Product description

Review

'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.

Format: Hardcover
I've returned to the Monsieur Pamplemousse series time and time again, over the years, purely for the gentle nature of the stories and their comforting qualities. As with all long established series, it probably helps to start at the beginning if you're interested in seeing how the characters develop; that said, this could be read as a stand-alone.

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.

Michael Bond never fails in his story telling with his unique set of characters. There is Pamplemousse himself , a retired Surete officer, now a hotel guide inspector stiil with his sniffer dog Pommes Frites, the manipulative Directeur of the "Le Guide", and in this case the Directeur.s wife's Italian wayward niece who is said to be making a second visit to Paris and needs "minding" for the compelling reason that her father is an Italian Mafia boss.
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.

I've read all the books in this series... and I re-read them from time to time because I they are so entertaining and charming.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another adult Pamplemousse Adventure byu Michael Bond 9 Aug. 2015
By Mrs. Felicity M. Stanton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Another quality adventure by Michael Bond. A little heavy going and lacking the spontaneous charm of the earlier books. All the traditional characters reappear like the old favourites they are. Definitely not for children, adult material only.
