The Crowded Grave: The Dordogne Mysteries 4
Life in south France is not the sleepy idyll you might suppose. Local duck and goose farms are being attacked by protestors attempting to halt the production of foie gras. A policeman has been shot by terrorists believed to be Basque Separatists. It is up to Bruno CourrÃÂ¨ges to get to the bottom of these unrelated events.
Spanish separatists, angry activists and a mystery corpse: Bruno, chief of police has has his work cut out in the fourth in this internationally bestselling series.
Life in the South of France isn’t full of the charming peace that you might imagine. In St Denis a summit in a local chÃÂ¢teau is threatened by Basque separatists, animal rights campaigners are causing havoc and it’s about to get worse.
A local archaeological team unearths a well-preserved skeleton. Yet it’s a lot more recent than they’d hoped – boasting a Swatch on its wrist and a bullet-hole in its skull.
Meanwhile, an influx of visitors makes Saint Denis unusually crowded, and the key to the body appears to lie with one of these outsiders. Bruno must think fast and keep his wits about him in order to work out how these events are connected. Especially if the answer lies a little closer to home.
