Praise For…

“Atmospheric and engaging . . . it chills and thrills in equal measure.” —Susan Elia MacNeal, New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie Hope series

"Visit occupied Paris in Die Around Sundown, a darkly comic mystery with a sharp eyed and sharp mouthed police detective . . . with a French flair into little known facets of history. A tale with twists and heart." —Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author of the Aimée Leduc series

"In this riveting new series set during WWII, French detective Henri Lefort struggles with the German occupants of his beloved Paris, as well as his own dark experiences in the trenches during the last war. Saddled with the murder investigation of a German officer, Lefort bumps up against his desire to do what’s right—and some of Paris’s most famous occupants. A love letter to the City of Light, Pryor deftly evokes the tensions of the time, and crafts resilient characters that readers will come back to time and again." —Erica Ruth Neubauer, author of the Jane Wunderly mystery series

"Parisian detective Henri Lefort hunts for a killer while maintaining a precarious balancing act with Nazi occupiers in this gripping and tightly-plotted mystery.

Everything about this book is compelling; you won’t want to put it down!" —Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries and the Electra McDonnell series

"Mark Pryor’s Die Around Sundown is a wonderfully historic and a masterful mystery with the entire deck on the table, the wild card being that if Detective Henri Lefort doesn’t solve the case of the murdered Nazi in his occupied and beloved Paris—he’s a dead man." -Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire series
