Fatal Pursuit: A Mystery of the French Countryside (Bruno, Chief of Police Series #9) (Paperback)
It’s the start of summer, and Bruno’s found himself the last-minute replacement navigator in a car rally race. The event has attracted a spate of outsiders with deep pockets, big egos and, in the case of one young Englishman, an intriguing story about a lost Bugatti Type 57C. Having disappeared somewhere in France during World War II, and worth millions of dollars, it’s among the most beautiful cars ever made, driving its pursuers mad with greed.
When a local scholar turns up dead, Bruno suspects unnatural causes. Still, while life may offer its challenges—often in the form of distractingly comely Parisiennes—there is always time for a good bottle and a home-cooked meal.
“Thrilling and truly élégante…. Walker has created an object of desire more delectable than the festive meals Bruno always prepares for his friends.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Engagingly droll…. The icing on the gâteau is Bruno himself. Of all the cops in all the cop books I've read, he is the one whose home I would like to visit, to partake in one of his delicious-sounding meals and perhaps a bottle of Bergerac red.” —Bruce Tierney, BookPage
“[A] pleasing puzzle.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A veritable feast of world-class skullduggery. A genuine plus is the passionate descriptions of the cars and the experience of driving them. This souped-up mystery is another winner.” —Open Letters Monthly
“A feast, from scenery to food to Bugattis.” —Booklist, starred review
