Product description


"The flawlessly constructed whodunit sharply contrasts with the gritty flashbacks to Hugh's past, a subplot that rewards series fans with a new layer of depth to the central characters."


"Entertaining. . . . A fascinating cast, an intriguing subplot that delves into Hugo's past, and a gorgeous Parisian setting add to the story's appeal."

Publishers Weekly


"Seriously good reading...Paris fans will love the descriptions of the city, recognize favourite places and feel they can see the scenes as the story unfolds...The plot is deftly weaved, intelligent and fast paced and this modern day Sherlock Holmes - think Jack Reacher if he was cultured - isn't perfect a perfect hero, but you'd definitely want him on your side. Clever, sharp, appealing Hugo Marston - a terrific character and a great read."

The Good Life France

"Pryor is an expert at characterization... Equally alive are the Paris locations; to read the book is to smell and taste the food, feel the air of the city, and hear the language... Spending a couple of hours in the company of Hugo Marston is always enjoyable, and reading The Paris Librarian was no exception."

― Reviewing the Evidence

"Once you've had a bit, you can't wait for more."

― (on The Bookseller)

"Mark Pryor is one of the best new voices in crime fiction; and Hugo Marston, one of the most appealing detectives to come along in years."

― Deborah Crombie, New York Times-bestselling author

"Sure to appeal to mystery lovers, book collectors, and Francophiles alike, The Paris Librarian is an welcome addition to an enjoyable series."

― Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Those who love Paris and environs will thrill to the setting, which is ably and lovingly evoked....Marston is a well-drawn and engaging character..."


"The sixth Hugo Marston novel has it all: a Paris setting, a locked-room death that may or may not be murder, a beautiful actress who was a spy for the French resistance during the Second World War and a dead Nazi...Marston follows the clues in a finely structured plot that's one of Pryor's best books yet."

― Toronto Globe & Mail
