A beloved village, a renowned family, a suspicious
deathâ€”itâ€™s the latest adventure in the Dordogne for
police chief Bruno.
When Bruno is invited to the
lavish birthday celebration of World War II flying ace and
national icon Marco â€śthe Patriarchâ€ť Desaix, itâ€™s the
fulfillment of a boyhood dream. But when the party ends in
the death of Gilbert, Marcoâ€™s longtime friend, itâ€™s another
day on the job for the chef de police. All signs
point to a tragic accident, but Bruno isnâ€™t so sure. There
is more to the Desaix familyâ€™s lives and loyalties than
meets the eye. There is Victor, the Patriarchâ€™s son,
Gilbertâ€™s old comrade-in-arms and sometime rival; Victorâ€™s
seductive wife, Madeleine, whose roving eye intrigues Bruno
even more than her fierce political ambitions; Yevgeny,
another son, an artist whose paintings seem to hold keys to
the past; and the Patriarch himself, whose postwar Soviet
ties may have intersected all too closely with Gilbertâ€™s
career in Cold War intelligence.
Bruno is diverted
by a dangerous conflict between a local animal rights
activist and outraged huntersâ€”as well as meals to
cook, wine to share, and an ever more complicated romantic
situation. But as his entanglement with the Desaix family
grows and his suspicions heighten, Brunoâ€™s inquiries into
Gilbertâ€™s life become a deadly threat to his own.
