When a British tourist fails to turn up for a luxurious cooking vacation in Bruno's usually idyllic Dordogne village of St. Denis, the worried hostess is quick to call on Bruno for help. Monica Felder is nowhere to be found, and her husband, a retired British major, is unreachable. And not long after Bruno discovers that Monica was traveling with a mysterious Irishman (her lover?), the two turn up dead. The Irishman's background in intelligence and his connection to Monica's husband only raise more questions for Bruno. Was she running away? How much does her husband really know? What's the real story behind a scandal buried in the threesome's military past?
Meanwhile, the star of the girls' rugby team, a favorite of Bruno's, is pregnant, putting at risk her chances of being named to the French national squad. Bruno's search for the truth in both cases leads him to places he hadn't intended to go - but, as ever, he and his friends take time to savor the natural delights of the Dordogne. Sante!

Best of the best
I've loved the whole Bruno series, which blends French atmosphere, food and European history with romance and the excitement of solving a crime. In this latest, Martin Walker brings old friends together again, who are made all the more familiar by Robert Ian MacKenzie's impeccable performance, and the pace never lags. Bookpage made this book a Top Pick in their June issue, and I hope more readers will give the Bruno, Chief of Police series a try.

Ian Mackenzie is Bruno!
Strange that a British accent could so persuasively convey Bruno, but Mackenzie gets everyone (except the American) pitch perfect. This story wasn’t quite as strong as previous books but luckily Isabel is still around and Bruno and his friends are still fine company.
