“Murder close to home is like a knife in the heart.”

When an altercation between two dog owners in the famous Parc Monceau triggers a brutal murder in an alley behind the Paris apartment building of expat and private eye Claire Baskerville, Claire knows she needs to get involved. Already struggling with the unexpected and rancorous visit of her daughter Catherine—as well as the desperate hunt for another of her missing grandbabies—Claire is reluctant at first to take the case until she is graphically shown just how vital it is that the elderly dog lover Madame Lavigne gets justice. Not just for her, and the building they all live in, but for Claire too—and as it turns out, the safety of her whole family. Available everywhere–and in paperback–and right here.
