Yes, it's unlikely that a small town in the Dordogne has quite as much deadly crime as St Denis, but they are good stories. Bruno is a very sympathetic character (though I do wish he would get his love life sorted out), and other characters are interesting and well drawn. The people and places ring true from the time I spent in the neighbouring department of Charente.
The implausibility of the storyline is compensated for by attention given to the details of milieu Perigord. One is amused by the characters and empathises with the hero. The goodies win and the baddies get theirs There is a hint if controversy and tragedy but not enough to spoil the feel good factor. One to read on the plane .
BOOK: Possibly the most complex of the Bruno novels to-date, and somehow (consequently?) less charming. Nevertheless, locations (less so) food (more so) and characters all behave as you would hope.. Overall an excellent read.
