Murder Below Montparnasse by Cara Black
Aimee Leduc stands out among detective heroes as her femininity and fashionability are a large part of who she is and how she behaves. Cara Black gives us a clear sense of who she is from the Chanel No. 5 that she carries in her second hand Louis Vuitton purse to the clothes that she puts together with an incomparable style. The brands, the clothes, the attitude are all part of this unique character that I couldn’t help but become fascinated by. It seems that in Aimee Leduc, Cara Black gives us a female detective that women readers can follow both for her detective adventures and for her sense of style and romance.
