'A satisfyingly intriguing, wish-you-were-here read' Guardian

A body is found showing marks of Satanism. Bruno, chief of police must track down a murderer while quelling his town's superstitious fears in this charming mystery, part of an internationally bestselling series

It is springtime France's Périgord, a time of beauty and calm. But not for Bruno, chief of police of the small town of St Denis. A woman's body has been found on a boat, bearing signs of a black magic ritual.

Bruno has too much on his plate as it is - mediating a domestic abuse case that needs careful handling and a dodgy local development proposal that seems just too good to be true.

But a murder case must take precedent and the roots of this one lie buried deep in the past - linked to a chateau above a bend in the river, to the reclusive old woman who lives there, and to the secret hidden in the Devil's Cave.
