Murder below Montparnasse by Cara Black

Murder Below MontparnasseMurder Below Montparnasse by Cara Black
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A reasonable read, French detective Aimee Leduc chasing artwork getting involved with murder. For me the format on my ebook version was off making it a little more difficult to read. The plot however was telegraphed very early on and I kept going hoping there would be a twist. Some sideline stories with no connection to the main story appeared to be there as a filler, omitted it would have made no material difference.

The author whose books are set in Paris ( as per the title) seemed to be trying to give a French flavour by quoting the character in French language but only for isolated words ( "alors", "non" ), this was totally unnecessary as you know it is France but most of all it was irritating. If you could put that aside then it was okay.

This is my first Cara Black story but although I would read her again, it would not be at the top of my list.
