Publisher's Summary

The Missing Corpse is internationally best-selling author Jean-Luc Bannalec's fourth novel in the Brittany Mystery series. It's picturesque, suspenseful, and the next best thing to a trip to Brittany.

Along the picturesque Belon River, home of the world famous oyster beds, between steep cliffs, ominous forests, and the Atlantic Ocean, a stubborn elderly film actress discovers a corpse. By the time Commissaire Dupin arrives at the scene, the body has disappeared. A little while later, he receives a phone call from the mystical hills of Monts d'Arree, where legends of fairies and the devil abound: Another unidentified body has turned up. Dupin quickly realizes this may be his most difficult and confounding case yet, with links to Celtic myths, a sand theft operation, and mysterious ancient druid cults.

Author paints pictures with words. I am learning how to pronounce many French words. I looked up that musical instrument the "bombard" and heard it played on Google. Such fun!

Oysters and Celts!

Brittany, law-enforcement, teamwork, murder-investigation, oyster-culture, Celtic-heritage-societies, translated, theft *****

As innovative as Sicilian Commissario Montalbano and as irreverent as Dr Siri Paiboun, that is Breton Commissario Georges Dupin. The murder mystery is diabolical and guaranteed to baffle the reader. The characters are all too realistic and the scenery is awe inspiring. Have I established that I loved it and that you can read the summary in the publisher's blurb or other reviews? Good. I live in Wisconsin and have no idea about things like raising oysters for marketing or the viruses they are susceptible to. Nor did I know that there is an international problem of the theft of sand for industrial purposes. And I admit to not being aware of current Transceltic cultural heritage societies beyond those whose forebears came from Scotland and Eire. Guess I must have been living in a box or something. But I do know a few things about working with law enforcement, enough to know how much the dedicated ones are alike regardless of national allegiance! Commissario Dupin is one of the finest and I'm very happy that this translation is now available in English!
