Overview

A culinary mystery to tease your literary taste buds. Monsieur Pamplemousse and his trusty dog, Pommes Frites are called into Le Guide’s offices early one morning and presented with a string of Leclercq’s plaintive conundrums – all relating to his mobster uncle-in-law. These include a letter about a juicy steak turned brisket, a dead restaurant owner, a giant truffle delivered by post and the imminent arrival of the vivacious Caterina to the Gare des Lyons. All of which Pamplemousse has been called upon to help. With all these seemingly random problems at hand, Pamplemousse attempts to unravel each in dilemma but it quickly proves impossible as they overlap and tangle at every turn – usually making him look the fool. However, it becomes apparent that there is much more sinister going on and it doesn’t seem to relate to Capa Nostra and Uncle Caputo at all.
