"Hugo Marston investigates the death of a friend at the American Library in Paris and discovers a mystery dating back to World War II"-- Provided by publisher.
"Hugo Marston's friend Paul Rogers dies unexpectedly in a locked room at the American Library in Paris. The police conclude that Rogers died of natural causes, but Hugo is certain mischief is afoot. As he pokes around the library, Hugo discovers that rumors are swirling around some recently donated letters from American actress Isabelle Severin. The reason: they indicate that the actress had aided the resistance in frequent trips to France towards the end of World War II. Even more dramatic is the legend that the Severin Collection also contains a dagger, one she used to kill an SS officer in 1944. Hugo delves deeper into the stacks at the American library and finally realizes that the history of this case isn't what anyone suspected. But to prove he's right, Hugo must return to the scene of a decades-old crime"-- Provided by publisher.

Well Mr. Pryor is back on track in this book. ( the last book in the series was rather disjointed) Hugo and Camille continue to solve crime in Paris, in particular the deaths of the librarian in the Amercian Library in Paris, and his wife. Continuing into this books are characters Tom and Merlyn; and a new introduction of Milli. A good read, with the usual twists and turns and enough information to tempt you to making your own assumptions about the murders and who did it.
