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.”
“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)
