Product Overview

Long a renowned crime writer in France, Pierre Magnan has won numerous prizes and has a huge popular following in his native country. Now, with this mouth-watering series debut, Magnan introduces the celebrated Commissaire Laviolette to U.S. readers. In Banon, a small, peaceful village in upper Provence, the local community''s principal source of income is the cultivation and sale of truffles. Tourists rarely venture into this remote region, but a small group of outsiders have chosen to set up home on the outskirts of the village. When one of them is found dead in the freezer of a local hotel, and when more bodies are discovered in a family vault in the cemetery, it takes all of Commissaire Laviolette''s considerable resources to unravel crimes whose origins can be traced to age-old secrets and superstitions. Brimming with delectable food, eccentric suspects, and the passion of Provence, "Death in the Truffle Wood" is an exceptional U.S. debut for the highly lauded Pierre Magnan.
