Black's previous book, Murder in the Rue de Paradis (now in paperback), received rave reviews, and spent over a month on the San Francisco Chronicle and NCIBA bestseller lists. Murder in the Latin Quarter, her ninth and latest book in the highly praised Aimee Leduc series, begins with a mysterious woman named Mirielle, who arrives at Leduc Detective and announces she is Aimee's sister.

“Winspear has written an intriguing psychological mystery about the damage war inflicts on a person's soul, as well as a thought-provoking look at the lengths to which the hopeless and mentally unstable might go to be heard.”
