The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

May 21, 2018

This week it’s award-winning author Cara Black, best known for her “Murder in…” Paris series. There's Murder in the Marais, Murder in Belleville… and murders in all but two of the other arrondissements.

Anyway, in this podcast episode we spoke about everything from how Cara meets with cops in Paris for research, to why paying in euros ‘isn’t sexy’, and to what Julius Caesar’s Paris blog would be about.


And Cara was an excellent sport and hung around for two videos.

First, here's when we traced the route between the home and office of her fictional detective, Aimee Leduc. And if you like that video, please subscribe on YouTube :)

Cara also did a 30-minute live walk show with me as well, starting on Rue de Paradis (where she set the book Murder on the Rue de Paradis).

Please consider supporting The Earful Tower on Patreon to unlock access to the full video and much more.

Cara’s new book is Murder on the Left Bank and it’s coming in June. Find out more here.

And lastly, a deep and sincere thank you to the lovely Patrons who keep this show going. You guys would be the heroes if I ever wrote a Paris detective novel.
