-class neighborhood where Edith Piaf lived, and a car bombing. Tensions run high when Islamic fundamentalists take over a church in a hunger strike to protest immigration laws. It's up to Aimee and her partner, Rene, to find out who's behind the bombing before tragedy strikes again. Murder in Belleville shows us a side of Paris that tourists seldom see.

|display_description||The second Aimée Leduc investigation set in Paris|
When Anaïs de Froissart calls Parisian private investigator Aimée begging for help, Aimée assumes the woman wants to hire her to do surveillance on her philandering politician husband again. Aimée is too busy right now to indulge her. But Anaïs insists Aimée must come, that she is in trouble and scared. Aimée tracks Anaïs down just in time to see a car bomb explode, injuring Anaïs and killing the woman she was with.
Anaïs can't explain what Aimée just witnessed. The dead woman, Anaïs says, is Sylvie Coudray, her cheating husband's long-time mistress, but she has no idea who wanted her dead, and Anaïs officially hires Aimée to investigate. As she digs into Sylvie Coudray's murky past, Aimée finds that the dead woman may not be who Anaïs thought she was. Her Belleville neighborhood, full of North African immigrants, may be hiding clues to Sylvie's identity. As a prominent Algerian rights activist stages a hunger protest against new immigration laws, Aimée begins to wonder whether Sylvie's death was an act of terrorism, and who else may be at risk.
