The Story: When Paris private detective Aimée Leduc decides to investigate the Haitian woman claiming to be her half sister, twists and turns — not to mention bodies — quickly pile up in Cara Black’s Murder In the Latin Quarter.
Movie Pitch: Kinsey Millhone turned loose in Before Sunset.
Lowdown: In Leduc’s ninth outing, Paris, as always, sparkles in all its gargoyled, dusty, cobblestoned glory. If the mystery never quite matches the atmosphere, well, it hardly seems to matter. B
