Things can get pretty dark in the City of Light
Claire Baskerville is a sixty-something American who finds herself alone in Paris when her husband is brutally murdered. Reeling from the onslaught of devastating secrets he left behind Claire is stunned to realize she no longer knows who to trust.
She only knows she can’t move forward until she finds out the truth behind who killed her husband.
In spite of a genetic brain anomaly that makes it impossible for her to remember faces –even ones she’d seen just moments before, and all alone in a foreign city, Claire doggedly collects the clues that will lead her to her husband’s killer.
Unfortunately, the closer she gets to the truth, the more determined that killer is to make sure she never leaves Paris alive.

Interesting story, and setting.45
I’m not quite halfway through and I had to stop to write a review. I read a lot, I’ve read other books by this author and a lot of mysteries, and Déjà Dead is one of the best in a while. I really can’t describe much—I want to encourage others to read without spoiling. My attention was caught from the get-go and no less that three times has my jaw dropped in surprise. I appreciate the author uses some French, minimal translation, without interrupting the flow of the novel. J’ai étudié a long time ago and don’t remember as much as I like.55
I enjoyed this book, as it kept me guessing! Highly recommend...55
