Mark Pryor
The Bookseller

Hugo Marsten, the head of security at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, helplessly witnesses the abduction of his friend Max from the bookseller's stall on the banks of the Seine. When it seems that the Paris police are not giving the crime proper attention, Hugo takes matters into his own hands to investigate with the help of a semiretired CIA agent/buddy and an attractive local crime reporter. As more bouquinistes turn up dead, Hugo begins to unravel the mysterious connections between historical events and current day violence - at his own peril. This is an excellent first novel by Mark Pryor and I, for one, hope we haven't seen the last of Hugo Marsten. Check our catalog.
