|Summary, etc.:|| The third installment in Martin Walker's series featuring Chief of Police Bruno.In the space of a few weeks, the normally sleepy village of St. Denis sees attacks on Vietnamese vendors, arson at a local Asian restaurant, subpar truffles from China smuggled into outgoing shipments at a nearby market-all of it threatening the Dordogne's truffle trade, worth millions of dollars each year, and all of it spelling trouble for Benoît “Bruno” Courrèges, master chef, devoted oenophile, and, most important, beloved chief of police. When one of his hunting partners, a noted truffle expert, is murdered, Bruno's investigation into the murky events unfolding around St. Denis becomes infinitely more complicated. His friend wasn't just a connoisseur of French delicacies, he was a former high-profile intelligence agent-and someone wanted him dead. Bruno's detective work takes him from sunlit markets to dim cafés, from luxurious feasts to tense negotiations-from all of the paradisial pleasures of the region to its shadowy underworld-and reunites him with a lost love, an ambitious policewoman also assigned to the case.
