In some ways more a historical thriller than an amateur sleuth, MURDER ON THE EIFFEL TOWER is in either case a terrific tale

In 1889 while the Buffalo Bill show parades through the streets of Paris as part of World Exposition extravaganza, a rag and bone man dies from a bee sting. Soon afterward at the top of the new Eiffel Tower, Parisian bookstore owner and photographer Victor Legris watches as a woman, Eugenie Patinot, apparently dies from a bee sting.

Victor meets with his business partner Kenji Mori, his friend reporter Marius Bonnet and Russian illustrator Tasha Kherson. With a common interest to spark them, Victor and Tasha become an entry. When a third "bee sting" death occurs near the Colonial Palace, Victor investigates hoping he can write an article for Le Passe-partout.

In some ways more a historical thriller than an amateur sleuth, MURDER ON THE EIFFEL TOWER is in either case a terrific tale. Readers will be caught up with Victor's energy as he escorts the audience around Paris at an exciting time for the city. The whodunit is cleverly devised to provide fans with a strong mystery, but the entertaining story line belongs to the hero and his supporting cast especially late nineteenth century Paris at a time when technology is booming.

GREAT READ FOR LOVERS OF PARIS

I bought this book based on the title and cover. I love France and especially Paris. When leaving on a recent trip to Paris, I selected this book for the plane. I figured it would be a great way to get in the Francophile mood. I have always loved mysteries and history. This book easily combines the two, carefully weaving the 1889 Exposition in Paris with a series of mysterious deaths. The characters are interesting and believable; the descriptions were excellent, making it easy to envision the people and places, at that time. The story is light, sometimes funny, sometimes romantic and also informative. I searched Paris for the 2nd book in the series, but was only able to find it in French! Ordering it now on bn.
