The Montmartre Investigation

Author: 
Claude Izner
Old Paris -- July, 1891:  Barefoot, robed in red... and dead.  Beautiful?  Hard to tell.  Her face disfigured after she was strangled and dumped in the Boulevard Montmartre.  Then something stranger: a goatherd arrives at Victor Legris's bookshop and presents the proprietor/sleuth with a single red shoe.  Victor is hooked; now he and Jojo must get to the bottom of this-

Montmartre is the third of the Victor Legris cases, now making their way into print in English.  Start with Murder on the Eiffel Tower and The Disappearance at Père-Lachaise. After this novel, les histoires will continue with The Assassin in the Marais later this year... with more to come.  Claude Izner has spun nine of these case histories in France and they are slowly making le voyage to our New World.
 
Looks like a very palpable and personal exploration of Old Paris; life on the Seine, with stops at cafes, cabarets, even the Botanical Gardens & Menagerie (the Zoo!) 
 
And Summer is parfait for travel abroad...
