Cara Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of
14 books set in different arrondisement in Paris featuring the Private
Investigator Aimée Leduc series. Cara has received multiple nominations
for the Anthony and Macavity Awards, a Washington Post Book World Book
of the Year citation, the Médaille de la Ville de Paris—the Paris City

culture—and invitations to be the Guest of Honor at conferences such as
the Paris Polar Crime Festival and Left Coast Crime. With more than
400,000 books in print, the Aimée Leduc series has been translated into
German, Norwegian, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, and Hebrew.
Libby Fischer Hellmann writes Compulsively Readable Thrillers. Her 11th novel, Nobody’s Child, the 4th entry in her Georgia Davis series, was released in September, 2014. The year prior, Havana Lost, a stand-alone literary thriller and love story set in Cuba, was released. A Bitter Veil, set in revolutionary Iran during the late ’70s was released in 2012. Along with Set The Night On Fire (2010), which goes back to the late Sixties in Chicago, these stand-alone thrillers are what Libby calls her “Revolution Trilogy.”
She also writes two crime fiction series: The Ellie Foreman series, a four volume set which Libby describes as a cross between “Desperate Housewives” and “24.” Chicago P.I. Georgia Davis first appeared in one of those novels, but now has her own series, which has grown to four volumes as well.
She has just finished The Incidental Spy, a novella set during the early years of the Manhattan Project in Chicago, and she’s currently working on the 5th Ellie Foreman novel.
