Publisher Description

The Killing Tide by Jean-Luc Bannalec is the fifth novel in the internationally bestselling Commissaire Dupin series.

Deep sea fishers, dolphin researchers, smugglers, and an island shrouded in myth in the middle of the rough Atlantic ocean: Commissaire Dupin had sworn he would never again investigate on the ocean, but his fifth case takes him offshore, off the west coast of Brittany on a beautifully sunny day in June. He lands on the unique Île de Sein, populated by more rabbits than people, where the hairdresser arrives by boat and which was formerly inhabited by powerful witches and even the devil himself. In front of this impressive backdrop—between the islands of Molène, Ouessant, and the bay of Douarnenez—Dupin and his team follow a puzzling case that pushes them to their very limits.

Fantastic. I feel utterly transported. Beautiful scenery, fabulous characters. I am constantly google mapping all the places mentioned. These books are a reading vacation!

The Killing Tide

I found The Killing Tide to be tedious, plodding, and with an inconclusive and unsatisfying ending. The latter is a death knell for me. This book was not nearly as good as his Granite Coast Murders. Non-existent character development. No dramatic tension. No excitement or suspense. Nor did the title have any relation to the story. I give it three stars, and not less only because of the author’s good mastery of the language and imagery.

The Killing Tide

I am a huge fan of Commissaire Dupin. This story is excellent with the requisite dose of Breton atmosphere. I only gave it 3 stars because the English grammar was atrocious. There were so many grammatical errors, even a phrase transposed from one sentence to the next, that it diminished my enjoyment of the book. Between a translator, editor and proof readers these things shouldn’t have happened. I hope someone at the publishing house takes note of this review. Shame on them.
