Without A Clue

“What exactly does it (the affidavit) say?” Paula asked, careful to keep her voice offhand.
For a moment, de Valois seemed reluctant to answer, then he said, “It gives no names other than that of the lawyer who made it. And he states his client came into possession of the item when she inherited her late husband's effects. Which is either true or a very clever move on the part of the seller. Because anyone interested in buying the diary knows its history. And, since it was believed to be destroyed in the explosion that killed Eric, without that affidavit a potential buyer would know it to be stolen property.”
“But it was stolen. Eric wasn't married.”
“Not to my knowledge.
^ ^ ^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.
