#42: India Black and the City of Light - Carol K. Carr

When it comes to undercover work, nobody does it better than Madam of Espionage India Black...

India and the handsome British spy, French, are ordered to escort a Russian agent to Paris where he will be exchanged for one of Her Majesty’s operatives. The task seems straightforward and India looks forward to enjoying the delights of the city—and the delights of French.

But it isn’t long before things go awry and the duo are battling for their lives in the City of Light.

REVIEW:
I'm back-tracking a little bit in this series by reading this novella now, but after I finished the last book I realized this came before it. No big deal. The author was kind enough to help me out and provide me with a copy.
I love reading India's adventures.
In this novella I learned more about why the Russians play such an important part of the next book. It really helped placed pieces that I didn't even realize were missing until I read this. 
Not as exciting as a full length novel, but this is more of a set-up for the last book. I admit I like bigger doses of adventure and espionage, still it was a fast and fun read.
If you are an India Black fan, be sure to read this novella too. It is only available in eformat though.


4/5

  2. I know what you mean about a novella setting you up for the full length book. I love cozy mysteries and this sounds like it could be a fun read.

  3. It sounds like a good mystery and as a short book, it may be good for the beach.
