The seventh installment in the delightful, internationally acclaimed series featuring Chief of Police Bruno.

It's summer in St. Denis for chief of police Bruno Courr#65533;ges, and that means a new season of cases. This time there are three weighing on his mind. First, there's the evidence that a veteran of the French Resistance is connected to a notorious train robbery; then, the burglary of a former British spymaster's estate; and, finally, the murder of an antiques dealer whose lover is conveniently on the lam.

As Bruno investigates, it becomes clear that they are connected--however, figuring out how will take every skill he possesses. Add in juggling the complex affections of two powerful women, maneuvering village politics, and managing his irrepressible puppy, Balzac, and Bruno has his hands full once again.

Wondering if anyone else out there is getting annoyed at Bruno's menus and wine pairings which always seem to interrupt the flow of the story. The soap opera with Pamela and Izabelle is also becoming a little much.

Though I've enjoyed all the "Bruno" books by Walker, this is my favorite. The plot keeps getting more complex, yet Walker ties it together by his constantly surprising old and new characters. They seem so real to me, and he makes the Dordogne area of southwestern France breathe as much as one of the characters.

Another excellent addition to the BRUNO, CHIEF of POLICE series. After the little detour of the last book, THE DEVIL'S CAVE, we're back on solid ground with the wonderful (and strange) citizens of St Denis; fabulous descriptions of food, community, and the area; lessons in French history; and the triumphs and heartbreaks of our main character. Fantastic for fans of Hamish Macbeth who might like a little less humor, or fans of Louise Penny.

This series is outstanding--great characters, great plots, and a wonderful setting! These books make you feel like you are right there in St. Denis. The descriptions of food and wine are also delightful! The Resistance Man is excellent, but this series is best read (and savored) in order. Enjoy!!
