Another winner about Bruno, chief of police. Although each of these books is very well written and extremely interesting, I have a comment - each of Mr. Walker's books that i have read has its roots in the past - the Algerian war or WWII. I am in awe of Mr. Walker's research abilities and really appreciate learning about history of which I was ignorant, I wonder if any of his books have their basis in the present. This is NOT a complaint, merely an observation. Anyway, I really enjoyed this entry into the Bruno Courreges series - Bruno is an exceptional person and a great policeman who has terrific skills and an intuitive investigative style that leads to solutions of his town's mysteries. He seems to be beloved and respected by all his contemporaries. I would sure love to live in his town and be one of his friends. I will be VERY sad when I have read all the books in this series.
