About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Given that the plot revolves around a French university theology department, Longworth could have consulted at least one genuine syllabus to work out the subjects covered and who might be teaching or studying them. Although not directly concerning the case, I thought that the Epilogue did wind everything up rather nicely.

This is why the Martin Walker trillers set in the Dordogne are so much more enjoyable you feel you are with the characters as they take you through the storyline. The director was about to announce the recipient of a fellowship and also his successor as director which includes quite a perk: the beautiful apartment in the 17th century mansion. A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there’s more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret. Lots of background that really does not help solve the case at all, but makes for nice reading and makes the people more human. Het begint allemaal heel “cosy” en Longworth neemt uitgebreid de tijd om de personages voor te stellen en de omgeving te omschrijven.

Georges Moutte, the chair of the theology department at the University d’Aix, who was about to retire. With deftly shifting points of view, Longworth creates a beguiling read that will appeal to Louise Penny and Donna Leon fans. My weakness for french cuisine did cause hold ups in the reading as I diverted from the text to look up the recipe of a particular delicious morcel ( in case it had anything to do with the plot - you understand! She has written about the region for the Washington Post , the Times (London), the Independent (London), and Bon Appétit . Aided by his on-again, off-again girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, Berlaque must turn Provence upside down, uncovering a world far more complicated than university politics, to find the killer before it’s too late.
