Elliot Paul, an American journalist, first walked into rue de la Huchette in the summer of 1923.?There, ' he wrote,?I found Paris.' His biography of the street brings to life a cast of charaters, from the stately M. de Malancourt to l'Hibou the tramp, from the culturally precocious Hyacinthe to a bevy of prostitutes. Their friendships and enmities, culture and way of life are woven into a tapestry as compelling as a novel. Yet as the threat of the Second World War grows and the political polarisation between right and left intensifies, it endows their quiet, heroic lives with a tragic poignan

""A sizzling concoction of murder, merriment, and madness." -- Saturday Review. While vacationing in Normandy, suave sleuth Homer Evans and his stylish, pistol-packing companion Miriam Leonard catch sight of a notorious gang member. The two spot him again upon their departure from the Rouen train station, when he appears to be covertly signaling to someone in their compartment. The compartment's occupants include a very proper Bostonian with a formidable dog; the Bostonian's attractive sister; and the celebrated American violinist Anton Diluvio, along with his priceless Guarnerius. Dog and violin have a near-fatal encounter as the train enters the Gare St. Lazare, but fate does not play its full hand until the following evening. By the end of Diluvio's concert in the great Salle Gaveau, someone from the train compartment will be dead and the Guarnerius will have disappeared -- and with it, Diluvio's eccentric accompanist. A mixture of serious detection and madcap adventure, this stylish whodunit unfolds against a richly evoked background of Paris in the 1930s"--

It has the delicious irresponsibility of a Wodehouse plot. . . . It's one of the funniest books we've read in a long time. It contains a great deal of shrewd satire.The New York Times Multimillionaire and philanthropist Hugo Weiss is known in every capital of the Western world as a munificent patron of the arts. When Weiss suddenly vanishes while on a visit to Paris, his disappearance sets the stage for this uncommonly witty and urbane mystery. Homer Evans, an intrepid American detective, turns his keen intellect and remarkable intuition toward solving the puzzle of the financier's disappearance. Assisted by his sharpshooting girlfriend, a cowgirl from the American West, Evans plunges into a maelstrom of kidnapping, art forgery, tax evasion, murder, and a plot to restore the French monarchy. Set against the backdrop of bohemian Montparnasse, the story hurtles along at a breathless pace and in a tone of relentless good cheer, despite the rising body count. The first installment in a popular series that parodies the famous Philo Vance stories of S. S. Van Dine, this novel offers sophisticated humor amid a madcap romp as well as a challenging mystery
