Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming! could be an alternate title for this third in Mayle’s Provence caper series. An uncouth Russian capitalist, Oleg Vronsky has a history of getting what he wants, which often requires those standing in his way disappearing in the process. But Vronsky can’t obtain what he wants most: the ocean villa of Francis Reboul, the refined billionaire who has figured in other Caper mysteries. Fortunately, Reboul’s friend Sam Levitt arrives for a visit just in time to set in motion his own investigation into Vronsky. What floats this novel are the bubbles from the champagne that always seems to be chilled and waiting, along with Mayle’s usual airy descriptions of French wines and meals. The caper is a little light on plot, and Mayle doesn’t brief new readers about Sam Levitt (a former lawyer, wine connoisseur, and sleuth). Also, for Mayle, the meal and scenery descriptions are fairly thin this time. Still, fans of the series will stick around for the ambience, even though much of it comes from Levitt’s girlfriend reading aloud from a guidebook. --Connie Fletcher

Review

“A light frolic of suspense….I…enjoyed every moment of an escape into the world of champagne for lunch and a snack of escargot and caviar.”
Suspense Magazine

“What floats in this novel are the bubbles from the champagne that always seems to be chilled and waiting, along with Mayle’s usual airy descriptions of French wines and meals.”
Booklist

“Readers who want to engage by proxy in the lives of Europe’s mega-wealthy will…appreciate this frothy bit of fun from bestseller Mayle.”
Publishers Weekly

“Richly descriptive…smooth as the most decadent dessert.”
Kirkus 

“A delightful confection.”
I Love a Mystery

“Cracking open The Corsican Caper…is the next best thing to being there….Bon appétit!”
