Murder in Clichy is the fifth mystery in a series about a young woman detective in Paris. Aimee Leduc is the daughter of a policeman who died in an explosion several years before. She owns a detective agency that does computer work, but she usually falls into some trouble. Her business partner, Rene Friant, is able to hack almost anything. Cara Black, the author, uses the various sections of Paris to tell various stories of its history. There is even a map of the section of town after the first book in the series. Murder in the Marais, the first in the series, focused on the occupation of Paris during WWII. This book focuses on the French in Vietnam and the veterans and colonizers who now live in Paris. She uses her connections with the police to help her, but there are times these connections may actually be harmful. Black enjoys doing research by wandering through the streets! I enjoy this series because of the ground level feel you get for Paris. I also like the characters that Aimee meets. The books are a fast read, but well written. Right now I have five more to go.
