Paris makes for an excellent backdrop Leigh Russells’ Girl in Danger. Starting out in the Marais, there are all kinds of local highlights that will make you feel you are in the City of Light with the characters.

Lucy is a rookie reporter living in the city, and her friend Nina has come to stay. A possible scoop is soon hers for the taking – it seems – when an anonymous informant contacts her. By the Canal Saint-Martin, where she is to wait for further details, a man slips her a key and fob and disappears into the ether. But he has made it clear to her that “they” are watching.

She returns to her flat, Nina has gone out and in the meantime the place has been trashed. The newspaper chief gives her the contact details of a PI, Alain, and together they find themselves evading the unwanted attentions of gangster Patrice Durand and his henchmen “There ain’t nowhere in Paris where you can hide from Patrice“. Ominous! They are clearly after something in her possession. Whilst Alain’s target is Patrice, Lucy is more concerned about the well-being of her friend; much to her consternation the police seem most disinterested in searching for her whereabouts, so she feels she must fall back on her own sleuthing instincts to track her down. This savvy Nancy Drew of the modern era is full of cunning plans, truly fearless and determined, she shies away seemingly from nothing and ploughs her way through hazards and frightening encounters.

Twists and turns aplenty as Lucy rushes around Paris bringing together clues and constructing plans to track down Nina before it’s too late. And all set against a stunning Parisian backdrop.

The second book in the series featuring Lucy Hall finds her in a new job in Paris as an investigative reporter. Keen and eager for her first ‘big’ story, twenty-four year old Lucy is hungrily putting out feelers, or as her boss puts it more succinctly, ‘pestering people for stories.’ ‘It’s got to stop’ he says, ‘It’s not professional. So when Lucy gets an anonymous call from a possible source who suggests a questionable meeting place, she decides to ‘go it alone.’

Her anonymous contact tells her that he is giving her the story of her life, and Lucy is buzzing with excitement. Although his words that, ‘if those watching him see him talking to her they could both be dead by nightfall’ would have had me shivering in terror, they don’t have that effect on Lucy.

But when she returns to her apartment she finds it trashed and her friend Nina, who was staying with her for the summer, is missing. As expected, the police are not prepared to class Nina as a missing person until 48 hours have passed, so Lucy is on her own.

From the state of her apartment it is clear that it was a thorough search but for what? And where is Nina who knows no one in Paris? With scant to go on. Lucy determines to find her friend, but things look black when she discovers that her informant is dead. Despite the fact that Lucy now realises that she has become involved with some seriously bad people, and just how bad she learns when she meets up with a private investigator, she continues to rush headlong into trouble.

There are some harrowing and brutal scenes and the story moves along at a cracking pace, brilliantly plotted with many twists and turns.

I read the first in the Lucy Hall series and enjoyed it, however they are certainly not the same as Leigh Russell's series of books featuring Geraldine Steel. These are more mystery type of books and seem to be somewhat a slower pace. The first book in the Series Journey to Death I enjoyed and I thought it was a good introduction to Lucy. However, when we meet her in the second book she has moved to Paris to start a career as an Investigative Journalist. It becomes apparent pretty quickly that she is very new to it all and she takes every tip seriously in her quest to break into reporting. Her friend Nina visits her, however following an anonymous tip, when she returns home she finds her flat ransacked and her friend missing.

The story moves along and she meets a man who seems willing to help her but Lucy can't help but be wary as she isn't sure who she can trust. We also see the story from Nina's point of view, along with the main man who runs the criminal world in Paris. The reason I felt so indifferent with book 2 is that there were times it all felt a little repetitive. Although Lucy is a newbie, things fitted a little too neatly for her to 'bag the story of her career' and the subsequent chain of events lay just the wrong side of believable for me.

Although I liked Lucy as a character I didn't feel as connected to her in this book as much as I did the last one. Things seemed too well planned and this made me feel more indifferently about her than I did previously. The story was enjoyable enough and I think is probably a good alternative to those who don't want hard hitting, gory or violent crime novels. For me I just couldn't connect and as such didn't feel it was one of Leigh's stronger books.
