It is fortunate for Aimée Leduc that she has a partner to handle the principal business of her cyber security business; she seems to have her hands full dealing with unexpected, dangerous and unremunerative cases that have personal connections. Her latest outing begins with the visit of a young Haitian woman who claims to be Aimée’s half-sister, Mirielle. This young woman pleads for help with an unspecified but urgent problem, and then promptly disappears. Both moved and intrigued, Aimée sets off in search of this mysterious sibling. It turns out that Mirielle is sought by a network of shady characters, and the trail Aimée must follow leads through corporate board-rooms, into the venerable halls of a prestigious university (the ENS), and descends into the ancient catacombs beneath the streets of the Parisian Latin Quarter.

From official release/information:

Product Description: A Haitian woman arrives at the office of Leduc Detective and announces that she is Aimée's sister, her father's illegitimate daughter. Aimée is thrilled. A virtual orphan since her mother's disappearance and her father's death, she has always wanted a sister. Her partner, René, is wary of this stranger, but Aimée embraces her and soon finds herself involved in murky Haitian politics leading to murder. The setting is the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank of the Seine, in the old university district of Paris.<
