Murder at the Lanterne Rouge
Author: Cara Black
From Mysterious Reviews: One of the better crime novels in this long-running series, it is very complicated plot-wise yet thoughtfully constructed, a mystery that requires some patience on the part of the reader due to all that is going on, but one that is ultimately quite rewarding in the end.
Synopsis (from the publisher): Aimée Leduc is happy her long-time business partner René has found a girlfriend. Really, she is. It's not her fault if she can't suppress her doubts about the relationship; René is moving way too fast, and Aimée's instincts tell her Meizi, this supposed love of René's life, isn't trustworthy. And her misgivings may not be far off the mark: Meizi disappears during a Chinatown dinner to take a phone call and never comes back to the restaurant. Minutes later, the body of a young man, a science prodigy and volunteer at the nearby Musée, is found shrink-wrapped in an alleyway — with Meizi's photo in his wallet.
