Commissaire Georges Dupin, a Parisian-born caffeine junkie recently relocated from the glamour of Paris to the remote (if picturesque) Breton coast, is not happy when he is dragged from his morning croissant and coffee to the scene of a curious murder. The local village of Pont-Aven - a sleepy community by the sea where everyone knows one other and nothing much seems to happen - is in shock. The legendary 91-year-old hotelier Pierre-Louis Pennec, owner of the Central Hotel, has been found dead.
I've given it 5 stars, so, obviously, I rank it highly among the audiobooks I've listened to
Ten miles off the coast of Brittany lie the fabled Glénan Islands. Boasting sparkling white sands and crystal-clear waters, they seem perfectly idyllic, until one day in May three bodies wash up on the shore. At first glance the deaths appear accidental, but as the identities of the victims come to light, cantankerous Commissaire Dupin is pulled back into action for a case of what seems to be cold-blooded murder.
