The Paris Librarian: A Hugo Marston Novel
Paris in late summer, someone to love, and enough books to make any book lover happy…what’s not to love? Unfortunately, a potential murder can wreck anyone’s day and spoil the peacefulness of even the most serene café setting.
Hugo Marston is once more pulled into an investigation when Paul Rogers, librarian, dies locked in a room alone in the basement of the American Library in Paris. His good friend, Hugo, head of security at the US Embassy and fellow bibliophile, is the first to discover him and convinces the local police that their conclusion of death from natural causes is just not right.
Mark Pryor’s latest novel in the Hugo Marston series, The Paris Librarian is as solid and engaging as the previous five. Once more Pryor constructs a plot full of twists that keep the reader guessing until the end. His descriptions of Paris are not only convincing but are written with a depth and clarity that only a true lover of the city could.
Hugo Marston is the kind of guy you would love to sit with at Café Laruns, discussing first editions and sipping Americanos as the early autumn rains fall on the windows. I look forward to meeting up with him again very soon!
