'Not a page passes without a well-earned chuckle, a guffaw, or a fit of the giggles - a tribute indeed to Michael Bond, a cordon bleu master of the incongruous'. Strand Magazine 'Sure to please ... Absolutely hilarious' Good Book Guide 'An engaging mix of farce, detection and fine cuisine' The Times 'A delightful French frolic of a detective story' The Scotsman 'Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful dog Pommes Frites are true and original comic inventions' The Guardian 'A delicious caper featuring haute cuisine and dastardly doings in Paris, this is a lively, funny mystery.' Good Book Guide 'A delightful cross between whimsy and French farce ... The books have charm in abundance, sharp characterisation and gentle wit' Crime Review --.
About the Author
MICHAEL BOND was born in Newbury in 1926. In 1958, his first children's book, A Bear Called Paddington was published; many more were to follow and the bear became a star. In 1983 he started writing adult fiction, with the first tale to feature Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites.

MP is a food critic for Le Guide and at the request of his boss, Leclercq, he becomes involved in an intrigue concerning a dead restaurant owner, a huge truffle and a letter about a steak!
I have to admit that I didn't enjoy this instalment as much as some of the others I've read but it did pass a few pleasant hours.
Naturally Monsiuer le Directeur looks to Pamplemousse to oversee the trip.. If someoneLlike me - a confirmed Francophobe with no interest in food othe rthan to eat it to surivive - enjoys this enchanting and unique set of characters, not to mention plot, (99.9% of would be readers) should not hesitate to buy it.
