This series just gets better and better

I always learn something from these books, whether it's a great recipe, information about the French judicial system, or the history of the French resistance in World War II. The characters are engaging and growing deeper all the time. My only caveat is that I'm not crazy about the way the narrator does women's voices. He's handicapped – he's a man. It's not enough to keep me from listening to the next book, but I wish he would be a little less arch in his delivery. Otherwise, and altogether great read/listen.

Best I’ve read

Bruno books are absolutely the best I have ever read/listened to. The incredibly humaneness of Bruno and the enlarging cast of characters, the complexity of emotions, (not to mention the splendid food) make this the finest, deepest felt, satisfying—yet hungry—books I have read.

Work on American accent

I love the Bruno books. And the narration is generally excellent. However, I recommend that Mackenzie work on his American accent - at least that’s what I think it was supposed to be for the character of Jacqueline. That didn’t sound like any American I ever heard. Much too precise for us Yanks, and seemed to lean Scottish . 😊

Too many Too much

Easy to get lost in. Too many minor characters without adequate development. Too many story lines, many left undone. Too many women Bruno attracted to. Needed a better editing job.

High Hopes but Let Down

I have listened to Bruno mysteries before and I enjoy a complicated plot - when it is justified Sadly, this Bruno mystery uses too many unnecessary complications, seemingly to pad the story. Everything moves very slowly. Also, too many dinners described and too many bottles of wine poured Too many possible lovers for Bruno
Finally, the narrator reads too slowly, too little drama in his voice

Not my favorite Bruno storyline

I found this story so hard to get into, the names confusing, did not enjoy it.

Captivating to the end

If you're a Bruno fan, there is a big revelation in this story. This has an exciting storyline and interesting plot.

These keep getting better

Vichy money, French resistance fighters, amazing food, and Bruno. What a great book!

I love the fact that Martin Walker is not afraid to address current issues. It makes it more interesting to see how these issues are handled in a small French town by its Chief of Police. I just love Bruno! And Bruno loves strong, successful women. I wish he'd pick one! :-) But where's the fun in that?

This is another wonderful book in this series that I hope never ends.

another great adventure with Bruno

all though we were left wondering about that stash of old French bank notes the Resistance folks took from the Nazi train.

Excellent!

Each Bruno novel I have read has been delightful but this one goes a step beyond. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire story. Martin Walker has an incredible way of capturing this wonderful part of France, it's people and his food. You will not be disappointed.
