Laurie R. King, the New York Times bestselling author of the beloved Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes mystery series, turns to the vibrant and sensual world of Paris during the Jazz Age in The Bones of Paris, a brilliant and evocative stand-alone novel. It is September 1929, and Harris Stuyvesant, former agent with the U.S. Bureau of Investigation turned private investigator, is getting paid to wander the streets of Paris, scouring bars and cafes in search of a missing twenty-two year old girl from Boston. Her family became alarmed when all communication from Philippa stopped and so they hired Stuyvesant to track her down. He follows her trail, finding that she is known to many, from Hemingway to Man Ray to Shakespeare & Company’s Sylvia Beach. Then the evidence leads him to the Théătre du Grand-Guignol in Montmartre where Stuyvesant realizes that he will have to descend into the darkest depths of madness, sifting through the bones of Paris, to find a killer of monstrous depravity.
Laurie R. King is the author of thirteen Russell/Holmes novels, as well as the acclaimed stand-alone thrillers, A Dark Place, Folly, Keeping Watch, and Touchstone. She lives in northern California.
