Synopsis

1927: As the cultural center of the world, Paris is packed with painters, poets, and musicians as well as pleasure seekers. American Anne Johnson has come to Paris, but why? Is she running from something? Her father sends Michael Temple to bring her home. Temple follows her through the neighborhoods of Paris, rubbing shoulders with both the famous and the infamous. But as the summer of 1927 draws to a close, Anne has become an enigma. 1989: Temple may be old and infirm, but he still has his wits about him. He happens across information that suggests he may yet be able to unravel the mysteries from that long ago summer. He returns to Paris, only to find more than he bargained for. Temple has a plan that just might transform weakness to a semblance of justice. But will he be around for the finish? Lost among the Dead and Dying is both a prequel and sequel to Chasing Dietrich, Mears's first Michael Temple mystery. Chasing Dietrich was named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012.
