Another entertaining burst of rushing energy with Aimee Leduc, this time in Chinatown. References to the Resistantes, women who fought undercover for France against Nazi rule broaden her main theme of the terrible lives of Chinese workers in Chinese run sweatshops in Paris. ( )

Perhaps, this series has run it's course. It's been a favorite of mine, but I was not impressed with this entry. There seemed to be too many issues secondary to the main plot and at least one attack on Aimee that didn't make sense. ( )

How can you not be up for a trip to Paris and all its delights with fashion conscious Aimee Leduc? Aimee is a PI who is always embroiled in some conspiracy involving, at a minimum, the police and the bad guys. In the 12th in the series, her partner, the dwarf Renee, has fallen in love with an illegal Chinese immigrant. Aimee stumbles upon a body written in shrink-wrap, and, as she tries to find the murderer, has to sort through all sorts of intrigue....secret service, police, Chinese mafia, 14th century alchemy and a secret society. Sounds exhausting....well, it is. A total page-turner and at times difficult to follow how Aimee manages to solve the mystery. But you'll enjoy the journey, anyway....And did I mention Aimee's mother is also a skeleton in the closet. ( )
