Identify-this-novel-filter: Trying to find a book I read when I was younger. It had to do with Paris, spies, computers(?) and Africa. There was a lot of talk about the City of Light, it was set mainly in Paris. I could have sworn the title of the novel was 'City of Light' (which I'm pretty sure I'm wrong about) but I think it might be similar? The book opened with a code phrase being received from an agent in Africa that had something to do with 'blue', about an operation gone wrong. There was definitely mention of the Paris catacombs, and covert meetings in Paris cafes. Pretty sure the direct boss of the main character was a female spy/agent. Shot in the dark, I know, but the name is on the tip of my tongue -- just can't for the life of me figure it out.
