Description

‘WITH BRUNO IN CHARGE THERE’S ALWAYS TIME FOR ONE OF THOSE CLASSIC FEASTS THAT MAKE THIS SERIES SUCH A MOUTH-WATERING TREAT’ New York Times Book Review

In this eleventh addition to a beguiling and bestselling series, Bruno wonders which he’s most afraid of – a death squad loose in the woods or teaching a cookery class to the tourists who flock to his beloved Dordogne

Bruno, now Chief of Police for the whole Vezere valley, has an unusual challenge to rise to: teaching at his friend Pamela’s new cookery school. It is a daunting prospect – the disappearance of one of the school’s pupils almost serves as a welcome distraction.

When the woman’s body is discovered in one half of a double homicide, the evidence points to something far out of the ordinary. The other murder victim is a man, covered in combat scars and with a false passport. Investigations reveal a list of enemies as long as Bruno’s arm. Any one of them would have had good reason to kill him – but which group managed it? And how did they find him?

As more of their mystery man’s previous life is revealed, Bruno realizes that there may be more intended victims in the vicinity. Now he must conduct the biggest manhunt in St Denis’ history to find the killers before they strike again.
