Review

“A roller-coaster of a ride which will keep you on the edge of your seat right to the dramatic ending…the story moves along at a cracking pace, brilliantly plotted with many twists and turns.” —Mystery People

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery set in PARIS
By TripFiction on January 1, 2017
Paris makes for an excellent backdrop Leigh Russells’ Girl in Danger. Starting out in the Marais, there are all kinds of local highlights that will make you feel you are in the City of Light with the characters.

Lucy is a rookie reporter living in the city, and her friend Nina has come to stay. A possible scoop is soon hers for the taking – it seems – when an anonymous informant contacts her. By the Canal Saint-Martin, where she is to wait for further details, a man slips her a key and fob and disappears into the ether. But he has made it clear to her that “they” are watching.

She returns to her flat, Nina has gone out and in the meantime the place has been trashed. The newspaper chief gives her the contact details of a PI, Alain, and together they find themselves evading the unwanted attentions of gangster Patrice Durand and his henchmen “There ain’t nowhere in Paris where you can hide from Patrice“. Ominous! They are clearly after something in her possession. Whilst Alain’s target is Patrice, Lucy is more concerned about the well-being of her friend; much to her consternation the police seem most disinterested in searching for her whereabouts, so she feels she must fall back on her own sleuthing instincts to track her down. This savvy Nancy Drew of the modern era is full of cunning plans, truly fearless and determined, she shies away seemingly from nothing and ploughs her way through hazards and frightening encounters.

Twists and turns aplenty as Lucy rushes around Paris bringing together clues and constructing plans to track down Nina before it’s too late. And all set against a stunning Parisian backdrop.

When people suggest books that are evocative of Paris, the name of author Cara Black often comes up, as she sets her mysteries, starring Aimée Leduc, in the various arrondissements of the city. I think Lucy Hall, a sassy character created by Leigh Russell makes for an admirable alternative for enjoying this stunning city through fiction.
