About Remain in Light 
In 1968, Irène Laureux's husband was murdered during the Paris student and worker riots. Thirty years later, she is still on the hunt for the man who knows how and why Jean-Louis died – his secret lover, Frederick DuBois.
Aiding in her search is American expat Martin Paige, a writer still reeling from a love affair gone wrong with a student, David McLaren. Martin meets a young poet, Christian, and the two fall in love, but their happiness is shaken when Martin's friend, Diane Jacobs, arrives in Paris with news that David has gone missing.

While Irène and Martin track the elusive Frederick, Diane discovers that David's disappearance is more than just a missing persons case with connections to drugs, stolen identities and long-hidden government secrets. This literary mystery takes readers from America to London and into the dark underworld of the fabled City of Light.
