Kerri's book pick of the week is "The Bones of Paris" by Laurie R. King.

Publishers Weekly sums up the plot:

Bennett Grey receives a letter from Harris Stuyvesant, his friend but "a man whose motives Grey had reason to distrust," containing four photographs whose contents are so disturbing that the suicidal Grey burns them immediately. The action then shifts to Paris 10 days earlier, where Stuyvesant, a former FBI man who left on bad terms with Hoover, is trying to trace a missing 22-year-old American woman, Pip Crosby.

The Denver Post says she "excels at weaving real people into a private-eye novel, elevating the plot while delivering a clear-eyed look at this epoch."
