My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jack Morgan is the owner of the international private investigation company who stops to check on things in his Paris office. While there, a long time client calls him to find his granddaughter who is supposed to be in Paris but who is hiding from a dangerous drug dealer. Morgan and the head of Private Paris, Louis Langlois, begin searching and are able to find her, and put her at the same hotel as Morgan. Morgan and Langlois are soon pulled into another case, when a man of some importance is found murdered. La Crime, France’s National Police Force, works with Morgan to have Private work in conjunction with the authorities to capture the group identifying itself as AB-16.
More bodies turn up and the same graffiti tag is left at the scenes. The granddaughter of Morgan’s client is taken from the hotel and they are forced to split their time between the two cases. There is no doubt that current situations in Paris, France, and all of Europe helped shape the narrative. Xenophobia and Islamophobia are rampant through the story.
I really enjoyed the book. It had a lot of twists and turns and was filled with the unexpected.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
