I’m thrilled to be a part of Laura Pauling’s wonderful series Spies, Murder, and Mystery to help celebrate the release of her excellent debut novel, A SPY LIKE ME. When she asked me to do a post on the Paris Catacombs, I jumped at the chance.
Some of you may know about the storm drains of Las Vegas–an underground labyrinth of dark, dank flood channels doubling as housing for the city’s homeless population. The infamous tunnels play an important role in my debut novel INTO THE DARK. While the Vegas drains are terrifying, there are no scarier–or more fascinating–tunnels than the Catacombs of Paris. Spanning more than 180 miles, the catacombs date back to the twelfth century and are literally filled with the dead.
