"A darn good mystery with an engaging main character. . . . A rare treat." --The Lincoln Journal Star

"The delights of [Walker's Dordogne]--from the chateaus along the rivers to the prehistoric cave paintings to the food on the tables--are very real. . . . Absorbing." --The New York Times Book Review "A satisfying and surprisingly intimate tour through a modern French village, full of character and charm. . . . The Patriarch in many ways is comparable to vintage wine, a cuvee of disparate tastes, aromas, depths and colors . . . Sant . Drink up." --The Arizona Republic Praise for Martin Walker's Bruno, Chief of Police series "Sure to appeal to readers with a palate for mysteries with social nuance and understated charm." --The Wall Street Journal

"Tailor-made for fans of Peter Mayle, Colin Cotterill and Alexander McCall Smith." --BookPage

"In Martin Walker's delightful series . . . the charm of rural France is regularly disrupted--but not too much." --The Seattle Times "Walker treats readers to lavishly detailed accounts of meals served in farmhouse, restaurant, and at village f tes, giving us cookbook-worthy accounts of ingredients, preparation, and wine pairings." --Booklist (starred review) "Martin Walker's Bruno novels are as delicious as the world class meals his chief of police whips up and as intoxicating as the wines he serves." --Open Letters Monthly

"[Will] delight readers who relish a skillful blend of complex international political nuance and pastoral intrigue mixed with a soup on of fine French wine and cuisine." --Publishers Weekly

"As pleasant as a nice brunch." --The Washington Independent Review of Books
