This book is the second book of the crime fiction trilogy by R.M.Cartmel. I read the first book a few months ago and really enjoyed it so was eager to read this one too, and I can say it did not disappoint!
The second in the Commander Truchaud series finds the diffident policeman unravelling yet another mystery in the little Burgundy village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. A young German tourist seems to have gone missing. But what at first appears quite a straightforward affair soon turns dark when a decomposing body is found in the woods.
Another episode of murder, mayhem, violence and villainy in the orderly vineyards of Burgundy.
R.M.Cartmel is very clever and witty and writes crime stories so well. This book has many twists and turns and has you wanting more throughout the book. It’s not a massive book so doesn’t take long to get through, but it’s also an easy read. I would recommend this book but I would it’s best to read the first one before you read this one. I’m looking forward to reading part 3 in the trilogy.
You can find this book on Amazon for £4.79
