Overview

Recently widowed and inspired by a boyhood fascination with Sherlock Holmes, the middle-aged Inspector Gilles Maintenon of the Surete is on a walking vacation of Dartmoor when he stumbles upon death in mysterious circumstances.

When a plane crashes but the pilot has been dead just a little too long, Gilles becomes suspicious. When the woman he is falling in love with is brutally murdered, Gilles swears that he will never rest until the case is solved, the killer is caught, and justice is done. With a vein of dark humour running through it, the book deals with themes of loss, grief, remorse, and the unexpected consequences of the simplest choices. With one of the most original cave scenes in recent fiction, Louis Bertrand Shalako pulls out all the stops.

    A good old fashioned mystery. Easy writing style. The only criticism I would make is that the author frequently switches between the character's first and last name throughout the story. Since there are quite a few characters in this book and lots of twists and turns, it was a bit confusing at times. Other than this, I found the book interesting and plan to read more by this author. If you enjoy old time authors such as Agatha Christie, you will enjoy this book but if you expect a modern, high-tech story, this isn't for you. The setting takes place in the early part of the 1900's.
