Looking forward to the rest of the series. Good solid start with interesting characters, contemporary issues (water shortage, GMO, etc.) and something to say about the human condition.

This mystery/crime novel is very evocative of France, french history and country life. But, it is not a cozy, gentle story. Drugs, sex, violent crime, war crimes and vengeance makes for quite the mix. This balanced out with artful descriptions of local food, markets, picnics, dinner parties, gardening and keeping chickens! Bruno is a busy, complex, and smart multi talented chief of police. But, I agree with a previous reviewer--the narrator ought to have given him a French voice--the British accent was a bit confusing. Worth a listen--but don't go into it looking for a warm and cozy mystery. In reality, it is a look into a dark aspect of France in WWII.
