Product Details


“Rich in atmosphere and personality…. It’s impossible to read a Bruno novel without getting hungry and thirsty.”The New York Times

“Walker really shines in portraying the Dordogne—and Bruno’s idyllic life there…. New readers to the series can comfortably start here—Walker has the rare ability in a series writer of orienting old and new readers alike. A feast.”Booklist (starred review)

“While I am an avid fan of one-sitting, page-turner books…I am also quite taken with books that force me to pause every few pages or so to savor and reflect a bit before continuing—to enjoy a deft turn of phrase or imagine the smells and sounds of the locale. Martin Walker’s books fall squarely into the latter category, and his latest, The Coldest Case, is a prime example.”—BookPage (starred review)

“Packed with descriptions of the food Courrèges and his friends cook, of the gorgeous French countryside and of the local community, this book is pure escapism…. It is a delight to dip into [Bruno’s] sun-baked world.”The Observer (London)

“Bruno Courrèges has a life the rest of us can only dream about…. Walker weaves an exciting story against a backdrop of bucolic bliss.”Daily Mail (London)

“Three different elements need to be addressed in Martin Walker’s latest novel. First, the quality of writing, which is quite simply super. Second, the story, which in and of itself is enough to elevate this to the top echelon of police crime dramas. But the unexpected bonus is the culinary descriptions. They add a unique spice to the story, as they form a beautiful bond with the region, the people, and the art of good cooking. Highly recommended.”—Davis Bunn
