First Sentences: His fingers hover over the keyboard. Got to get it all down. This: this is the story that's going to make his name.
Setting: Paris, France
My Opinion: An atmospheric murder mystery with some unique characters.
Short and snappy chapters that keep you reading and guessing. The protagonist is Jess who has gone to Paris to visit her brother. The problem is on her arrival he appears to have gone missing. It is Jess’s gutsy behaviour that keeps the storyline moving in this intriguing read.
Recommended for classic mystery fans.
