The Children Return: A Mystery of the French Countryside (Bruno, Chief of Police Series #7) (Paperback)
Bruno’s village of St. Denis has been called many things, but a hotbed of international intrigue has never been one of them ... until now. When an undercover agent is found murdered just as a prodigal son is set to retun from a grim tour in the Middle East, the small town suddenly finds itself host to a determined global tribunal, threatening the usual cheer brought by St. Denis’s annual wine festival.
“Nicely crafted with sensitivity and humor, The Children Return is tailor-made for fans of Peter Mayle, Colin Cotterill and Alexander McCall Smith." —BookPage
“Bruno Courrèges may be France’s...answer to dapper James Bond.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“A [plot] as volatile as Bruno’s pot au feu.” —Kirkus Reviews
“[Walker’s] juxtaposition of the serene and the darker arts reminds us not to forget to smell the roses.”—The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)
“A solid mystery, with the ever-fascinating character of Bruno at the helm.” —Booklist
“A cozy village mystery needn’t be quaint, and in his blissful novels about Bruno Courrèges... Martin Walker...manages to balance the idyllic charms of his fictional village with substantive issues of concern to Bruno’s neighbors.”—The New York Times Book Review
“In Martin Walker’s delightful series...the charm of rural France is regularly disrupted—but not too much.” —The Seattle Times
“In an era when most Americans are ignorant of France in its true richness, generosity of spirit, and quality of life, Mr. Walker and his Bruno offer an enchanting introduction into this very real world.” —The Washington Times
“Sure to appeal to readers with a palate for mysteries with social nuance and understated charm.” —The Wall Street Journal
