About this book
The brand new Eiffel Tower is the glory of the 1889 Universal Exposition. But one sunny afternoon, a woman collapses and dies on this great Paris landmark. Can a bee-sting really be the cause of death? Or is there a more sinister explanation?
Subtitled, "A Victor Legris Mystery". This is the first in a series of six Parisian murder mysteries. A dazzling evocation of late-nineteenth century Paris by a bookseller and amateur sleuth, Claude Izner.
