I liked the plot of this story set in Paris more than the ones set in Quebec, especially since the poet, Ruth and her duck, whom I find annoying, were almost absent from the text. Armand's whole family gets involved in this story from his son and daughter, Annie and her police hubby, Daniel and his family, to his stepfather Stephen whose discovery is the crux of this plot which concerns the power of corporations. Interestingly, on a search of this title in the library's database, another book with the same title showed up in the results, but this one was about the financial crash of 2008 involving financial moguls in New York and their government bail-out. Penny's police procedural book is a page turner becoming more so as the plot crashes to the concluding chapter. The author continues her themes of love and safety found in family members in this book along with corruption in high places. Looks like the bunch will be together in Three Pines and Montreal for the next book on similar themes.
