Praise

“A darn good mystery with an engaging main character. . . . A rare treat.” —The Lincoln Journal Star
 
“The delights of [Walker’s Dordogne]—from the chateaus along the rivers to the prehistoric cave paintings to the food on the tables—are very real. . . . Absorbing.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“A satisfying and surprisingly intimate tour through a modern French village, full of character and charm. . . . The Patriarch in many ways is comparable to vintage wine, a cuvee of disparate tastes, aromas, depths and colors . . . Santé. Drink up.” —The Arizona Republic 

Praise for Martin Walker’s Bruno, Chief of Police series 

“Sure to appeal to readers with a palate for mysteries with social nuance and understated charm.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“Tailor-made for fans of Peter Mayle, Colin Cotterill and Alexander McCall Smith.” —BookPage
 
“In Martin Walker’s delightful series . . . the charm of rural France is regularly disrupted—but not too much.” —The Seattle Times

“Walker treats readers to lavishly detailed accounts of meals served in farmhouse, restaurant, and at village fêtes, giving us cookbook-worthy accounts of ingredients, preparation, and wine pairings.” —Booklist (starred review)
 
Martin Walker’s Bruno novels are as delicious as the world class meals his chief of police whips up and as intoxicating as the wines he serves.” —Open Letters Monthly

“[Will] delight readers who relish a skillful blend of complex international political nuance and pastoral intrigue mixed with a soupçon of fine French wine and cuisine.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“As pleasant as a nice brunch.” —The Washington Independent Review of Books
