Publisher's Summary

France’s Périgord region is the home of the black truffle and at five thousand euros a kilo, the exquisite ‘Black Diamond’ is a treasured local asset. When reports come in that this unique delicacy is being adulterated with a cheaper Chinese version, Captain Bruno Courrèges is asked to investigate the scam. But matters take a much darker turn when a horrific murder occurs, and Bruno has his work cut out to find the connection between present crimes and long-buried ones that are linked to France’s colonial past.

Good suspense story

It's probably impossible to write an authentic or convincing story about someone else's country - I've lived in England half my life, but couldn't claim to understand how it works! Still, if you regard Martin Walker's books as science-fiction of a sort, they are intriguing and well plotted, full of twists and turns, good fantasy.

Excellent narration makes this book

I was glad I read the first of the series on Kindle as the Audible narrator would have stopped me buying, and reading, it and I would have missed a great series. Sadly the narrator changes again and I am not sure I will buy the rest of the series from book 5 onward, and may well return to Kindle as he just doesn't have what Bill Wallis brings to the tale.
