Summary

Life in south-west rural France is not the sleepy idyll you might suppose. Local duck and goose farms are being attacked by animal rights protestors attempting to halt the production of foie gras. A senior policeman has been shot by terrorists believed to be the Basque Separatists of ETA.
And if that weren’t enough, a group of students have just unearthed a ‘modern’ skeleton during a dig at one of the ancient sites of this famous region and home to prehistoric man - a dig that has brought an influx of foreigners to the Dordogne. It is up to Chief of Police Bruno Courrèges to get to the bottom of these seemingly unrelated events.

Enjoyable read

Another good story in the Inspector Bruno series set in the Dordogne region of France with lots of Gallic charm and atmosphere. Very ably read by Bill Wallis

Typically French

Lovely story so typical of french life. The treatment of the new magistrate by the farmers is very funny. The description of the food & recipes is mouthwatering. A great read.

Bill Wallis reading is the 'Icing on this Cake'

The Narrator Bill Wallis makes this an enjoyable listen. Having heard other narrators read Mr Walker's Brubo books I have to think that if Bill is not reading I would rather the hard copy and read myself.

Like many others I love the other faces of Bruno, his wine and cheese and odd description of a dish. his garden, his love affairs (without too much detail) and his yearning to be a Dad..
These are charming stories and Bruno is very much his own man who loves his villiage and the people in it.

The stories are better without the superman aspects, like jumping out of burning buildings, however I can live with that, as Bruno is such a likeable cop.
