“Don’t be surprised by the Eiffel Tower on the cover; sparkling British amateur sleuth Amory Ames has traveled with husband Milo to Paris in response to a disturbing letter from his childhood nanny. She works for celebrated parfumier Helios Belanger, whose new perfume is about to be released. And our sleuthing couple is quite sure it’s not the heady scent of the perfume that makes Belanger suddenly drop dead.

The latest in Robb’s “In Death” series, optioned for TV; with a national laydown on September 5.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert
