The Bones of Paris by Laurie R. King

The Bones of Paris

Known for her Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Laurie King goes in a new direction with Harry Stuyvesant, private detective. Missing since the end of March, Philippa “Pip” Crosby’s family from Boston hires Harris Stuyvesant, private investigator, to find her. Stuyvesant starts his search in Paris with Crosby’s friends and acquaintances, but the trail has gone cold. Europe has become a playground for poor little rich girls with allowances rebelling against their families. Crosby has involved herself in the art scene, spending some time as a model before her disappearance. As Stuyvesant goes deeper and deeper into the art scene, he finds disturbing representations of art and begins to wonder if he will find Pip Crosby alive. Paris 1929 with it's decadent lifestyle, gives a sense of high almost frenetic spirits before the crash and depression of the 1930s. Find in the new book section under Fiction KING
