The Fibonacci family saved Mercy Watts’ life and now she owes them a favor. Calpurnia Fibonacci calls on Mercy to make good. When you’re dealing with a powerful mafia family, refusing isn’t an option. So Mercy travels to Paris, home of the Louvre, catacombs, and secrets, to search for the identity of a woman glimpsed for just a moment on the fashionable Rue Cler and some answers to a few family mysteries of her own. To make matters worse, Chuck and Aaron tag along and they have agendas of their own. With the mafia and the shadowy Klinefeld Group involved, finding the wife of Riley will be much more dangerous than she ever expected.
