Publisher's Summary

When an old man is found viciously murdered, a swastika carved in his chest, the obvious conclusion is that this killing must be racist. Suspicion falls on the son of the local doctor, found in flagrant playing sex games surrounded by Nazi paraphernalia.

Got to love Bruno

What made the experience of listening to Bruno, Chief Of Police the most enjoyable?

I love the French town setting and the characters of the town.<br/>The way that Bruno manipulates subtly the characters in the best interest if the town.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plots of his books are gentle and cleaver,not fast moving ,but interesting<br/>The food inclusions and Bruno's fascination for cheeses ,truffles and his prowess in the kitchen makes interesting listening and the taste buds water.<br/> <br/>

Any additional comments?

I have listened to three books but not in sequence , wish I had listened in order but still I Enjoyed the book

Mediocre

Bit disappointed in this as I really enjoyed Devils Cave. The story was not so gripping and the narrator did not hold me. Am not sure if I will listen to anymore but may try if different narrator.

Bruno - one of the best detectives :)

Clever, entertaining and leaves you constantly wanting to listen. After driving home from work, I sat in my drive way because I so eager to find out what happened! Well worth a listen and Ric Jerrom's voice works really well :)

Badly let down by narration.

What would have made Bruno, Chief Of Police better?

A different narrator! The narrator trivialized the character by gratuitously 'chuckling' Bruno's comments.

What did you like best about this story?

This was an interesting story, with a sense of place, history, and close community. Bruno is an integral part of the community, and his role as a policeman reflects a deep respect for justice in context. <br/>In this first book (of the series) Martin Walker perhaps overpdraws Bruno's heroic 'good guy' qualities, but the character gains depth in subsequent books.
