Cara Black, the doyenne of Parisian crime fiction, is at her best as she brings occupied France to life in this riveting story of a young woman with the courage – and drive – to take on herself. confront Hitler.

Love Paris. Love mysteries set in Paris. Bonus for WWII in Paris. But although the general plot was okay the historical inaccuracies really took me out of the story. For example, the SS guy asks “Going to check the prints against a rap sheet?” A rap sheet is an American colloquialism. Or the entire novel takes place on a Sunday. Pretty sure Bon Marché department store was not opened on Sundays back in 1940. Until about 10 years ago, you would have been hard pressed to find anything opened on Sundays in Paris. It’s still pretty shut down unless you’re going to McDonald’s. Museums, most tourist spots, movie houses and theaters remained closed during the first weeks after the surrender, as people fled Paris, and things were uncertain, gradually opening back up as things calmed down. These are somewhat simple things to catch with a bit of research. It’s too bad bc the story could have been stronger with a few tweaks.
