An enjoyable read.,
This review is from: Murder on the Eiffel Tower: The Victor Legris Mysteries 1: A Victor Legris Mystery (Paperback)
If you like light, quirky murder mysteries, then this one is a good bet. Like most books of the genre, it doesn't take itself seriously but then that's usually their major appeal. This particular book, however, also provides lots of historic colour and Gallic charm.
Set in Paris of the 1880's, I thought the location and the time (set during the Paris Exhibition) provided an interesting and lively backdrop for an adventure. Like all of these books, the crime and its perpetrator is not really the draw, it's the lead character and their exploits that keep you reading and I thought the hero, Victor Legris, and the cast of characters that surround him were engaging and surprisingly well written.
In all, it isn't great literature, but that's not what you buy these books for, but it is fun and kept me hooked from the first to the last.
