A missing woman, a shocking pregnancy, a dash of international intrigue, and a bottle or two of good Bergerac: it's another case for Bruno, Chief of Police. When a British tourist fails to turn up for a luxurious cooking vacation in Bruno's usually idyllic Dordogne village of St. Denis, the worried hostess is quick to call on Bruno for help. Monica Felder is nowhere to be found, and her husband, a retired British major, is unreachable. And not long after Bruno discovers that Monica was traveling with a mysterious Irishman (her lover?), the two turn up dead. The Irishman's background in intelligence and his connection to Monica's husband only raise more questions for Bruno. Was she running away? How much does her husband really know? What's the real story behind a scandal buried in the threesome's military past? Meanwhile, the star of the girls' rugby team, a favorite of Bruno's, is pregnant, putting at risk her chances of being named to the French national squad. Bruno's search for the truth in both cases leads him to places he hadn't intended to go-but, as ever, he and his friends take time to savor the natural delights of the Dordogne. Sante!

"Robert Ian Mackenzie's mellow delivery of the latest Bruno, Chief of Police, novel is perfect for the relaxed southern French policeman who cooks, romances, rides, hunts, and reads philosophy, in addition to catching criminals. In this case, Bruno investigates a tourist who fails to show up at a cooking school, only to stumble on a case of terrorism and revenge. As the series' longtime narrator, Mackenzie reliably delivers the varying personalities of the regular characters. In this case, he also excels with a range of Irish accents and some colorful Americans. His French pronunciation is careful. And his reading of Bruno's many meals positively loving. Feel free to savor the results with a glass of chilled white to hand. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
