This review is from: Death in Bordeaux (Kindle Edition)
A really good, proper novel, this.
At an almost pedantically precise moment in time and space (France, 1940), Massie's detective is the sort of fully-realised character one would expect from this excellent novelist.
The plot, while engaging enough, is not the reason why I'll be looking out for the rest of this projected trilogy: I find the period fascinating, and I feel I've learnt more from this great work of historical fiction than from any number of lesser authorities from the non-fiction department.
