Description
Commissaire Georges Dupin, a Parisian-born caffeine junkie recently relocated from the glamour of Paris to the remote (if picturesque) Breton coast, is not happy when he is dragged from his morning croissant and coffee to the scene of a curious murder. The village of Pont-Aven is in shock. The legendary 91-year-old hotelier Pierre-Louis Pennec, owner of the Central Hotel, has been found murdered. A picture-perfect seaside village that hosted Gauguin in the 19th century, Pont-Aven is usually a sleepy community where everyone knows one other and nothing much seems to happenóbut it is the height of tourist season, and the town is thrown into uproar. An obstinate detective whose unconventional methods include good food, good wine, and taking in plenty of sea air, Dupin finds his case further complicated when he uncovers a web of secrecy and silence that belies the village's quaint image. Jean-Luc Bannalec's series debut, originally published under the title Death in Pont-Aven, is translated here from the original French.

"Dupin is a quirky as his Italian counterparts Montalbano and Brunettióa cheerful, sun-drenched, stress-free whodunit thriller."óDer Spiegel
