Overview

The Devil's Cave (Bruno, Chief of Police Series #5) by Martin Walker

Mystery, food, and wine in the French province of Dordogne—the latest offering from Martin Walker, featuring Benoît “Bruno” Courrèges.

It’s spring in St. Denis. The village choir is preparing for its Easter concert, the wildflowers are blooming, and among the lazy whorls of the river a dead woman is found floating in a boat. It’s another case for Bruno, the town’s cherished chief of police. With the discovery of sinister markings and black candles near the body, it seems to him that the occult might be involved. And as questions mount—regarding a troubling real estate proposal in the region; a suspicious, violent death made to look accidental; and the sudden reappearance of a politically controversial elderly countess—Bruno and his colleagues and friends are drawn ever closer to a climactic showdown in the Gouffre de Colombac: the place locals call the Devil’s Cave.

With the enchanting backdrop of France’s pastoral heartland, a cast of local characters as vibrant as their surroundings, enough sumptuous repasts to satisfy any literary gourmand, and a hero winningly capable of balancing the good life with a dogged dedication to solving the crimes that threaten it, The Devil’s Cave invites readers to raise a glass and turn the page.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this marvelous series by Martin Walker. Bruno is the consummate policeman in a small town in France who overcomes all the problems due to his quick mind and clever reasoning. The books are loaded with interesting characters and once in a while Bruno gets some "action." I would recommend these books to anyone.

Once again Mr Walker continues to peak my interest in Bruno's activities. His writing is on a par with Hemingway. Easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable. Makes we wish I could live in St. Denis and meet his wonderful characters.

Martin Walker's books about Bruno, a police chief in France just keep on getting better. The mystery is good, but the food and the country side, the people who are in each book are the best part of the books. You feel like you are there and know these people well or at least that you would like to be living there. Hope he writes a new one soon, these are the type of books you can reread and find something new in each book. Highly recommend them.

The Bruno Chief of Police novels are wonderful to read, with a caring, small town French cop who loves wine, great cooking, dogs, horses, kids and his community. Bruno uses a lot of compassionate common sense to solve crimes and the descriptions of the French countryside transport the reader to a beautifully warm place to stay.

As with the previous 4 Bruno books, this was was written, interesting, and fun to read. The description of the Dordogne location was accurate and the Bruno's kitchen preparations were mouth watering.
