Winners and a Parisian Mystery Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Clea Simon’s Dogs Don’t Lie will go to Cindy H. of Edwardsville, IL.  Judy M. of Sun City, AZ  won Spencer Quinn’s To Fetch a Thief. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.

This week’s books take readers to Paris, via mysteries. Murder in Passy is the eleventh book in Cara Black’s Aimée Leduc Investigation series. This autographed ARC finds Aimée’s godfather, Morbier, the prime suspect when his girlfriend is strangled outside her home. Aimée’s investigation leads her to police corruption, radical Basque terrorists, and a kidnapped princess.

Or, you could go back to Paris in 1892 in Claude Izner’s The Assassin in the Marais. Bookseller Victor Legris stumbles on a new case to investigate when his business partner’s apartment is burgled, and the only item missing is a decorative goblet. But, two people connected to that goblet have been murdered, and Legris is determined to find it. This is another novel, set in Paris, that involves terrorism by anarchists.

Which Parisian mystery would you like to win, Murder in Passy or The Assassin in the Marais? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at  The subject lines should read, either "Win Murder in Passy" or "Win Assassin in the Marais.” Include your name and mailing address in the body of the email.  Entries only from the U.S., please.

The contest will close Thursday, October 20 at 6 PM PT when I'll draw the winners using a random number generator. I'll notify the winners, and I'll mail the books the next day.

These books sound good. The last mystery books I read set in France were the Georges Simenon mysteries. I will fire off a couple of e-mails right now, Lesa. Thanks for the reviews and your contests!
