“The small towns where Martin Walker sets his enchanting country mysteries embody the sublime physical beauty and intractable political problems of the Dordogne region of France.” –The New York Times Book Review
“In Martin Walker’s delightful series about Bruno, chief of police in a small Dordogne village, the charm of rural France is regularly disrupted—but not too much.” –Adam Woog, The Seattle Times
“A lighthearted celebration of the Périgord region of France . . . [with a] prevailing atmosphere of dappled sunlight and good food and wine and friends. A pleasure for Francophiles, oenophiles, and the palate.” —Booklist
“Another delicious romp through a French menu garnished with politics.”
“Appealing . . . Walker hits the sweet spot of balancing humor and drama, and his food descriptions will leave readers fantasizing about dining in the Périgord.” —Publishers Weekly
