Kurzbeschreibung

The City of Light has a very dark side. Art student Clary Ashton can’t imagine a more perfect spot to study painting than Paris in the spring of 1878, until she witnesses a body thrown into the Seine, the body of Liam Heaton, another art student with a mysterious background. What Clary thinks is murder becomes much more as Liam’s secrets come to light, exposing the secrets of those she thought she knew.

Clary finds herself drawn into a world she didn't realize existed, one spanning both the murky underworld and the glittering salons of the city. And when she is caught between two dangerous men - a political extremist days away from a royal assassination, and the young intrepid British secret agent who is determined to stop him - Clary doesn't know who to trust. She does know that if she doesn't find the murderer, she may become a victim herself.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A gentle mystery - great ending 18. Oktober 2012
Von AnnWhite - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
My typical genre is a suspenseful thriller - the kind that keeps me up all night holding my breath. This was not such a book. That being said, I found The Gargoyle in the Seine a well written gentle mystery. The body dropped at the beginning and we follow the life and times of a group of art students as the mystery continues. The characters are great, the scenery interesting, and the fact that the mystery is unsolvable until the very end keeps the reader coming back for more.
The author is a talented writer - the research on Paris and the time period was well done. I will recommend this book and follow this author.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Victoriana 23. September 2012
Von silverlightlee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The premise of the book is clever - the location and time period are fascinating - but the characters fail to make an impression. None of them elicited my sympathy or even much interest. They are all quite shallow and I finished the book knowing very little about the heroine or her brother. I hope that Ms. Garretson's character development style will improve with the next book in the series because she certainly has some good ideas.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping historical thriller 29. November 2011
Von Kelly Andrews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Gripping mystery set amid the political turmoil of the waning days of the 19th century. Well-written with vivid characters, including the resourceful, fiercely independent young artist Clary, who is equally at home in the brilliant salons of Paris as she is roasting lizards over an open fire.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting setting 16. Juni 2016
Von Jonesy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I liked The Gargoyle in the Seine more than I expected to. All the worn out elements of a romance novel were present, but the characters and the situations were interesting enough to distract me through most of the book. The heroine-Clary-is an independent woman raised by an artist in the southwest of the United States. The family traveled extensively as her father looked for subjects to paint. As the story begins Clary is studying art in Paris. The descriptions of Paris feel real, although I have no idea if they are. To one who has lived there thirty years her description of her experiences in the American southwest feel like something out of a 1950's western movie. However I can overlook that and the typos and mistakes, such as a name change in mid scene. I enjoyed the lack of graphic sexual content and several of the characters were very interesting. Clary was a little too stubborn and over the top and the hero took an unjustified turn or two toward the end to maintain tension, but overall they were likeable and I will probably look for the next book in the series, if there is one. The mystery kept my attention. The discussion questions in the back of the book should have been left out and made me wonder if the book was aimed at a junior high audience. However, with workman like writing and a plot that is an equal amount of mystery and romance, I can recommend this book for anyone who enjoys that genre.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mystery in Victorian Paris 28. April 2012
Von Zabeth Marsh (book, tv and movie reviewer) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I just finished "The Gargoyle in the Seine" by Dee Garretson as my Crime/Mystery selection in my Eclectic Reader 2012 Challenge . I'm completing my reader challenge using only books from authors I follow on Twitter, and I have to say that I picked a great read for this category.
Garretson has created a strong heroine in Clary Ashton, a British art student who spent her childhood traveling the American west with her father and brother. This unique upbringing has provided Clary with confidence to take on the challenge of a fellow art student's murder.
Standing in Clary's way is Reese Tretheway, a British undercover spy in Paris trying to protect a visiting British royal. At each step in this mystery Reese tries to cover up the clues to this international espionage that includes Russian revolutionaries, impoverished British aristocrats, and botany.
Garretson weaves an amazing grasp for art, Parisian history, and chemistry in this mystery story. Readers will find inspiring Russian proverbs, tips for the Victorian lady's etiquette, and insights into art and music. Clary has that approachable American attitude, and Reese is the sophisticated, manly spy as sexy in a tuxedo as he is in a workman's clothing.
Without leaving gaps in this mystery story, Garretson has created a world with plenty of growth for Clary's and Reese's relationship that I look forward to learning about in future novels.
