"Bruno, the beloved chief of police of the idyllic French town of St. Denis in the Dordogne, is back! This time a mysterious death brings ancient secrets to light, and it's up to our hero--and favorite gourmand--to connect the tangled threads of past and present When a woman's body is found at the foot of a cliff near St. Denis, Bruno suspects a connection to the great ruined Château de Commarque, a long-ago Knights Templar stronghold that stands on the cliff above, and which, along with the labyrinth of prehistoric caves beneath it, continues to draw the interest of scholars. With the help of Amelie, a young Haitian newcomer to the Dordogne, Bruno learns that the dead woman was an archaeologist searching for a religious artifact of incredible importance, the discovery of which could have dramatic repercussions throughout the Middle East--not to mention in St. Denis. And the woman's ties to Islamic terrorists can only heighten the pressure on Bruno to unravel the centuries-old mystery. Meanwhile, an old flame of Bruno's is assigned to work with him on the case, and the two find time, naturellement, to enjoy the supreme pleasures of the wine, food, and beauty of the Dordogne"--… (més)

Bruno, der Polizeichef des idyllischen französischen Städtchens St. Denis in der Dordogne, ist zurück! Diesmal bringt ein mysteriöser Tod uralte Geheimnisse ans Licht, und es liegt an unserem Helden - und Lieblingskürbis -, die verworrenen Fäden von Vergangenheit und Gegenwart miteinander zu verbinden.
Wenn die Leiche einer Frau am Fuße einer Klippe in der Nähe von St. Denis gefunden wird. Denis gefunden wird, vermutet Bruno eine Verbindung zu der großen Ruine des Château de Commarque, einer lange zurückliegenden Festung der Tempelritter, die auf der Klippe darüber steht und die zusammen mit dem Labyrinth der prähistorischen Höhlen darunter weiterhin das Interesse der Gelehrten auf sich zieht. Mit Hilfe von Amélie, einer jungen haitianischen Neuankömmlingin in der Dordogne, erfährt Bruno, dass die tote Frau eine Archäologin war, die auf der Suche nach einem religiösen Artefakt von unglaublicher Bedeutung war, dessen Entdeckung dramatische Auswirkungen auf den gesamten Nahen Osten haben könnte - ganz zu schweigen von St. Denis. Und die Verbindungen der Frau zu islamischen Terroristen können den Druck auf Bruno nur noch erhöhen, das jahrhundertealte Geheimnis zu lüften. In der Zwischenzeit wird eine alte Flamme von Bruno beauftragt, mit ihm an dem Fall zu arbeiten, und die beiden finden Zeit, naturellement, die höchsten Freuden des Weins, des Essens und der Schönheit der Dordogne zu genießen.

One star off for violence & world politics: I like Bruno & the people who have become his family, I like the plot idea, however, I find that the more of this series that I read, the more the author digs into politics & war, so I have learned to skip over the parts I'm not interested in.

The Templar's castle near the Lascaux cave has been subject to much speculation & investigation by treasure hunters. When the body of a woman is found at the base of the castle wall with fresh graffiti the question of the Templar's treasure once again comes to light.

Also comes a question of the graffiti and its meaning: a heavy & dangerous statement to the origins of Jerusalem; Jewish, Muslim, Christian & the rights that go along with the origins.

ISIS is involved, Muslims, torture, Israeli spies..... Such a long boring drag, that even Bruno's cooking couldn't save the story! ( )

This book was as entertaining as all the others in this wonderful series. And, as in other books in this series, there is a lot of history brought to light. In this case the 12 century when the Templars and the King of France were at odds and many found their way to various spots in the Dordogne. When a woman falls to her death from one of the high cliffs, it opens up a whole new can of worms for Bruno and his cohorts. I would have to admit that this book is a little more violent than the others in this series, but the story is a good one, and Walker keeps the tension up throughout. It's springtime in St. Denis, and with the new leaves on the trees and the spring flowers blooming, Bruno is getting ready to tend his garden and exercise his horse Hector, and his dog Balzac when a terrorist threat seems imminent in his beloved countryside. I love how laid back Bruno becomes commando Bruno when danger threatens. He will stop at nothing to keep his town and his friends safe. As usual, there's lots of food and wine. These books are an epicure's delight. What's better than good food, good wine, good friends and murder? ( )

The cover image and the tag line, "A Mystery of the French Countryside," do not match the contents: thriller-type mayhem, terrorism, violence, and not a mystery at all. Just guns and testosterone. Ugh. ( )
