The Paris Librarian by Mark Pryor

The Paris Librarian: A Hugo Marston Novel by Mark Pryor --- 262 pages

Hugo Marston, an ex-FBI profiler, now works in Paris as head of security for the U.S. Embassy. But his job seems pretty flexible, as he always has time to conduct his own investigations on the side. In this sixth book in the series, Hugo discovers an acquaintance, Paul Rogers, the director of the American Library in Paris, dead, in a locked room in the basement of the library. The police and the medical examiner say Rogers died of a heart attack. But Hugo's getting that tingling sensation on the back of his neck that says otherwise.

But then another library employee nearly dies while on duty, his symptoms eerily similar to Rogers'. And Hugo discovers Paul's fiancee dead, an apparent suicide, just a few days later. If anything that tingling sensation is getting stronger and stronger.

As Hugo delves deeper into the lives of the employees at the library he begins to suspect that the roots of this case go further back than anyone else realizes. But to find the proof, Hugo must visit the scene of a decades-old tragedy, putting more than just his life in danger.

Mystery fans will enjoy the twists and turns of Pryor's tale; lovers of Paris will revel in the descriptions of the city and its neighborhoods, cafes and joie de vivre as the plot unfolds to its unexpected conclusion.
