About the Author

MARTIN WALKER, after a long career of working in international journalism and for think tanks, now gardens, cooks, explores vineyards, writes and travels. His series of novels featuring Bruno, Chief of Police, are bestsellers in Europe and have been translated into more than fifteen languages. He divides his time between Washington, D.C., and the Dordogne.


"With Bruno around, all's right with the world." -The New York Times Book Review

"Walker's Bruno novels are good mysteries, but they're also travelogues and culinary experiences, history lessons and nature guides." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Unashamedly lavished with warmth. . . . The ubiquitous atmosphere of [Walker's] books is of undisguised affection for the towns, villages, their people, their wine and their food of the Dordogne." -Forbes

"Rich in atmosphere and personality. . . . It's impossible to read a Bruno novel without getting hungry and thirsty." -The New York Times

"Consistently excellent . . . I really want to know Bruno, to eat at his dinner table with his charming and entertaining guests, to play fetch with his basset hound, Balzac . . . I really want to be Bruno." -Bruce Tierney, BookPage (starred review)

"[A] deliciously food-and-wine-soaked world. . . . [With] a cast of characters guaranteed to charm." -Wine Spectator

"Bruno Courreges may be France's . . . answer to dapper . . . James Bond." -Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[A] charming French village, great food, eccentric characters, and a mystery to nudge things along. . . . Savory indeed." -The Seattle Times

"Falling-off-the-bone French at its ne plus ultra." -Kirkus Reviews

"[An] elegant series. . . . Francophiles will relish the evocative descriptions of the Perigord region and its cuisine. Distinctive characters complement the intricate mystery." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Highly satisfying." -The Boston Globe
