It’sbecome my experience that Martin Walker is one of those detective writers who’s work is very easy to enjoy. It features a small town cop set in the warm south of France the backdrop for his novels is very soothing indeed: it’s very small town and not at all big city. And his plots, this one in particular, are virtually Byzantine in their complexity —- enough so as to keep you scratching you head as you read. Very much to be recommended especially on gray, drizzle autumn day.

An accomplished writer and an engaging story with a continuous sense of intrigue. I look forward to the author's next novel featuring the clever Bruno set in captivating rural France.

If you love fine food, the “Continental” way of life, and are an unabashed oenophile, I highly recommend you try this series. For the rest of us, the sections devoted to wine making, wine tasting, and wine appreciation can get a little repetitive but don’t let that stop you. It’s still a fine story with a satisfying ending.

These books by Martin Walker, starring the gendarme Bruno, are a fun easy read with a bit of French flair to add to the mix.
