    When an old man is found viciously murdered, a swastika carved in his chest, the obvious conclusion is that this killing must be racist. Suspicion falls on the son of the local doctor, found in flagrant playing sex games surrounded by Nazi paraphernalia.

    The Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic was called the most beautiful car of all time. Only four of them were ever built. A California museum paid $37 million for one; Ralph Lauren bought another; a third was smashed by a train at a level crossing. The fourth disappeared in France during World War II. It was the car used by British racing ace William Grover Williams, twice winner of the French and Monaco Grand Prix, who became an undercover agent in occupied France.

    In this latest mouthwatering mystery starring country policeman Bruno, the body of a woman is found outside a cave beneath the ruined Templar chateau of Commarque in the heart of the Dordogne. She died of a broken neck. An accidental fall, or was she pushed? The victim carries no identification, and her fingerprints are not known to the French police or Interpol. The only clue to the woman's identity is that her dentistry looks American, but Bruno's inquiries at local hotels and gites yield no trace of a missing foreign woman.

    Springtime in St Denis. It's two weeks before Easter, and Satanism has reared its ugly head. A female body has been found on a boat, bearing the ghastly signs of a black magic ritual. The victim is unknown and nobody is coming forward. This is the last thing Bruno needs. The Chief of Police-come-culinary connoisseur has too much on his plate as it is, mediating both a domestic abuse case and a local development proposal that seems just too good to be true. Moreover, he has no one to share these stresses with. His dog, Gigi, is gone, as are his usual roster of ladies.

    Just before dawn one late-summer morning, Captain Bruno Courrèges is roused from sleep by the wail of the town siren atop the Mairie, summoning the volunteer firemen of St Denis. Bruno, the only policeman in the small Périgord town, follows the fire engines towards the site of a large barn, now engulfed in flames, the surrounding fields ablaze. Everything points to arson. A Californian wine maker is planning to buy up half the valley to create a huge wine-producing operation.

    Bruno, now Chief of Police for the whole Vézère valley, has an unusual challenge to rise to: teaching at his friend Pamela's new cookery school. It is a daunting prospect; the disappearance of one of the school's pupils almost serves as a welcome distraction. When the woman's body is discovered in one half of a double homicide, the evidence points to something far out of the ordinary. The other murder victim is a man, covered in combat scars and with a false passport. Investigations reveal a list of enemies as long as Bruno's arm. Any one of them would have had good reason to kill him - but which group managed it? And how did they find him? As more of their mystery man's previous life is revealed, Bruno realizes that there may be more intended victims in the vicinity. Now he must conduct the biggest manhunt in St Denis' history to find the killers before they strike again.

    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.

    Martin Walkers Romane spielen im geschichtsträchtigen Périgord mit seinen herrlichen Landschaften und trutzigen Burgen. Von einer dieser Burgen, Commarque, brachen im Mittelalter die Tempelritter zu Kreuz­zügen nach Jerusalem auf. Tausend Jahre später nimmt das einstige Morgenland eine späte Revanche in der Person einer jungen Archäologin, die wild entschlossen scheint, bei den damaligen Eroberern einen sagenumwobenen geraubten Schatz sowie ein politisch höchst explosives altes Dokument zu­tage zu fördern.

    Das Périgord ist das gastronomische Herzland Frankreichs - neuerdings auch wegen seiner aus historischen Rebsorten gekelterten Weine. Doch die Cuvée Éléonore, mit der die weitverzweigte Familie des Kriegshelden Desaix an ihre ruhmreiche Vergangenheit anknüpfen will, ist für Bruno, Chef de police, eindeutig zu blutig im Abgang.

    Im Wein liegt die Wahrheit - aber es gibt Wahrheiten, die will man lieber nicht wissen. Im sechsten "Bruno"-Roman geht es um einen glorreichen Eisenbahnraub durch die französische Résistance und die unrühmliche Verwendung der Beute. Um die Enthüllungsstory einer französischen Historikerin über Frankreichs Nuklearverteidigung, die kurz vor Drucklegung entwendet wird.

    Für Brunos Geschmack ist im malerischen Saint Denis im Périgord entschieden zu viel los: Ein spanisch-französisches Gipfeltreffen ruft die Separatistenbewegung ETA auf den Plan, eine Gänsefarm wird von Tierschutzaktivisten attackiert, und dann ist da auch noch die archäologische Ausgrabungsstätte, deren deutscher Forschungsleiter nach einem prähistorischen Menschen sucht.
