Aimee Leduc by Cara Black

I have just discovered a series of detective stories set in Paris, featuring Aimee Leduc and written by Cara Black. I've only read the first, Murder in the Marais, but I'm loving the detailed location descriptions and the feel of central Paris as well as the story itself which harks back to the German occupation and the deportations from the Marais, which was the old Jewish quarter.
I'm wondering if anyone has read any of the others? what you thought of them? and whether there are any other recommendations of Paris centred, modern detective stories (I've read all the Enzo McLeod and Maigret is not modern enough)
