"Molly and Daniel Sullivan are settling happily into the new routines of parenthood, but their domestic bliss is shattered when a gang retaliates against Daniel after he makes a big arrest. Daniel wants his family safely out of New York as soon as possible. Knowing she needs to protect their young son Liam, Molly agrees to take him on the long journey to Paris to stay with her friends Sid and Gus, who are studying art in the City of Light. But upon arriving in Paris, nothing goes as planned. Sid and Gus are nowhere to be found, and Molly's search for them leads her to the doorstep of a renowned Impressionist artist, whom she's horrified to learn has just been murdered. The longer Molly goes without finding her friends, and the more she learns about the painter's death, the more she starts to wonder if she and Liam might be in even more danger in Paris than they were at home. As Impressionism gives way to Fauvism and Cubism and the Dreyfus affair rocks France, Molly races through Paris to outsmart a killer in Rhys Bowen's most spectacular Molly Murphy novel yet"-- Provided by publisher

The library was displaying the book and the cover caught my eye. I read the flap and thought it might be good. I wish I left it on display! There's no suspense, characters are flat and Paris was never so understated.

This was my introduction to Molly Murphy and I thoroughly enjoyed. Am going back to the beginning to appreciate the entire series.

I love Rhys Bowen's work! However, the middle of this book was a bit inconsequential.

The beginning was good and the last quarter was interesting. But that was it. Just not up to the normal quality standard.
