Publisher's Summary

International Dagger Award short-listed author of The Murderer in Ruins, Cay Rademacher, delivers a beautifully atmospheric new story with a captivating main character in Murderous Mistral: A Provence Mystery.
Capitaine Roger Blanc, an investigator with the anticorruption unit of the French Gendarmerie, was a bit too successful in his investigations. He finds himself removed from Paris to the South of France, far away from political power. Or so it would seem.
The stress is too much for his marriage, and he attempts to manage the breakup while trying to settle into his new life in Provence in a 200-year-old half-ruined house. At the same time, Blanc is tasked with his first murder case: A man with no friends and a lot of enemies, an outsider, was found shot and burned. When a second man dies under suspicious circumstances in the quaint French countryside, the capitaine from Paris has to dig deep into the hidden, dark undersides of the Provence he never expected to see.

Good police procedural

I thought there would be humor. If there was I missed it. The characters are good and the plot is good. Enough clues for the listener to realize where the story is pointing but not how it gets there.
