Meet Hugo Marston, former FBI profiler, now head of security for the American Embassy in Paris. When American romance author, Helen Hancock, discovers a spy camera in her room at the Sorbonne Hotel, Hugo is sent by the ambassador to check it out.

bookThe camera is real, and when an employee of the hotel is found murdered in the stairwell, the action changes from surveillance to active investigation. With the cooperation of the local police force, Hugo determines that the dead employee appears to be responsible for installing and monitoring the camera in Helen’s room. Helen’s stay in Paris includes writing her newest romance and teaching a private writing course to three students. When a video of hot and heavy sex between Helen and one of her younger male writing students hits the internet, the investigation heats up to HOT! As Hugo and Lieutenant Camille Lerens investigate the three students and everyone else involved with Helen, another murder takes place involving those in Helen’s inner circle.

This is the seventh book in the Hugo Marston series, and the first I have read. There was enough backstory so that I was never lost as the story unfolded. The characters are extremely well done, as is the Paris background. The spying and murders took you on an intricate thrill ride as they lead you right to a totally surprising ending! This was such an enjoyable read that I am going back to read the first six in the series. Mystery and thriller readers will enjoy this author and series very much.
