A bumper collection of 14 delightful stories featuring Bruno - Chief of Police and France's favourite cop - all set in the beautiful Dordogne valley and the ravishing Perigord region of south-west France. Here is a landscape of meandering rivers with medieval castles overlooking their banks, lush hillsides and spreading vineyards, delicious local wines and world renowned cuisine.
With titles like Bruno and the Chocolate War
, Bruno and the Birthday Lunch
, A Market Tale
and Fifty Million Bubbles
, you may be sure that champagne and gastronomy feature, as well as cosy crime in Dangerous Vacation
. Bruno strides through these tales, keeping calm, settling local disputes and keeping safe his beloved town of St Denis.
Only on one occasion does he panic: in Bruno's Challenge
, his friend Ivan, proprietor and chef of the town's popular eatery, suddenly collapses on the eve of a large anniversary dinner, and he asks Bruno to take over the restaurant. After a few protests, followed by some deep breaths, the inimitable Bruno meets his challenge, as always.
