The Man Upon the Stair: Excerpt

This week's issue of Bewildering Stories features an excerpt from my third Inspector Lefebvre historical mystery, The Man Upon the Stair. Here's a link to the excerpt.


The Man Upon the Stair will be out February 6, and is currently available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailers.

“A dizzying number of details recreate the nineteenth-century Paris of artists, prostitutes, aristocrats, gamblers, and spies. Achille continues to endear, with his mashed flowers and good heart, much like Louise Penny’s Armand Gamache.”
- Booklist

“The third of Inbinder’s lush, leisurely period procedurals favors the journey over the destination, with back stories and period touches in nearly every chapter.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“Inbinder’s solid third mystery set in fin-de-siecle Paris finds the capable Achille Lefebvre dealing with blowback from the arrest and execution of terrorist bomber Laurent Moreau. An intriguing plot. ”
- Publishers Weekly

“A wonderfully atmospheric period policiere.”
- The Wall Street Journal (Praise for the Achille Lefebvre series)

“Inbinder's tale is an enjoyable romp through a vibrant time in history with great artists, Can Can dancers, and underworld mobsters set against a pleasingly tawdry Parisian backdrop.”
- The Cleveland Plain Dealer (Praise for the Achille Lefebvre series)

“Inbinder weaves a wonderful tale and his plotting and pacing are right on the money. ”
- Crimespree Magazine (Praise for the Achille Lefebvre series)
