Summer in the beautiful Périgord region of southern France, the Dordogne Mysteries are the perfect combination of mystery and escapism.

In the little down of St Denis, Bruno is busy organising the annual summer concert. He's hired a local Périgord folk group, Les Troubadours, to perform their latest hit 'A Song for Catalonia'. But when the song goes viral, the Spanish government, clamping down on the Catalonian bid for independence, bans Les Troubadours from performing it.

The timing couldn't be worse, and Bruno finds himself under yet more pressure when a specialist sniper's bullet is found in a wrecked car near Bergerac. The car was reportedly stolen on the Spanish frontier and the Spanish government sends warning that a group of nationalist extremists may be planning an assassination in France. Bruno immediately suspects that Les Troubadours and their audience might be in danger.

Bruno must organise security and ensure that his beloved town and its people are safe - the stakes are high for France's favourite policeman.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Good food, fascinating history, and a crackerjack mystery: who could ask for more? - Publishers Weekly

The gorgeous scenery and delicious meals provide as much entertainment as the action - Sunday Times

While a brilliantly conceived plot builds up to a climax that James Bond might envy, there is pleasure to be had in Martin Walker's sensitive portrayal of a tight-knit community where friendship and mutual support count for more than expediency. Bruno is a hero for our troubled times - Daily Mail

Walker once again delivers a delightful potpourri of southern French La vie en rose and tense action - Irish Independent

This is the perfect Summer escape novel, with a cracking crime at its heart - Sun
