Second Sunday Books & Libby Hellmann welcome Three Hours in Paris author Cara Blac‪k‬ Second Sunday Books

    • Books

In June of 1940, when Paris fell to the Nazis, Hitler spent a total of  three hours in the City of Light—abruptly leaving, never to return. To  this day, no one knows why.

The New York Times bestselling author of the Aimée Leduc investigations reimagines history in her masterful, pulse-pounding spy thriller, Three Hours in Paris.

Kate  Rees, a young American markswoman, has been recruited by British  intelligence to drop into Paris with a dangerous assignment: assassinate  the Führer. Wrecked by grief after a Luftwaffe bombing killed her  husband and infant daughter, she is armed with a rifle, a vendetta, and a  fierce resolve. But other than rushed and rudimentary instruction, she  has no formal spy training. Thrust into the red-hot center of the war, a  country girl from rural Oregon finds herself holding the fate of the  world in her hands. When Kate misses her mark and the plan unravels,  Kate is on the run for her life—all the time wrestling with the  suspicion that the whole operation was a set-up.

Cara Black, doyenne of the Parisian crime novel, is at her best as she brings  Occupation-era France to vivid life in this gripping story (her first stand-alone) about one  young woman with the temerity—and drive—to take on Hitler himself.


*Features an illustrated map of 1940s Paris as full color endpapers.
