This story is set in Paris when painters and writers were everywhere and the characters who were in India once again make an appearance in the story. Well researched and well written Barbara Cleverly's books are always worthwhile. Aug 17, Bob Harris rated it really liked it. We return to France and meet a number of characters from India. Good to follow these books in series to keep up with the cast of characters.
I really enjoy the twists and turns with unexpected endings. A quick and entertaining read, this time Joe Sandilands is in Paris, and a lot of the cultural icons of that time are present in the story. As always, the story is entertaining, and well written, although it didn't grab me as others in this same series. Nevertheless, it's worth your time. Nov 23, Mary Montgomery rated it liked it.
Pretty good book. This was my first Joe Sandilands mystery, and I liked the time. I was also surprised by the perp, so that's fun.

Nice to get reacquainted with Joe and this one takes place in Paris. Lots of local color or the time between the two world wars. Plus a thought provoking who and how done it.

The insertion of real people into the story adds verisimilitude to the sense of time and place, but sense of place is an aspect at which Cleverly excels. View 1 comment.

Josephine Baker makes a grand appearance, as does Louis Armstrong and the music of the jazz age in Paris. Joe is caught up in a plot-twisting murder investigation while in Paris on a Scotland Yard mission. The French police believe they have their man, but Joe knows better and sets out to find and convict the culprit. This book left me confused at times; the plot twists were okay but the dialogue was overplayed and stiff. I never really got ahead of Joe, except for the very last revelation o Ms.
I never really got ahead of Joe, except for the very last revelation on the last page- that I guessed correctly. As Joe and Jean-Phillipe chased down murderers, the book became a fuzzy mess of "I don't care who did it," flat writing. She pulls it out at the end, but even so, I think it's a little too late. This won't stop me from reading the next one. I like Joe and the cast of characters around him and Cleverly weaves a good tale. This one just got a little away from her.
Oct 13, Kim rated it liked it Shelves: booksread. An ok mystery, but kinda disappointing after the last Joe Sandilands book, which was fantastic. This one is also set in France and is a fairly entertaining, if brief, novel. But I was annoyed with Famous Person in a Historical Novel syndrome in which one famous person after another and one famous event after another just happen to brush shoulders with or somehow involve our protagonists.
I thought the book should have used either Josephine Baker or Charles Lindbergh, but not both. And then there An ok mystery, but kinda disappointing after the last Joe Sandilands book, which was fantastic. And then there's Georges Simenon, who is a more obscure historical personage, but again, felt superfluous.
The mystery was a sort of intentional melodrama, but in such a short book it just felt contrived. Add in the appearances of characters from earlier books in the series and this is just too chock full of amazing coincidences and special guest appearances for a book it only takes a few hours to read. Sep 13, Dorothy rated it liked it. This is my first Barbara Cleverly and I will be reading more! I have to admit, I didn't warm to her writing style at first though I can't put my finger on why , but the plot was well contrived and Joe made a good,if uncomplicated, hero.
She had obviously done her research on Paris in the 20's so the sense of place was terrific.

I usually hate it when authors shoehorn famous people into their fiction, but in this instance I loved the artful and not over-done inclusion of Josephine Baker and her lover and Maigret author Georges Simenon. I could've done without Charles Lindbergh, though! Jul 10, Spitz rated it it was ok Shelves: historical , mysteries.
I haven't been reading this series in order. They seem to me to be hit or miss in terms of being a satisfying mystery. The not so smooth mechanics of the plot however got in the way of my enjoyment. The distinctive, very British voice of Sandilands's speech and thoughts characterize almost every character's speech and thoughts as well.
I really appreciate it when an I haven't been reading this series in order. I really appreciate it when an author is able to create characters who differentiate themselves by their particular language patterns and vocabulary. Mar 16, Ali rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , , historical-fiction. Barbara Cleverly is one of my new favorite mystery writers.
Her books are just literary enough that I don't feel guilty reading them, they're light enough to be beach reading, and they have fun historical settings with just enough action. She does a good job of plotting and pacing, and "Folly du Jour" is a perfect example of everything I like about her books. The only thing preventing me from giving her books more stars is that there's very little character development; it's part of what makes Cl Barbara Cleverly is one of my new favorite mystery writers.
The only thing preventing me from giving her books more stars is that there's very little character development; it's part of what makes Cleverly's novels great light reading, but keeps them from rising to the level of mysteries by PD James or Henning Mankell.

Best yet! I love this series, particularly its sense of time and place. This one is especially well done. Though I loved when Sandilands was in India, the author did an amazing job of recreating Paris in the roaring twenties! I highly recommend searching for Josephine Baker on youtube where you can see actual film of her descending into the audience in an egg then dancing the charleston - exactly as described in the book! One other clever little touch: Georges Simenon, author of the Maigret books Best yet!
