Murder in the Marais by Cara Black
Aimee Leduc, the half-French, half-American detective in Paris, is approached by a rabbi to decipher a fifty-year-old encrypted photograph and deliver it to an old woman in the Marais, the old Jewish quarter. When she does so, she finds a corpse on whose forehead, a swastika has been carved.
With the help of her partner, a small people with extraordinary computer skills, she sets out to solve this horrendous crime and finds herself in the middle of a dangerous game of current politics and old war crimes.
Again, like this title that I last read, Murder in the Marais was also recommended to me. I wasn't really that keen to start on it. The cover of a rather large, gloomy and morbid building didn't encourage me at all. The only reason I read it was because I appreciate the recommendation.
So, to read or not to read, it's up to you if you come across this title.
