Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Three Hours in Paris is the story of Kate Rees, the young American markswoman who has been recruited by British intelligence to drop into Paris on the dangerous business of trying to assassinate the Fuhrer. A country girl from rural Oregon-a grieving widow with no spy training but a vendetta and a lot of gumption-now has the state of the entire war in her hands. When the hit goes badly wrong, Kate is on the run for her life-all the time wrestling with the suspicion that the whole operation was a set-up. Beloved author Cara Black-author of the New York Times bestselling Aimée Leduc Parisian private investigator series-brings Occupation-era Paris to vivid life in this pulse-pounding, richly detailed story about one young American woman with the moxie to take on Hitler himself"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Why did Hitler arrive in Paris in June 1940—apparently planning to bask in the glory of the German victory over France—and then leave only three hours later? It remains one of WWII's unanswered questions, but Black, in her first historical thriller, posits an intriguing theory: an assassination attempt. The would-be assassin here, American marksman Kate Rees, recovering from the death of her British husband and infant daughter in a bombing, is drafted by British intelligence to do the deed, but, of course, the scheme goes awry, leaving Kate abandoned in Nazi-held Paris, her escape plan compromised and looking for answers as to why she was betrayed and by whom. Black, author of the beloved Aimée Leduc series set in 1990s Paris, knows a thing or two about frenetic dashes across the city's neighborhoods, into and out of cafés, bars, and back alleys—after all, she's been tracking Aimée's peregrinations through 19 novels—but, harried as Aimée always is, she's never had Nazis on her tail. Brilliantly building on the novel's premise, Black constructs a surprise-filled plot, fueled by breathless pacing, Alan Furst–like atmosphere, and a textured look at Resistance fighters in Paris. There is even a tantalizing subplot involving the surprisingly sympathetic German policeman who is chasing Kate (shades of The Fugitive's Lieutenant Gerard and Richard Kimble). Black stretches her wings here, soaring to new heights. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
