Detective Aimee Leduc finds herself in peril as she investigates a car bombing in the Belleville section of Paris.
It is April 1994, a particularly cold and rainy spring. Tensions run high in Belleville, the working class neighborhood where Edith Piaf lived, as illegal Algerian immigrants on a hunger strike have taken sanctuary in a church, protesting harsh deportations and demanding that the ministry provide them with residence permits.
Aimee turns her attention from corporate computer security when her friend, a Defense Minister's wife, begs for her help after a terrorist bombing. Aimee's investigation leads her from the exclusive Place Vendome to the underground North African network. With the assistance of Inspector Morbier and her partner, Rene, a dwarf with impeccable computer hacking skills, Aimee must search among Islamic fundamentalists and Algerian nationalists for the truth.

This was one of the slowest moving books I have ever read. Black takes a very long time setting up the story and only within the last 50+ pages does it get semi-interesting. I would not suggest this book for anyone wanting a thrilling, action-packed book.
