In bestseller Black's fast-paced 18th Aimée Leduc investigation (after 2017's Murder in Saint-Germain), Léo Solomon, an elderly retired accountant in poor health, insists that lawyer Éric Besson, whose late mother was a friend of Léo's, deliver a notebook containing his handwritten confession and evidence of decades of police corruption to Paris's chief prosecuting attorney. Éric asks his 18-year-old nephew, Marcus, to act as courier, but Marcus never reaches his destination. When the boy's body turns up on the street two days later, the police rule the death a drug-related homicide. Éric asks his friend Aimée to investigate. Aimée, a new mother, reluctantly takes on the case only when she discovers that her late father is implicated by information in the now-missing notebook. When the killer threatens her daughter, Aimée is forced to accept help from the source she trusts least: her family.

An okay murder mystery. I enjoyed the main character, a single mom, who works for a detective agency specializing in computer issues.

" The body, now a mound under a blue foil cover, had been lifted onto a gurney. A tech stepped on a pedal, and the gurney jerked up. The woman's thin wrist flapped out over the railing. Her fingernails were broken, grimy and smudged with clotted blood." / " Miles Davis's pink tongue licked her ankles. She leaned down, stroked his silky back. ' Missed you, fur ball,' she said." / " Serge, whom she'd known since her year of premed, sat at the outdoor table of the TRES MODERNE café, les Docks, a Metro hop from Serge's office at the morgue. The thick black frames on his glasses matched his thick black hair and trimmed beard. He glanced at his watch. ' What's so important, Aimee? Got to pick up the twins.' "
