The Book Artist: A Hugo Marston Novel – B&N ReadoutsThis time, Hugo, Regional Security Officer at the American embassy, is asked by his boss to escort a beautiful American artist to a party and agrees to be her date the following night at her exhibition opening. When the artist is found murdered at the event, Hugo is quick to offer his services to the local police force having worked along side them on previous cases. Unfortunately, this time, the detective in charge is not as welcoming. Besides the murder plot, Hugo is also keeping up with his friend and colleague, Tom, who is in Amsterdam chasing down a man whom he believes is trying to kill them both. In typical Pryor style, the descriptions of Paris are mesmerizing. To those of us who have been there, his novels read like a love letter to the city. To the reader yet to visit, the novels are a siren song that should not be ignored.

Perhaps too much? The ingredients are all present: two lovely and talented women, a revenge-crazed criminal out for blood, a brutal murder, a power-hungry Parisian detective, and an assortment of possible culprits who would make Agatha Christie proud. Add to this the setting of Paris in winter, and the stage is set for action—and plenty of it. This novel is particularly ambitious. Not only is Hugo involved in trying to solve a difficult murder case, nor is he simply engaged in attempting to extricate his love interest, Claudia Roux, from clouds of suspicion, but he and his long-time colleague, Tom Green, are being tracked down by Richard Cofer, who is determined to avenge the killing of his brother during a robbery.
Hugo Marston held the door open for the young woman as she came into the foyer of the apartment building, bundled up as she was against the rain and cold. A shopping bag dangled from one of her wrists, and she held a small, white dog in the crook of her other arm. Hugo gave her a smile and ducked out onto Rue Jacob. He was normally the friendly sort, especially with people in his building, but Miss Errico was new there and had delayed Hugo with her chatter on too many occasions for him to misread the signals. As pretty as she was, chatty, dog-carrying twenty-five-year-olds were not on his radar. He pulled his coat around him as the chill seeped in, and his fedora kept the light rain out of his eyes as he made his way toward the River Seine. His path was illuminated by the glow from the store fronts, and occasional streetlamps overhead.
