Abstract:

"The most precious "lost book" in history has been found - and stolen all over again - in Paris. Suddenly, its desperate pursuers include the most diabolical literary criminal in the world, Krisko Krillkin, his merciless moll, Lulu Blue, and the City of Lights' darkest gangster, Eddy Francmenu. The man who re-lost the lost masterpiece is a mild-mannered bookseller. Chester Quinn is hopelessly overmatched against Krillkin, Lulu and Eddy's gang, the St. Julien Rollers. Luckily, into Quinn's life floats Circe Evans, granddaughter of Paris' most resourceful, renowned and complacent detective, Homer Evans. Circe, just retired as the famous Crazy Horse Saloon's most popular nude soloist, grasps instantly the gravity of Quinn's dilemma, not just for him but for a literary world deeply imperiled by the vile machinations of Krillkin. Circe Evans, whose brilliance has only begun to emerge, assembles a motley but fiercely loyal crew determined to rescue the priceless manuscript, including Quinn's sidekick, Bodkin the Bold, private eye Eamon Maguire, ne'er-do-well author Rip Duckworth, flamboyant matron Cynthia Mangrove, a Russian giant named Pyotr Petrovich Petrozavodsky and Circe's fellow Crazy Horse dancer, Candida Bandanna. Skulduggery in the Latin Quarter is a breakneck dash through Paris, from Montparnasse to Montmartre, interrupted by a wild goose chase to London. There are murders, of course, and near-murders. There are lovers and torturers and naked ladies. Circe's crew, hounded by Krillkin and terrorized by the Rollers, careens toward a spectacular shootout on the steps of Sacre Coeur where finally, a shocking surprise explodes from the pages of Lawrence of Arabia's masterpiece -- lost, lost again, and finally found in the heart of the Latin Quarter, after a century of mystery."--Publisher's website.
