Publisher's Summary

The seventh novel in Martin Walker's irresistible mystery series set in the South of France and starring Bruno, chief of police.
Bruno, chief of police in the French town of St. Denis, is already busy with a case when the body of an undercover French Muslim cop is found in the woods, a man who had called Bruno for help only hours earlier. But Bruno's sometime boss and rival, the Brigadier, doesn't see this investigation as a priority - there are bigger issues at stake. Bruno has other ideas.
Meanwhile a Muslim youth named Sami turns up at a French army base in Afghanistan hoping to get home to St. Denis. One of Bruno's old army comrades helps to smuggle Sami back to France, but the FBI aren't far behind. Then an American woman appears in St. Denis with a warrant for Sami's extradition. Bruno must unravel these multiple mysteries amid pressure from his bosses and find his own way to protect his town and its people.

Bruno in a different light

I hate to finish these books because I enjoy "living" in Bruno's world. This was no exception. (Although there was some confusion about different titles.)

Although not the interesting, local mystery we're used to having Bruno solve, this tale of terrorism and WWII history was wonderful. Bruno doesn't carry a gun in his normal line of duty but we see that change in a big way here. All the characters were there - some just in reference if not in person - and we learn more about them. This was a real page-turner and I couldn't put it down. The narration was quite good, as usual.

What is it with Bruno and his women??? :-)

Better and Better

One of the best series I've ever become immersed in. Entertaining, authentic French history, great characters, great suspense, realistic outcomes, great narration (you guys that don't like Ian McKenzie are not on this boat ,I think).
I've learned that bad wine is a travesty!!! The sequels slide easily together. I am searching for a Bruno in my own life!!!!
