Returning to work after a maternity leave, Amy LeDuc becomes too busy to really care for her six-month old daughter. To begin with, she undertakes a surveillance occupying her evenings. Then she becomes involved in a personal investigation involving gypsies in the belief she can discover the murderer of her father 10 years before. And to top it off, she has to fend off her former lover who, with his new wife, is attempting to wrest possession of her baby from her. As in all the novels in the series, this one takes place in one area of Paris, the seventh arrondissnent, home to the Parisian elite, the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides. Such a setting gives the author an opportunity to give the reader a glimpse into the seats of power in the ministries and embassies, the upper crust’s homes and gardens as she pursues her quest to uncover the facts surrounding her father’s death. One criticism: the reader is swamped with too much in the way of couture, lipstick applications and other frilly descriptions which slow down the progress in what is a first-rate mystery. Also the surveillance seems to be an afterthought, just to prove the LeDuc Detective Agency actually exists and is never really developed. That notwithstanding, the novel is recommended.

Loved this latest Paris trip. The baby is a wonderful antidote to the corruption.
