Summary

In this latest mouthwatering mystery starring country policeman Bruno, the body of a woman is found outside a cave beneath the ruined Templar chateau of Commarque in the heart of the Dordogne. She died of a broken neck. An accidental fall, or was she pushed? The victim carries no identification, and her fingerprints are not known to the French police or Interpol. The only clue to the woman's identity is that her dentistry looks American, but Bruno's inquiries at local hotels and gites yield no trace of a missing foreign woman.

The chateau of Commarque, begun in the 11th century, was founded by a Bishop of Sarlat and entrusted to the Knights Templar. In the rocks beneath it are caves. It is one of the few Templar sites in France that has never been associated with the fabled hidden treasure of the Templars - never until now, when a local journalist publishes a sensational story around the unknown woman's death, and a centuries-old mystery looks like it might finally be solved....

Poor not normal standard.

Poor, very disappointing. I have loved all of these books. I found description of characters 'flowery ' and the story line too incredible for words. I will not read another book in this series , I will keep my good memories of the other 9 books which I really did enjoy and recommend to everyone.

Contemporary


Contemporary journalistic insights but the smooth narration didn't match the grittier audible interpretation I needed.

Good story well told

A beautifully fashioned story, allowing time to describe the gastronomical culture of the French. Well crafted characters and relationships provide a strong framework for the plot to slowly unfold, culminating in a satisfactory ending.
