"Bruno Courrèges, chef de police in the French country town of St Denis, is busy with one case when another, far more serious, pops up. The mutliated body of an undercover French cop is found in the woods, a man who'd phoned Bruno for help only hours before. But Bruno's sometime boss, the Brigadier, doesn't see this investigation as priority. There are bigger issues at stake. Meanwhile, a Muslim youth named Sami turns up at a French army base in Afghanistan hoping to get home to St Denis. An old army comrade of Bruno's helps to smuggle Sami back to France, but the FBI aren't far behind him. Then an American woman appears in St Denis with a warrant for Sami's extradition. Bruno must unravel these multiple mysteries, amidst pressure from his bosses, and find his own way to protect his town, its people, and himself"--Jacket.

This book and series are thoroughly satisfying reads. It is obvious that Martin Walker loves the Dordogne and the people that live there...their history, their culture, their lives. He has taken the time to research issues that are important to those who live in the Dordogne region of southern south-central France and I can tell from having personally visited the area of which he writes...he has nailed it.

This is one of Bruno's best. An interesting and very contemporary case and the usual great characters. I recommend that you read this series from the start as there is much character development over the series.
