Summary
  • A pair of murders, a romance and rivals in pursuit of a long-lost vintage car of unfathomable value-Bruno, chief of police, is busy in another mystery set in the beautiful Dordogne At the annual fEte in St. Denis, Bruno's biggest worry is surviving as a last-minute replacement navigator in a car rally race. The contest and a classic-car parade are new to the festivities and draw a spate of outsiders with deep pockets, big-city egos and, in the case of a young Englishman, an intriguing story. It's the tale of a Bugatti Type 57C, lost somewhere in France during World War II. Among the most beautiful cars ever made, one of only four of its kind-Ralph Lauren owns one-it is worth millions and drives its pursuers mad with greed. In the midst of the festivities, a local scholar turns up dead and Bruno suspects unnatural causes. After a second death, there is mounting evidence that the events in St. Denis are linked to international crime. To make matters even more complicated, a family squabble over land brings to St. Denis a comely Parisienne who turns Bruno's head. As usual, Bruno's life offers its challenges-but there is always time for a good bottle and a home-cooked meal. From the Hardcover edition
  • When a local scholar turns up dead at St. Denis' annual rally and classic car parade, Bruno, chief of police, suspects foul play, especially when a family squabble and international crime are factored in, making the investigation even more challenging
