The “Bruno, Chief of Police” series is set in deepest rural France, and Martin Walker’s love and knowledge of the area shine through.
He describes a France populated by real people, trying to maintain their way of life despite a constant battle with the bureaucrats from Brussels attempting to enforce their rules of homogeneity.
It’s beautifully written with insights into the changing way of life, the politics, the history, the people. Makes you want to go there.
I’ve just finished the 2nd in the series, and it’s just as good.
“Bruno, Chief of Police” is only Â£1.80 as an ebook; why not try it today?
