Bruno, Chief of Police
Meet Benoit Courreges, aka Bruno, a policeman in a small village in the South of France. He s a former soldier who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life. He has a gun but never wears it: he has the power to arrest but never uses it. But then the murder of an elderly North African who fought in the French army changes all that. Now Bruno must balance his beloved routines living in his restored shepherd s cottage, shopping at the local market, drinking wine, strolling the countryside with a politically delicate investigation. He s paired with a young policewoman from Paris and the two suspect anti-immigrant militants. As they learn more about the dead man s past, Bruno s suspicions turn toward a more complex motive.

'A wonderfully crafted novel as satisfying as a French pastry but with none of the guilt or calories.' Tuscon Citizen's Journal'
