Excellent narration and very interesting plot
When Bruno and the mayor plan a demonstration.
Yes, and although this is excellent it is not Mackenzie at his absolute best. His accent for the character of Carlos does not serve well.
Yes...to catch the little inuendos/
Yes but could not
Exceptional..want to go back to. France. Makes me wondertoo if marten is really the gifted a mccall smith as writing integrity is so similar
This is a fantastic series. I simply adore Bruno. I hope he gets his love life in order soon, though. :-)
The story is unique - combining Basque terrorists, foie gras, love of animals, French countryside, and fabulous meals. Simply amazing!
The narration was spot-on. I need the next book now. That ending was a little too blunt.
