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.

The second book in the Bruno, Chief of Police Investigation series. READ BOOK 3

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.
