"The seventh novel in Martin Walker's irresistible mystery series set in the South of France and starring Bruno, Chief of Police Bruno, chief of police in the French town of St. Denis, is already busy with a case when the body of an undercover French Muslim cop is found in the woods, a man who called Bruno for help only hours earlier. But Bruno's sometime boss and rival, the Brigadier, doesn't see this investigation as a priority-there are bigger issues at stake. Bruno has other ideas. Meanwhile, a Muslim youth named Sami turns up at a French army base in Afghanistan hoping to get home to St. Denis. One of Bruno's old army comrades helps to smuggle Sami back to France, but the FBI aren't far behind. Then an American woman appears in St. Denis with a warrant for Sami's extradition. Bruno must unravel these multiple mysteries, amidst pressure from his bosses, and find his own way to protect his town and its people. "

  • “Thoughtful…but Bruno still has time to savor food, wine, and his attraction to an FBI liaison.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “A solid mystery, with the ever-fascinating character of Bruno at the helm.”

    - Booklist
  • “[A] heady mix….As prescient as it is terrifying.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “At the drop of a beret, Saint-Denis takes reluctant center stage in the war on terrorism. Nicely crafted with sensitivity and humor.”

    - BookPage
  • “Robert Ian Mackenzie’s understated performance fits this seventh entry in the series featuring Bruno Courreges…Mackenzie’s narration is unobtrusive but not dull. He captures Bruno’s steadiness and decency and does a fine job with the other characters, of both genders and various nationalities. Mackenzie is generally content to let his characters speak with an English accent, no matter where they’re from. There are too many countries represented here to do otherwise as constantly shifting accents would be a distraction.”
