Commissaire Georges Dupin, a cantankerous, Parisian-born
caffeine junkie recently relocated from the glamour of Paris
to the remote (if picturesque) Breton coast, is dragged from
his morning croissant and coffee to the scene of a curious
murder. The local village of Pont-Aven―a sleepy community by
the sea where everyone knows one other and nothing much
seems to happen―is in shock. The legendary
ninety-one-year-old hotelier Pierre-Louis Pennec, owner of
the Central Hotel, has been found dead.
A picture-perfect seaside village that played host to Gaugin
in the nineteenth century, Pont-Aven is at the height of its
tourist season and is immediately thrown into uproar. As
Dupin delves into the lives of the victim and the suspects,
he uncovers a web of secrecy and silence that belies the
village's quaint image.
A delectable read, Jean-Luc Bannalec's Death in Brittany
transports readers to the French coast, where you can
practically smell the sea air and taste the perfectly cooked
steak frites in an expertly crafted, page-turning mystery
for fans of Martin Walker.
