The Handbag's Tale The Handbag's Tale is a highly-stylized murder mystery. Readers will enjoy a rich vein of dark and sardonic humour. Nana the Snake Dancer, poets, painters, proprietors of bawdy houses, inept burglars, and Inspector Gilles Maintenon make an unforgettable tale of a classic time and place: It's Paris, 1924, at the height of party season.
The short story that inspired the series. Look for 'Redemption: an Inspector Gilles Maintenon' mystery, as well as 'The Art of Murder,' and 'Blessed Are the Humble,' available at many fine online retailers.,
