"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!"--… (més)

While I continue to enjoy St. Denis & Bruno, I found myself sighing while reading this 11th book in the series because once again Bruno has become embroiled in a case involving national & international agencies. It would be nice for him to have a purely local case once in a while! ( )

What a great book, and a wonderful addition to this enjoyable series! We see our beloved Bruno receiving a promotion, and with that promotion, a whole long list of new responsibilities, and new bosses, For those of us who know Bruno, we know how much he loves being a small town police chief. He knows everyone and everything in and around St. Denis. He still has lots of time to coach rugby, play tennis, ride his horse Hector and socialize with his friends. The new job begins to infringe on that a bit. And this time Bruno is dealing with IRA terrorists around the region. A particularly brutal crime scene is how this book begins. At first it looks like a murder-suicide, but it soon becomes apparent that it was a double murder. But there are also family rivalries at the heart of it. As there is with big money and inheritance, various family members are trying to ensure that they get the money and that others don't. Bruno, with the help of his friends and his dog Balzac, manages to stop the carnage and to save one of their own. This book is a solid addition to this wonderful series. And there is lots of lovely food and wine throughout to satisfy any foodie. ( )

Bruno steht vor einer ungewohnten Herausforderung: Er soll in Pamelas Kochschule Feriengästen lokale Geheimrezepte beibringen. Die Messer sind gewetzt, doch die prominenteste Kursteilnehmerin fehlt: die junge Frau eines britischen Geheimdienstoffiziers, die sich auf Empfehlung ihrer Familie im Périgord erholen wollte. Bruno spürt sie auf – in einem vermeintlichen Liebesnest, das jedoch bald zum Schauplatz eines Doppelmords wird.

Once again the politics bored me to tears... this time it was Iraq/Afghanistan missing millions & the IRA..... The inclusion of world politics & terrorists bores me to tears, but as I really enjoy the other parts of the book, I skip over a lot.

Bruno's friend Pamela has expanded her riding school to include week long cooking classes for adults/tourists who are interested in the local cuisine.

When one of the scheduled participants does not show up, it is found that she actually arrived 1 day earlier & went off with her lover, in whose shower she is found murdered. Her lover is found dead, hanging from a tree in his orchard.... A suicide note in his printer, but the computer wiped clean.

The side stories of Bruno's promotion, the local girl's rugby team, & its star player was very interesting; as of course was the food! ( )
