Cara Black, the acclaimed crime fiction writer with a penchant for penning Parisian police procedurals, gave a shout-out this past weekend to RadioLulu on her Twitter account. Cara tweeted, "a la Louise Brooks 20's music on Radio Lulu http://www.live365.com/stations/298896"
As many readers know, Cara Black is the author of the bestselling and award nominated Aimée Leduc Investigation series - each of which is set in a different district in Paris. The series has has been translated into five languages. Her most recent book is last year's Murder in the Latin Quarter. Forthcoming in March from Soho Press is the tenth book in the series, Murder in the Palais Royal.
It's something of an understaement to say Cara Black is a Francophile. This San Francisco-based author really knows her stuff, and visits the City of Lights at least once a year to gather material. That's why her books are so good, and so popular.
The author may have come across RadioLulu (which plays its fair share of 1920s / 1930s French music) after having responded to a recent LBS blog about French novels which mention Louise Brooks. The author offered to help! Thank you Cara Black.
