"" I have enjoyed this series very much from the beginning...""
The body of a young woman is found at the bottom of a well in the grounds of the Chateau Limeuil in the Perigord region of France. She is a wealthy American student pursuing material for her post graduate studies amongst the personal collection of the owner of the Chateau, Monsieur de Bourdeille, an eminent art historian and renowned Resistance hero. Chief of Police Bruno is called in to investigate.
The death could well be an accident but Bruno is not convinced and calls on his experience and long list of contacts at home and abroad to discover the truth. This truth is rooted in the past and ranges the globe from Algeria to Berlin. The victim herself has some very high powered interests in the United States and this results in more pressure on Bruno as the FBI and even the White House are exerting influence. Just as well Bruno's contacts are equally far ranging.
