A departure from Cara Black's mystery series, this spy thriller does not feature the glamorous Aimée Leduc, but a hard scrabble heroine raised on ranches in the American West, Kate Rees, codename Cowgirl, on a mission to assassinate Adolf Hitler for British Intelligence. No Hermès scarves for this Cowgirl, a formidable heroine and skilled markswoman who creates her own luck, hiding in the filthy nooks and crannies of Nazi-occupied Paris during sweltering summer days of 1940.


Drawing on her intimate knowledge of Paris and its history, Black moves us through its byways in a fast-paced thriller as Kate seeks to outrun her predator, a brilliant German detective. But nothing is as it seems. Faced with challenges and betrayal, Kate, who once thought she had no reason to live, discovers her instinct to stay alive against all odds. A strangely appropriate read during this time of COVID-19, "Three Hours in Paris" is stimulating and encouraging. Black's heroine is a superb role model in a hostile world, closing in on all sides. I finished the book feeling invigorated and dauntless—you will, too. Brava Cara Black!
