Publisher's Summary

Martin Walker’s novels starring Chief of Police Bruno Courrèges are a boon to Francophiles and mystery lovers around the world. In The Crowded Grave, Bruno is up to his ears in trouble after a local archaeological dig unearths a corpse with a bullet in its head. Further complicating matters are a meddlesome local magistrate, animal rights activists, and a missing professor - not to mention two lovely ladies vying for Bruno’s affections.

Bruno's world has captured me in its orbit.

If you could sum up The Crowded Grave in three words, what would they be?

Absorbing, intriguing, enchanting

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

The plot developed slowly but each facet of the story was woven into a denouement both exciting and surprising.

What does Robert Ian Mackenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Wonderful voice beautifully varied for each character and his French is impeccable.

engaging

If you could sum up The Crowded Grave in three words, what would they be?

Riveting, action-filled, surprise-endings

Who was your favorite character and why?

You get a deeper look into Bruno's ex-lover Isabel and her dreams and struggles in this novel.

What does Robert Ian Mackenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mackenzie reads with a very calming cadence and beautiful French pronunciation.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are some sacrifices in this story that actually made me tear up.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint about this and the other Martin Walker novel I have read is that they have spoilers in them for earlier stories so if you have any intention of reading those, you are going to want to do it in order.
