Abstract:

"Three Hours in Paris is the story of Kate Rees, the young American markswoman who has been recruited by British intelligence to drop into Paris on the dangerous business of trying to assassinate the Fuhrer. A country girl from rural Oregon-a grieving widow with no spy training but a vendetta and a lot of gumption-now has the state of the entire war in her hands. When the hit goes badly wrong, Kate is on the run for her life-all the time wrestling with the suspicion that the whole operation was a set-up. Beloved author Cara Black-author of the New York Times bestselling Aimée Leduc Parisian private investigator series-brings Occupation-era Paris to vivid life in this pulse-pounding, richly detailed story about one young American woman with the moxie to take on Hitler himself"--

In June of 1940, when Paris fell to the Nazis, Hitler spent a total of three hours in the City of Light?abruptly leaving, never to return. To this day, no one knows why. The New York Times bestselling author of the Aim?e Leduc investigations reimagines history in her masterful, pulse-pounding spy thriller, Three Hours in Paris . Kate Rees, a young American markswoman, has been recruited by British intelligence to drop into Paris with a dangerous assignment: assassinate the F?hrer. Wrecked by grief after a Luftwaffe bombing killed her husband and infant daughter, she is armed with a rifle, a vendetta, and a fierce resolve. But other than rushed and rudimentary instruction, she has no formal spy training. Thrust into the red-hot center of the war, a country girl from rural Oregon finds herself holding the fate of the world in her hands. When Kate misses her mark and the plan unravels, Kate is on the run for her life?all the time wrestling with the suspicion that the whole operation was a set-up. Cara Black, doyenne of the Parisian crime novel, is at her best as she brings Occupation-era France to vivid life in this gripping story about one young woman with the temerity?and drive?to take on Hitler himself.
