What We're Reading Now: Bones of Paris

Bones of Paris by Laurie King (M KING)

I’m a sucker for books set in the Twenties-and this one is in Paris, to boot.  Philippa Crosby disappears; her roommate and her family have no idea where she is.  Former FBI agent (and Pip’s former lover) P I Harris Stuyvesant discovers more than one person has vanished. Is it a serial killer? What’s the motive? Ernest Hemingway, Lee Miller and Man Rey all play a role as Stuyvesant tracks the killer to a ghostly finish.   Jazz Age frenzy, expatriate Americans and tormented artists add to the excellent period detail.
