Description
Paris, November 1989- Aimee Leduc is going through a rough patch. A freshman at a cutthroat medical college, she is faced with suspension when someone sabotages one of her final projects. She's just discovered that her boyfriend, Florent, is getting engaged to another woman-an aristocrat like himself. And on top of that, Aimee's father has left town on a sudden mysterious business trip, and has asked her to look after the office in his absence-as if she didn't have enough else to do. In spite of (or perhaps because of) these obstacles, Aimee volunteers to take on a case her father doesn't want-one involving a distant relative. Seventy-six-year-old Bruno Peltier has been shot in the back of the head, execution-style, on a quai by the Seine. One of the only scraps of evidence on his body is the number of a young woman at an escort club, and Bruno's daughter Elise refuses to believe that her father had a mistress. Aimee's only task is to follow up on the lead, not to solve the murder, and she thinks it will be a cut-and-dried infidelity case. But she soon finds herself dragged into a revenge scheme that leads back to the ravages of the second World War and a missing treasure trove of stolen Nazi gold.
