 Murder in the Rue de Paradis

by Cara Black

"In Paris working as a nanny, devout Shi'a Nadira Abouz is given an important assignment by her Iranian handler: assassinate Kurdish feminist Jalenka Malat for the glory of Allah. Meanwhile, edgy, stylishly outre Aimee Leduc has a little assignment of her own, for on-again, off-again boyfriend Yves has suddenly reappeared and proposed marriage. Once again, Black has crafted a superb tale informed by current political tensions, showing how they play out in French society while suggesting larger implications. " -- Library Journal
