Murder at the Lanterne Rouge by Cara Black

I am always intrigued by private investigator Aimee Leduc’s adventures in obscure corners of Paris where the average tourist doesn’t tour.  This time Aimee and her business partner, Rene, are in Chinatown to meet Rene’s girlfriend, Meizi–who disappears without explanation.  Then the body of a young scientist, shrink-wrapped in plastic is found in an alley.  Aimee has to tie all the ends together, and that includes a mysterious alchemical formula plus still another trail that may lead to her mother, who abandoned her years ago.
