4.0 out of 5 stars Cricket, food and mystery in Cannes 28 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my favourite of Amy Myers' delightful mystery series featuring Auguste Didier, the French chef who just wants to be left in peace to get on with the cooking, but keeps getting involved in murders. In this episode, he is on holiday in his native Cannes, but soon finds himself catering for a very grand party featuring a Russian Grand Duke and the Prince of Wales. A cricket match is being played between the Gentlemen (the English, of course) and the Players (the rest of the world) and some valuable Faberge eggs are going missing, so it is not surprising in this explosive atmosphere when a murder occurs. Luckily Auguste's old friend Inspector Rose of Scotland Yard is soon on hand to solve the mystery and enjoy Auguste's cooking once again. This is a highly enjoyable mystery with lots of humour, and the atmosphere of Provence is vividly evoked. Great fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars At last! A classic whodunnit! 7 Mar 2011
By Michael Edward Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Finally! I have been searching for ages for a modern mystery writer who does classic whodunnits in the style of Agatha Christie. They're hard to come by, for sure. Too many mystery authors are too busy writing about themselves, their cat and their gardenias to actually bother to make their mysteries interesting any more. By the time you get through all the sub-plots with the local eccentrics and the staff of the would-be sleuth's tea shop, the murder is almost incidental.

Myers creates a grand whodunnit with larger than life characters, more than a dash of wit, and sub-plots that swirl around the murder and muddy the waters, instead of pushing the crime completely out of the novel. Throw in a couple of very satisfying twists at the end, and you have a classic mystery a la Christie, yet completely and wholly original. Yay!
