Without A Clue
By Chris Grover
Also available at Apple iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble
Since she had no reason to hold back, Paula told de Valois everything there was to tell about the postcards. She also mentioned the anonymous telephone calls she'd received and how she seemed to be constantly running into the man in the gray tee-shirt. She even told him about her brother's missing bags and how her relationship with Luc had undergone a sudden and unexpected change.
She told him everything she knew and everything she suspected, then waited for his response.
“What is your interpretation of these events?” he surprised her by asking.
“I assume they all have something to do with the diary. But exactly what I don't know.” She took a small sip of the strong coffee and put down the cup. “And if I am being followed, whether by the man in the gray tee-shirt or by someone else, then I have to assume it also has something to do with the diary. Don’t you agree?”
^ ^ ^Blurb:
Nine months ago, within hours of purchasing a valuable antiquarian diary for their grandfather, Paula Sinclair's brother, Eric, was killed by a car bomb and the diary disappeared.
Private investigator, Luc Dupré, along with the police, insist the diary was destroyed in the explosion. Paula isn't convinced. No trace of either the diary or Eric's briefcase was found in the rubble, and she takes it to mean the diary was stolen. The diary wasn't insured and with the bank still owed half a million dollars, Paula cannot sit idly by and watch her beloved grandfather forced into bankruptcy.
Following a mysterious phone call and a series of cryptic postcards, Paula returns to Paris to hear a rumor that the diary is being offered for sale by secret auction. She also finds out that the diary once belonged to Luc's family. When her relationship with Luc takes a sudden change from business to personal, she's positive he's using her and his job to get it back.
