Praise

“Enchanting.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Rich in atmosphere and personality, with characters bound by the tenacious strictures of history and memory. And almost without fail, everything stops for lunch. It’s impossible to read a Bruno novel without getting hungry and thirsty.” —The New York Times

“Fast-moving, totally engaging. . . . The joy of Mr. Walker’s Bruno series is the way the reader becomes immersed into [a] little-known corner of the world.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
The Templars’ Last Secret brings back [the] immensely appealing, sharp-witted Inspector Bruno. . . . Walker likes to mix rural France’s pleasures with surprising themes. . . . [But] none of this negates Bruno’s daily life—including his inability to resist good food.” —The Seattle Times

“Another feast for mystery and food lovers. . . . Walker’s Bruno, chief of police, mysteries are like the ideal European vacation: loaded with inspiring sights, good companions, and memorable meals (and there’s murder, too!). Spend time with Bruno, his dog, horses, friends, and farmhouse in the tiny village of St. Denis in the Périgord region of rural France, and you feel as if your own life has been enhanced. . . . [The Templars’ Last Secret] features a complicated but enjoyable plot, a rich knowledge of archaeology, and the reliable pleasures of Bruno’s region, including scenery, Bergerac wine, and knockout dining.” —Booklist (starred review)
 
“The ubiquitous atmosphere of the books is of undisguised affection for the towns, villages, their people, their wine and their food. . . . Its procurement, preparation and joyful consumption, is never more than a few pages away.” —Forbes
 
“Just the thing for readers hungry for a banquet of epicurean pleasures, ancient history, international terrorism, and holy matrimony.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Of all the police inspectors in all the precincts around the world, Bruno, chief of police of tiny St. Denis, France, is the one I would most like to hang out with. . . . It’s not often that a village police chief must match wits with Israel’s Mossad as well as splinter groups of radical Islamic terrorists. Still, Bruno takes it in stride—as he does everything, with a mixture of bumbling and panache, scarcely missing a beat.” —Bruce Tierney, BookPage
 
“A simmering stewpot of intrigue.” —The Fresno Bee
 
“Deftly plotted. . . . Fans will happily note Walker’s customary appreciation for local wines, food, and culture, and his bemused explanations of French bureaucracy.” —Publishers Weekly
