Product Details


“With Bruno in charge, there’s always time for one of those classic feasts that makes this series such a mouthwatering treat.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“In the deliciously food-and-wine-soaked world of his Bruno, Chief of Police mystery novels, Walker revels in the exemplary country cuisine of his adopted home . . . [and] a cast of characters guaranteed to charm.”  —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

“To-die-for atmospheric mysteries . . . Fans of the late Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series (where love of cooking infused each mystery) will find a new home with the Gourmand Bruno.” Booklist (starred review)

Romans policiers—detective novels—of a very high order: deftly plotted, gracefully written, with compelling characters and surprising twists at the end . . . They provide a vivid portrait of the French countryside, the beating heart of the French nation, in the new world of the 21st century.” —Michael Mandelbaum, The American Interest

A Taste for Vengeance is another delightful and entertaining entry in the Bruno, Chief of Police Series . . . the reader will have the vicarious delight of seeing a crime solved and becoming a gourmand in the process.” —Tony V. Sweeney, New York Journal of Books

“A Taste for Vengeance is full of action and suspense . . . Rich description of rural France and French cuisine is an added plus. It is highly recommended for those why love to read crime novels.” The Washington Book Review

“Reoccurring series characters add depth to the story and draw readers into the small, countryside community of St. Denis. Vivid descriptions of the Périgord region and French cooking are an added treat for Francophiles. Recommended for fans of the series as well as readers of Donna Leon. Louise Penny, and anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries set in foreign locales.” Library Journal
“Entertaining.” Publishers Weekly

“Walker’s latest is replete with incident, but like the frequent dinners his hero prepares for friends, paying guests, and the occasional visiting FBI agent, its abundance seems just one more testimony to the richness of the region.” Kirkus
