Leopold Blake is a Wanted man. The Paris police are after him for stealing a painting from the Louvre and for murder. An assassin is hunting him down to carry out his contract. He and his bodyguard are arrested, but Blake manages to escape with the help of Sophie, an art restorer. They are soon joined by Mary, an American police detective. What follows is a manhunt across the city with Blake and his companions barely staying a step ahead of the police and the assassin. Blake knows he has been setup for the crimes and is determined to unmask the person behind the plot before the police arrive.
This story is full of thrilling action. Leopold Blake is a security consultant for the FBI and a little bit quirky, but he’s sharp as a tack and able to always stay a step ahead of his enemy. I really enjoyed this story and its various cast of characters. The non-stop action kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. All in all, the book is definitely worth the read.
