Publisher Description

This installment in the delightful, internationally acclaimed series featuring Chief of Police Bruno will take all of Bruno's resolve and quick thinking to untangle a mystery that will reach its deadly denouement at the château of an aging rock star. But in true Bruno fashion, at least lunchtime is never in danger.

It’s summer in the Dordogne and the heirs of a modest sheep farmer learn that they have been disinherited. Their father’s estate has been sold to an insurance company in return for a policy that will place him in a five-star retirement home for the rest of his life. But the farmer dies before he can move in. Was it a natural death? Or was there foul play? Chief of Police Bruno Courrèges is soon on the case, embarking on an investigation that will lead him to several shadowy insurance companies owned by a Russian oligarch with a Cypriot passport.

The arrival of the oligarch’s daughter in the Périgord only further complicates one of Bruno’s toughest cases yet.

Bruno is getting tired

I profess to having loved every single book in the ongoing Bruno, chef de police, saga.
When reading this one i felt that it lacked, that it wasn’t inspired as much as the previous ones, pretty much just followed a worn out path. unlike its’ predecessors, the storyline was a bit convoluted and boring, not to say cliché... I wonder if a writers’ writing can suffer from concerns of schedules, deadlines and $$$’s.
I probably will re-read the older ones at some point but refrain from picking up another ‘new’ one.
